"The beginnings of DANNIJO are rooted in philanthropy," Danielle Snyder, co-founder of jewelry line DANNIJO, said.
Alongside her sister Jodie, the DANNIJO girls have been notable influencers in helping promote philanthropic causes through fashion.
Earlier this year, they collaborated with Falling Whistles and launched an exclusive collection of necklaces with the symbolic whistle for peace to support war-affected people in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Following this collaboration, the sisters teamed up with Indego Africa, an organization that employs women artisans in Rwanda by selling their handicrafts and returning 100% of the profits towards improving their business, literacy, and computer programs.
Every jewelry purchase made on the DANNIJO website comes in a colorful printed pouch designed by a craftswoman from Indego Africa along with her photo and signature.
"Part of our aesthetics is bohemian and all of the fabrics are one-of-a-kind and colorful," Danielle explained.
The Snyder sisters are at the forefront of their generation, inspiring young women to work hard and rise to the top, but also to continuously give back to society.
"Us, being women entrepreneurs, inspiring, and employing women around the world who don't have the same opportunities that we have here is something that we are very passionate about," Jodie said. "The collaboration is already so successful that we're working with Indego about bringing other products into our line and there's more to come."
Anything with DANNIJO's seal of approval is a must-have in our books!
