MONTREAL, CANADA, NOVEMBER 19, 2014 Well-known for her community involvement, Caroline Néron is proud to announce a new partnership with ONE DROPTM. A portion of the proceeds of sales of her popular Stella SSH jewelry set comprised of a necklace and earrings will be given to the organization to support its mission of safe water for all. The set’s small Swarovski® crystal droplets perfectly represent drops of water, ONE DROP’s symbol. ONE DROP develops innovative access to water and sanitation projects which promote self-reliance in communities located in Central America, India and West Africa.
The jewelry is sold in CAROLINE NÉRON boutiques, on carolineneron.com and in the touring show boutiques of Cirque du Soleil, one of One Drop’s founding partners. The necklace retails at $65 and the earrings at $55.
“The notion of paying it forward has always been at the core of my belief system. Today, through my growing business, I am lucky enough to be in a position to give back in a significant way. One Drop is a strong partner, having achieved impressive life-altering results and I am proud to join forces with this organization,” said Caroline Néron. She added: “It is important that a company and its employees give back to the community. It fosters team spirit and can also serve as an efficient employee engagement tool.”
Catherine B. Bachand , CEO of One Drop said “The generosity of Caroline Neron will allow us to transform the lives of millions of women in developing countries by offering them safe water to drink and for agriculture. By purchasing and wearing the Stella SSH jewelry women will be directly helping other women throughout the world. We are privileged and proud to be associated with Caroline Neron.”
The importance of safe water
It is imperative to remind ourselves of the vital nature of safe water. Many are unaware that over 748 million human beings lack access to this precious resource. It is hard to imagine getting up in the morning without being able to turn on the water and access safe water. Having drinking water is essential. However, water has other critical uses. One Drop works to show disadvantaged communities how to protect their water sources and cultivate their gardens so they will be better able to take care of their families and increase their quality of life.
