  • Teach Your Children Well

    There’s no age limit to doing good in the world! A special Allumonde ring for kids will be available beginning this June, and its intended to encourage children to give back to the community in a way that is meaningful to them. With six brightly colored acrylic rings displayed on a card with the questions “Wear?” “Or share?” on opposite sides, the rings are designed so that kids can share with friends as a reminder that there are less fortunate children in the world who need remembering. The Kids’ Acrylic Allumonde ring will be sold for $25 USD, and like the adult ring, 19% of the proceeds will go to a non-profit of the purchaser’s (or their kid’s!) choosing and 2% will benefit UNESCO DREAM Centers. This is a great opportunity to talk to kids about what the global community really means!

    The Kid's Acrylic set of six rings contains three size 3 rings (in yellow, pink and green – shown here) and three size 5 rings (in black, clear and blue rings) see our Support section for more photos and information.
