Life comes alive with purpose when we pool our resources to reach out and help one another. I am passionate about supporting causes that reflect my beliefs; for this reason I have created our Jewels of Kindness program to benefit organizations close to my heart. If you are involved with a charity or special event and are looking for ways to fundraise, feel free to contact the studio for information on how we may be able to help.
Recently, Jes took her family to visit Gentle Barn in Santa Clarita California. After hearing about the wonderful work Ellie Laks and Jay Weiner have been doing rehabilitating barn animals, Jes was excited to have a look for herself. What she discovered was an absolute haven for once severely abused and neglected animals. Not only are they treated like kings and queens, with the best food, medical care and plenty of room to roam, their presence serves a dual purpose of educating children (including special needs and at risk youth). Jes felt an instant kinship with Ellie and Jay as their life’s mission is the same; creating awareness and compassion for all living things.
After a wonderful day together, Jes is thrilled to announce she will be donating 20% of all proceeds from the Gentle Barn Collection to Gentle Barn Foundation.
Please visit the www.gentlebarn.org for more information on this extraordinary place of refuge and education.
