Chavez for Charity Bracelets Benefit Local Charity

Chavez for Charity


June 2016 - We've pleased to partner with Chavez for Charity to benefit the local charity, "The Time is Now," as well as global initiatives like water.org and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation.

Chavez for Charity is a collection of colorful bracelets created to raise money and awareness for some of today's most important and necessary charitable initiatives. Each color represents a specific charity, and Chavez for Charity donates 25% of the gross profit from the sale of each colored bracelet to its corresponding cause. Founded in 2013 by Julie Chavez and Joe Cerbo, Chavez for Charity has raised more than $1 million for their partner charities, and is the honoree for the 2016 Industry Achievement Award by Gift for Life!

When the company was approached by retailers who wanted to support specific local and national charities besides the ten selected by Chavez for Charity, they developed the "11th Project."

The 11th Project gives individual retailers the opportunity to support a favorite charity through the sale of Chavez for Charity's clear, cream, and white colored charity bracelets.

Cornerstone Shop owners Karin & Bruce Bennett selected "The Time is Now" as the recipient of the proceeds from the store's participation in the 11th Project. Chavez for Charity will donate 25% of the gross profit from the sale of these bracelets to The Time is Now. In addition, Cornerstone Shop & Gallery will match that donation!

"The Time is Now has helped an average of 500 extremely poverty-stricken individuals annually for the past 28 years. Sal DiMiceli's generosity and vision have made a positive impact in our community, and he continues to raise funds to provide basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing, toiletries to improve the quality of life of our neighbors in need," said Karin.

The Time is Now exists solely to alleviate the suffering of those facing economic hardship, whether it be through job loss, loss of a spouse, extreme medical expenses or other crises. The Time is Now provides goods and services such as food, clothing, utilities, toiletries, automobile and shelter assistance to help those in need live more comfortably, improve their quality of life and remove their pain and suffering.

You can make a difference and inspire others when you wear Chavez for Charity bracelets. By spreading the word, you'll help raise awareness for causes like The Time is Now and others.
