Giving Back as a Small Biz Owner

If there is one thing that I love more than independent designers doing what they love its independent designers who give back! Marie Khediguian is one of those designers! Her collection of modern, edgy jewelry at Markhed Design gives back to charitable organizations every month. I love small business owners like Marie.

Here’s what she has to say about her donations…

My philosophy in life is do good and give back. I try my best to give as much time and money to charities as I can.

Currently Markhed Design gives regularly monthly donations to the Canadian Humane society (SPCA) through Canada Helps…

Markhed also has some products whose proceeds partly go to ending violence against women globally. At this moment, the female pelvic necklace is the main product…

Giving back like that is certainly more than enough to make me want to support Marie and her (amazing) jewelry line, but if you need a tiny bit more convincing, here’s another way Marie is giving back right now: with a discount just for you!

Especially for papernstitch customers! Take 10% off your whole order by using the coupon code paper10 at checkout. How awesome is that? Visit Markhed Design on Etsy now to use your discount and browse Marie’s quirky, cool shop.
