Lauren Akins x Ladybird
Lauren Akins has teamed up with Ladybird to create a line of fine jewelry that benefits the children of Uganda. The line of necklaces range in price according to the materials used: silver, gold, and rose gold with diamonds. Each necklace is adorned with three charms: a solid heart, a cross, the number 1. These charms are of course symbols of the charity affiliated with the collaboration, Love One International.
This past year, the Akins family got to bring their beautiful daughter Willa Gray home to Nashville from Uganda, and we truly love to watch their family grow and flourish. Love One International continues its efforts to help the orphan crisis in Uganda, and now you can help too. The necklaces are available on Lauren's website, laurenakins.com...
"The impact Love One International is making on kids’ lives in Uganda is truly indescribable,” Akins said about the partnership. “We’re helping shape communities and rebuild families through these children. Their bellies are full and more importantly, so are their hearts. I know it is impossible to care for every child’s needs in the world, but we each can love one. This is the idea behind Love+1 and why we created this jewelry line.”
