Origami Owl has garnered plenty of attention following the company’s rapid growth, and the leadership team is seizing the opportunity to shine a spotlight on the cause of child abuse and bullying prevention. The customized jewelry seller has partnered with Childhelp, an organization that has spent more than half a century advocating for abused and neglected children.
Childhelp recognized Origami Owl’s support during its recent Childhelp Day of Hope luncheon, where the organization’s Co-Founder Sara O’Meara presented the National Day of Hope Corporate Award to Origami Owl Founder Bella Weems.
A donation from Origami Owl will go toward Childhelp’s “Speak Up Be Safe” prevention education program. The company’s support will place the program in the hands of millions of students through a curriculum expansion and the launch of a virtual campus to teach facilitators nationwide. Origami Owl’s sponsorship will enable Childhelp to expand its current first- to sixth-grade curriculum to include all grade levels.
The initiative will also focus on Origami Owl’s home state of Arizona. In an effort to propel nationwide adoption of the program, the company is funding a large-scale push to introduce “Speak Up Be Safe” to over 100,000 Arizona students.
“We are so thrilled to partner with Origami Owl for this important project, not just in Arizona but across the United States,” O’Meara said in a statement. “There is an epidemic of abuse going on in this country, and we aim to halt it in its tracks with the Childhelp Speak Up Be Safe curriculum. We hope this comprehensive prevention education curriculum can help put us out of business, and we are so grateful for Origami Owl’s great heart in supporting this cause.”
