Each necklace is uniquely hand-stamped and assembled by a guest at Whole Way House Society in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The part-time work gives an opportunity for someone who struggles with mental health and/or addiction issues to creatively work with their hands at their own pace and in a safe and comfortable environment to ReBuild dignity, value and purpose in their lives.
The proceeds from each necklace go to the ‘Ron Konkin Legacy Fund’ for couples and families in crisis to attend the Relationship Lifeline weekend, which was Founded by Ron & Tina Konkin and also to help fund the Community Programs at Whole Way House.
This is the legacy that Co-Founders, Jenny & Josh’s father, Ron Konkin, left them after he was diagnosed with terminal melanoma in 2009 and passed away on December 25, 2013. We hope you will be inspired to start asking yourself “What legacy do I GET TO leave?” and live each day on purpose to positively impact those around you. Full story at www.igetto.ca
