2018 DKMS BLOOD BALL
DKMS brings together blood cancer patients in need of lifesaving transplants with bone marrow donors who can save their lives. When that happens, the outcome is nothing short of a miracle because a patient gets a second chance at life. So far, DKMS registered over 8 million potential donors and matched over 73,000 of them to patients in need. DKMS continues to be the stardust linking donors to patients so that they can have more hope and times with their families and loved ones.
At the Blood Ball, donors and patients in the room were bonded by defiance and desire to fight back against a force that dims the light of humanity. DKMS recognized the bravery and strength of these lifesaving donors and survivors by having them hold up glowing star wands for a moment so the attendees can reflect on how important DKMS’ mission is.

We believe children are the pathways to the future and deserve the opportunities to grow, develop and live a healthy life.All in the same, underserved communities should have the aid and opportunity to improve the quality of life for their population. Gabriel Love’s objective is to give to organizations who’s efforts help our youth and communities in need, improve their lives and their future. Gabriel & Co. wants individuals and communities around the world to feel Love.

Afghan Hands is a non-profit organization that supports disadvantaged and disenfranchised women in Afghanistan to gain independence, education, and livable wages. At our centers in and around Kabul, these women learn to create exquisitely embroidered shawls and scarves. Donations and proceeds from sales of the hand embroidered scarves are used to expand these education centers, which helps Afghan women connect to a wider world.
The centers are places to gather, study, and work. We pay the women to attend classes in the morning and embroider in the afternoon. Without this project, most have no means to educate themselves. Through Afghan Hands, they leave the walls of their compounds and attend seminars on basic human, legal, and religious rights. They prepare for work as free women do elsewhere in the world. This way, no one will ever imprison them in the name of law,MAKE A DONATION

GABRIEL LOVE FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP
The Gabriel Love Foundation is happy to announce the winner of our first Gabriel Love Foundation Scholarship with the Women's Jewelry Association (WJA). We congratulate recipient Magan Byron who is currently attending the Gemological Institute of America's graduate program.
Magan Martin Byron, who earned her BFA in jewelry and metalworking from the University of Georgia, is currently enrolled at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and lives in Athens, Georgia. Magan's passionate submission illustrated her dedication to upholding the high standards that GIA is known for and joining a community of jewelers who are honest, knowledgeable and trustworthy on what jewelry products are sold to consumers.
Magan says, "I've come across a disturbing amount of dishonesty since I began working in this industry. If consumers aren't able to trust what they're buying, they will stop buying altogether. As a future GIA Graduate Gemologist, I will ensure that I am always 100% certain about what I'm buying and what I'm selling, and in turn would uphold the integrity of the jewelry industry within the communities that I work and live in".
If you would like to submit an application for next year's Gabriel Love Foundation Scholarship, go to our page at Gabriel Love Foundation Scholarship to start preparing your submission for 2019. As soon as the application deadlines are announced, send your submission to WJA using the link here.
