COPPER+CRONE and SHOP TO END MS
The vision of our store has always included contributing something of value in addition to bringing our customers gorgeous pieces made by women artisans. We knew we wanted to design a store and business that aligns with our personal values, proving that we shouldn't have to choose between people and profit, that in fact our profit comes from supporting people.
So, we are in the beginning phases of applying to become a Certified B Corp (more to follow on that in the coming weeks) and learning how to run a successful business while also trying to be the kind of store where our customers know that their money is doing some good in the world.
Supporting the National MS Society with a permanent collection on our site was an easy choice for us, given that both owners have a direct and daily connection to the disease. There are roughly 1 million adults living in the U.S. with MS and 74% of them are women. The disease is often diagnosed at around 30 years old, and affects every patient differently.
The National MS Society was founded in 1946 by Ms. Sylvia Lawry who was determined to help her brother Bernard when he began suffering from the disease in 1915. She profoundly influenced research, disease management, and public policy concerning this complex neurological disease. (NMS website).
SHOP TO END MS
When you shop at C+C and see the "SHOP TO END MS" logo, you know that a percentage of proceeds from that item will go toward our annual support of the society.
We will be walking on May 1 in the Roselle, Illinois Walk to End MS with Team Johnson! Click the link to learn more about walks in your area, or to support our team!
We thank you so much for your support of COPPER+CRONE, and for your overwhelming support of SHOP TO END MS. We are restocking the bracelets and adding more styles (and even some kid's sizes too!)
Love. Balance. Health. Happiness.
