We love giving freedom even more than we love giving jewelry. Our founder and designer, Jen, has been the guiding light behind our brand's purpose of giving freedom and goal to rescue and prevent millions from human and sex trafficking. In order to make these efforts a reality, we strategically select, highlight, and donate to organizations that are constantly making strides towards a world without slavery.
It is only fitting that along with celebrating Giving Tuesday, we highlight the organizations we support. Currently we are contributing to these outstanding change makers:
International Justice Mission - Focuses on protecting poor people from violence in the developing world. IJM has rescued more than 25,000 people throughout the world and the work the organization does daily protects 21 million people from violence and trauma, providing freedom to those suffering.

buildOn - Empowers youth in the US to make a difference through transforming their neighborhoods and community through valiant service. Additionally, buildOn constructs a new school every 3 days in the poorest of countries, helping to bring children into a life of freedom and opportunity. Click here to visit buildOn's site.
We are so motivated by the work of these organizations; the proof of their efforts is evident! IJM's work in rescue missions is critical in the fight to end slavery, making this a charity strongly loved by Jen. Additionally, the preventative work done by buildOn - to keep children from a path of slavery - inspires Jen and our team to contribute to them.
Please take a moment and get to know these charities we love so dearly because giving is truly what defines JEN HANSEN. In Jen's words, "giving is true luxury".
xo, TEAM JEN HANSEN
