I am proud to share the 828 Movement with you. The 828 Movement is a non-profit organization where 100% of the product proceeds go directly towards supporting education in underfunded schools across the USA.
The organization started when two friends came together in May 2017 with the hopes of making a small impact. It expanded from there to honor the President, Margot Sandy’s recently passed Grandmother who was a humanitarian, college graduate, teacher, community leader and advocate for change.
Margot who is an Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, Product Development Engineer with 10+ years experience in industry and has been traveling the world while running an entrepreneurial enterprise hopes to raise awareness on some of the persistent unequal issues in our school systems, provides examples of career paths for students and recognize the efforts of our teachers.
The 828 Movement continues to spread positive images of people past and present that are doing great things in the community. They also offer a way for everyone to participate in the fight for education equality, by introducing stylish new jewelry items to proudly wear and hopefully make a difference with the school donations and upcoming college scholarships.
100% OF THE NET PROFITS GO TO UNDERFUNDED URBAN AREA SCHOOLS IN AMERICA.
EACH RING AND COLOR CHOICE HAS A MEANING TO HONOR THE PAST EFFORTS FOR EQUALITY, SUPPORT THE PRESENT PURSUITS FOR JUSTICE AND STAY HOPEFUL FOR THE FUTURE.
• The Past: 13 metal rings
To remember the 13th amendment and lives lost
in the struggle to abolish slavery.
• The Present: Engraved ring for August 28th
To honor the date 8/28, when important events in the fight for equality line up in history.
• The Future: a single ring for hope
The pursuit for educational equality continues
EDUCATION IS AN IMPORTANT ISSUE WE ALL CAN SUPPORT TOGETHER. BY BUYING AND WEARING AN 828 BRACELET WE ARE STANDING UP AGAINST INEQUALITY IN OUR SCHOOLS.
