When I first dreamed of starting my own business, I knew that I wanted the impact to be more than just jewelry. My community here in Savannah has shaped me as a person and an artist in ways I could never have imagined, and it’s only natural that I should want to give back.
I’m so proud that Kristen Baird® Jewelry is a local small business with a large national reach. We are committed to honoring our deep Savannah roots by supporting our community in ways both large and small. Throughout the year, we donate to numerous organizations that strengthen our community. We’ve also built ongoing partnerships with outstanding charities whose mission especially aligns with our own.
A portion of our annual budget is specifically set aside to support these incredible people making a lasting positive impact on Savannah and the world. Read on to learn more about our wonderful community partners.
Kristen Baird® Jewelry is proud to be partnering with Tharros Place as our key nonprofit partner for 2023-2034. Tharros Place is a residential home - in development - for girls between the ages of 11-17 who are survivors of human trafficking. Tharros, which means courage in Greek, is the motivating support for survivors which allows them to envision the future that they desire for themselves. Tharros provides trauma-informed therapy, transitional housing, and customized success plans for survivors to thrive.
Throughout our ongoing partnership, Kristen Baird® Jewelry will be hosting special promotions, pop-ups, and more to support this incredible organization.
