CAUSES WE SUPPORT
Learn about the causes we support. This is by no means a complete list, as we are very active in supporting various causes and advocating through journalism and other means. When you support any of our sites, you help us support the causes below! Each cause will talk about the cause, how we help, and how you can get involved too!
We donate a minimum of 10% each sale every time to whatever the featured cause might be, but often, it's more. So, every time you wear our custom healing jewelry and other crafts,you are supporting the featured cause listed below.
The current featured cause is minority-owned businesses in Denver, Colorado. We have a running list of these businesses and will choose one from those struggling at random to get the 10% or more. Each business will benefit for a month at a time, so a new one will be chosen each month. This is to give the most benefit to each business, since we are a small business as well and will have slow and busy days. If you are a Denver-based small business owned by a minority (Black, Asian, Native American, etc), Contact Us to get added to the list. This does not guarantee you will be chosen but it does get on the list we randomly choose from. This list will also be organized and published as a resource for potential customers to find minority-owned businesses in Denver.
In the past, every purchase made on our family hobby & arts store, Intent-sive Nature would help homeless pets. The jewelry side of our business was started to help this cause. But we've now decided to feature a different cause periodically. The shelter we donate to most often is Denver Dumb Friends League, as we love their efforts in giving animals a voice they don't always have. Some of their programs include low and no-cost spay/neuter/vaccines, TNR outreach, senior adoption programs, and more! We have also donated to other local shelters, such as The Denver Animal Shelter.
Homelessness in America
Homelessness is a major issue in America. This country needs to treat its homeless better, better understand why and how they got to that point, fix the system that got most of them there, as well as better help them get safely housed. We spread the word on this, as well as donate items and funds to local organizations within this cause whenever we are able.
Making sure trans youth have a voice, support, and a safe place to go if need be is one of our passions. These youth are often at risk and in danger for many reasons. We spread the word about justices and injustices surrounding this cause, as well as support worthy organizations who help these at-risk youth.
From our name, you can tell that healing is our life passion. From the healing jewelry, to healing words of wisdom, to helping brands and people heal from the inside out, we strive to always promote healing in all we do. The world needs more of that and the best way to ensure something gets done is to do it yourself. So, we are!
Equality For All
We support equal rights for all, regardless of age, gender, race, religion, non-religion, sexual orientation, or any other labels. We don't believe in labels. We believe in humans, civil rights, and freedom of speech for one and all. We help spread the word about justice and injustice through the written word and allow our guest writers freedom of expression to do the same. We also support worthy causes with the same mission whenever we are able. As such, we are an equal opportunity platform and do not choose our clients or approve submissions based on labels.
Helping "Starving Artists" Succeed
We've been there before, so we know what it's like to barely get by freelancing. We strive to not only teach freelancers how to make more and help set them up with the tools and knowledge needed, but to also provide opportunities for them when we have them. This could be writing, editing, photography, marketing, publicity, social media, and more!
Supporting Small & Minority Businesses
We have always had a passion for supporting small businesses and minority-owned businesses. We know what it is like to be both a small company, as well as one run by minorities. We choose these businesses to make purchases from and donate to wherever possible, especially when they are artisans.
Spreading Peace And Love
We are on a continuous mission to spread peace and love to the masses. From motivational writing, to helping the homeless, positive support everywhere, healing services, and in everything else we do, we strive to promote and spread peace and love to as many people as possible. We hope others follow suit and do the same!
