Aid your anxiety whilst sending aid to India
India’s Corona lockdown is the harshest in the world! As a result, many people are homeless and starving.
Let’s feed India together!
Charlotte is in constant contact with our artisans in India and the cottage industries and families our business supports. Since global crisis has hit with the Coronavirus pandemic; although we are relieved to hear that our team in Jaipur, Rajasthan and their families are safe and well, they have informed us of how absolutely dire the situation is for so many in India.
Charlotte’s Web want to send crucial aid to the impoverished of our beloved Rajasthan. India’s daily wage workers are left starving without means to earn. What’s more, as many people lived in their work locations, lockdown rendered them penniless and homeless with no means of transport to get home to their families. This resulted in the biggest mass migration since partition. The unimaginable horror of people trekking for hundreds of kilometres on foot and starving to death en route.
Our spinning jewellery made in Jaipur, Rajasthan is an anxiety aid used for centuries to help relieve stress. For every worry/meditation ring, and every piece of stress relieving spinning jewellery sold we will be donating a vital Grocery Kit to India’s impoverished via Donatekart. These will go to the daily wage labourers and slum dwellers which the pandemic has crippled, leaving them unable to earn their daily bread. £5 from each Spinning jewellery purchase buys a grocery kit, which can feed a family from the marginalised community for one week.
Labourers and homeless not fighting Covid19 are fighting starvation to survive. Our Spinning Jewellery provides stress relief for the wearer and vital relief for Rajasthan, where it was handmade with love.
We want to give some love back.
If you would like to donate but aren't in a position to buy any jewellery currently, then we have set up a page just for donations, please click here.
