Every year, Origami Owl® asks for touching stories of individuals or families in need of receiving a little “sparkle” back in their lives through our annual Live Sparkly® “Share the Sparkle” campaign.
Our Designers came through, and our 2019 nominees were so deserving.
At the O2 L.E.A.D. Empowerment Summit, Origami Owl Co-Founders Bella Weems-Lambert, Chrissy Weems, Tyson Basha and Shawn Maxwell took to the stage to share the story who received the most votes.
And the 2019 Live Sparkly “Share the Sparkle” Campaign Recipients Are…
Note: A big thank you to Dave & Busters and Modern Corp Auto Sales in Ft. Myers, Florida for making this day special for the Machado family so they could commemorate their parents.
How You Gave Back With Live Sparkly
“That was because of you guys,” shared Origami Owl Co-Founder Bella Weems-Lambert. “We feel so blessed we could have had that experience with them. It’s unbelievable what that family has been through. Being able to bring a little light and hope into their lives is so special.”
Gratefully, Origami Owl’s Designers sold so much Live Sparkly Multi-colored Swarovski Stardust and Live Sparkly Force For Good® looks from past promotions that we were also able to give back to the other three Live Sparkly nominees!
Origami Owl gifted checks to each of the following families to help bring a little sparkle back into their lives. Read their stories:
- $3,000 check to the Nuñez Family – nominated by Designer Julissa Schuster — Read their story here.
- $3,000 check to the Raffone Family – nominated by Designer Shelley Licknack — Read their story here.
- $7,000 check to Alyssa Nolan-Cain (and Tiny Homes) – nominated by Designers Lacey Adelmann and Barbara Gomes (it costs $7,000 to build one Tiny Home)
Origami Owl Co-Founder Chrissy Weems recently went to California to help build a Tiny Home and experience the organization for herself. Watch this powerful story here.
All funds raised from our Live Sparkly Multi-colored Swarovski® Stardust profits in 2020 will benefit the next giveback campaign! Keep sharing and stay tuned for details on when you can nominate someone for the fifth annual Live Sparkly “Share the Sparkle” campaign.
