Chavez for Charity
Co-founded in 2013, Chavez for Charity has always represented an ambitious vision: a business that would allow Julie and Joe Chavez to contribute in a big way. Julie and Joe set forth with a new business idea that would build off each of their backgrounds. Julie's as the founder and designer of a small, highly coveted jewelry line, and Joe’s as a marketing and business development guru, both with big companies and popular celebrities backing their work.
Established with their trademark concept, "Colors for Causes," Chavez for Charity launched with their cornerstone line of bracelets boasting ten colors in the collection, each one representing a distinct cause. With every sale, their company would donate 25% of profits to a corresponding charity. As the company has grown, so have the causes Joe and Julie have adopted to support with each purchase.
In 2014, the company received Whole Planet Foundation’s Vanguard Award for its commitment to promoting sustainable practices and changing global environments. They now have over 6,000 stores across the U.S. and Canada carrying their iconic collection. With their ever-growing line of quality jewelry, Chavez for Charity stands at the forefront of inspiring others, creating community, and raising funds to transform the lives of people in need throughout the world.
