The Orphanage Aid creates defiant jewelry with a purpose. Using abundant local materials like graffiti, The Orphanage Aid's focus is to employ, educate, and empower disadvantaged women in Detroit.
WHO IS THE ORPHANAGE AID
Rebel Nell evolved from two proud Detroiters with a passion for making and designing jewelry. We love the Motor City and the people who live here. We created The Ophanage Aid as an opportunity to give back to the community that has given so much to us. Our mission is to employ disadvantaged women in Detroit to make jewelry, educate them on business and life management skills, and empower them to transition to an independent life.
We will use the money we raise during this campaign to hire our first round of women, rent the workspace, and purchase materials. We are so excited for this endeavour and we would love for you to be a part of the journey. Thank you for your encouragement and support!
OUR FUNDRAISING GOAL
We have set out to raise $18,400. Reaching this goal will enable us to hire four (4) women and provide them with a monthly salary of $1500 a month for three (3) months. We will use the remaining $6,500 for materials, tools, training and rent. We plan to be sustainable not long after our initial fundraising campaign so that we can hire more women and continue to grow at a healthy pace.
We have an array of giving levels for every interest. Regardless of your giving level, your contribution is a siginficant step forward in the future of The Orphanage Aid. Your generosity will help get The Orphanage Aid off the ground and change the lives of women ready for a transitional opportunity, one that will take them out of the shelters once and for all.
Your contribution can really make a difference.
