When my vision for Stone, Spirit and Fire began, I wanted to weave into my company a way of giving back.

This vision was inspired by my favorite Ghandi quote. I believe each one of us can make the world a better place, by the choices we make. That choice can be as simple as a smile to a stranger, no act is too small. If we join together in reaching out to others, our efforts multiply.

A portion of all sales will be donated to others who are making a difference

Keeping with that vision, I'm proud to share that in 2017 10% of our Sales were donated to the amazing causes below. Each organization brings awareness, compassion and support to others around the globe. My hope is that those in need are blessed with hope and empowerment, knowing that there are people reaching out to say "we care".

 Social Catalysts Charitable Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, is a novel social enterprise that supports social and environmental change while improving the lives of people with disabilities. Our first major initiative is to create employment opportunities for adults with disabilities while improving our environment by producing new products from recycled videotapes. We provide social service agencies with the tools and the training for their clients with disabilities. These clients weave a beautiful cloth out of reclaimed videotapes, which is sewn into totes, handbags and other items by professional seamstresses, then is marketed and sold by Social Catalysts. In the process, we’re making productive use of the miles of videotape that are migrating to our landfills.

 The Lalla Project is a collaboration of yogis, artists, musicians, poets and concerned citizens who believe that love and freedom are our birthright. Through the rebirth of the ancient poetic teachings of 14th century mystic Lalla, we are offered the opportunity to shed all that does not serve love, and to find compassion for our bodies, our souls, all sentient beings, the earth, and the universe. We believe that it is out of this place of love and deep honoring that freedom is born.  Using our collective passion, talents, wisdom, life experience and Lalla’s poetry as a platform for change, we hope to help people across the world find freedom, self-love, equality and peace. A child bride and victim of abuse herself in a time where freedom was almost unheard of for women, Lalla is the voice and the hope for those who are silenced or who do not know yet how to find the words for their pain. Many of these silent cries come from the 70 million child brides of today, and from the countless girls and boys who are victims of sexual abuse.
