About Mission Made Jewelry: Ross Marino wanted to start a small business on eBay to teach his two daughters about business as well as giving back to those in need. His idea quickly grew into Mission Made Jewelry. Although Ross had little experience with retail or fashion, his passion for business and philanthropy ensured that Mission Made Jewelry quickly became successful. Ross’s idea for helping eliminate poverty was to not only donate money to deserving organizations, but to help provide jobs for women who are stuck in poverty. By creating jobs for these women, they are able to support themselves and pull themselves out of poverty, rather than waiting on others to donate money to help them.
In addition to providing artisans in vulnerable areas with jobs, we wanted to take our mission one step farther and donate to organizations who want to help transform and restore broken and troubled areas. Some of these organization include Tiny Hands International, who help prevent human trafficking in third world countries, and SHE Rescue Home, who help girls in Cambodia get an education, medical care, and a safe place to live.
We are already so encouraged and inspired by the support that Mission Made Jewelry has been shown, and cannot wait to see it continue to grow with your help! We hope that you will reach out to us with any comments or questions that you may have and that you are excited to keep in touch with us through our new blog.

A sweet friend recently gave me a life-changing book. Have you ever had a book shake you at the core and make you reconsider your entire life? This was one of those. In Visions of Vocation by Steven Garber he looks at something I have stumbled with for some time now, is it possible to know the world and still love the world?
Over and over he asks, “knowing what I know, what will I do?”.
The story of Beljoy. Told by, the founder of Beljoy, Abby Clevenger.
My husband's family has had relationships in Haiti for over 40 years. He grew up going to Haiti and fell in love with the people. When he came back from a trip in 2014, he felt a strong burden to create opportunities for the Haitian people by providing them jobs and helping them become self sustaining.
