Give Back to Your Community with a Special Sip ‘N Sparkle

During these times of uncertainty, now more than ever, we continue to live our mission of being a Force For Good® and creating a ripple effect of love, light and kindness in the world.

Our jewelry does something that nothing else out there does – it tells stories, it says “thank you,” it puts a smile on someone’s face {even in times of darkness}, it’s unique, customizable and personal. When you host a virtual Sip, Sparkle, Share Stories and Spread Kindness Give Back Jewelry Bar, you can give back to someone or something in your community that needs a blessing during this time.

Origami Owl® Senior Director of Field Training and Operations Dawn Campbell shared lots of helpful tips and ideas in the O2 Virtual Academy Facebook Group on Wednesday about how to make an impact and give back to your local community with a Sip ‘N Sparkle Give Back.

Today, Dawn shared more about how to have a Sip ‘N Sparkle Give Back. Watch it now and take a look at the tips and resources below.

How to Have a Sip. Sparkle. Share Stories and Spread Kindness Give Back!

Think of someone you want to support: a friend or family member who recently lost their job and is having trouble paying their bills, nurses and doctors; your child’s teacher, local first responders, restaurant or small business owners in your community – anyone who needs a simple “thank you” or a blessing in their lives right now.

Here are the tips for your virtual Sip, Sparkle, Share Stories and Spread Kindness Give Back:

  1. Find a VIP to host your virtual Sip, Sparkle, Share Stories and Spread Kindness Give Back. OR be your own VIP (Hostess)!
  2. Set a give back goal.
  3. Create a Jewelry Bar® link.
  4. Share the link with your VIP and invite others to join in.
  5. Sip, Sparkle, Share Stories and Spread Kindness during your virtual Jewelry Bar. Share stories of how each purchase can make an impact for the chosen person or organization to bless. Use the Sip, Sparkle, Share Stories and Spread Kindness Jewelry Bar outline for more ideas!
  6. At the close of the Jewelry Bar, make donation.
  7. Thank each participant for helping you to give back and joining you in being a Force For Good.

How You’ve Given Back + Can Continue to Give Back

We’ve been honored to give a little sparkle back on your behalf over the past three years. Because of you, we were able to gift Aris and Vanessa a wheelchair-accessible van and send Lexi and Tiley on a memorable family vacation to Disneyland. Last year, we were able to gift a check and a shopping spree to Becky and Landon.

All of this is because YOU have been a Force For Good®, encouraging your Customers to purchase our Live Sparkly Multi-Color Stardust Swarovski Crystals. The Stardust Crystals give back 100% of the profits to the annual campaign. You also helped share our Live Sparkly pieces that gave back from our Live Sparkly Force For Good Shop and our Giving Tuesday offers!

Our Live Sparkly campaign is the heart of who we are and our mission to be a Force For Good, and we are grateful for every way you partner with us to give back to our community.
