WHAT Is the spare change project?

We wanted to create a special line of jewelry that would not only share the stories of world changing organizations; but actually make an impact. When you purchase from the Spare Change Project collection, 25% of the proceeds go to our featured organization.

Our mission

Our mission for the Spare Change Project is threefold:

  1. Tell stories of world changing organizations.

  2. Give you a tangible way to advocate for them.

  3. Give you a tangible way to partner with them.


how does it work?

Each season we will pick an inspiring individual or organization creating change in communities around the world and develop a jewelry line telling their story while simultaneously giving back a percentage of the proceeds to this partnership. This means that when you order a piece of jewelry from the Spare Change Project line you will not only be hearing the story of an incredible organization doing good in our communities, but you will be joining the cause!

5 powerful words. 5 powerful values


love

The refugee experience often involves isolation and loneliness due to being in a new country and speaking a different language. Through a weekly after-school club, refugee kids hear the message that they are loved and valued not despite their differences, but because of them. We aim to celebrate their culture while helping them adjust to life in the United States where they can thrive and grow as joyful leaders in all areas of life.

Worthy

Anna experienced sexual exploitation for years, spending time in and out of jail, believing the lie that she was worth only what men were willing to pay for her. She recently graduated from a specialty court program called RISE. She told the audience at her graduation that the biggest change in her life is that now she knows she is worthy and she can now look people in the eyes because she is not filled with shame.

 

free

Sadie became a victim of sex trafficking at the age of 12 and endured years of abuse and incarceration. She served time in jail on prostitution charges even though she was a victim. Today, she is going to school, moving into her own place, attending relationship-building events at The Net, and experiencing true freedom for the first time.

hope

Hope is evident when one of our friends experiencing homelessness meets with a volunteer life coach who listens to their dreams and commits to walking alongside them to turn those goals into dreams. It might be the first time they’ve imagined a hopeful future for themselves in a long time.

 

grace

Grace is a core value of The Net because we believe that all people have inherent dignity and worth. Everyone who comes into The Net is met with this attitude; whoever they were or are on the streets is not important. God has extended them grace, so we extend our hands in friendship and get to know them as dignified, valuable, worthy individuals.
