Eric Austin is the owner of Chains and Bracelets and our newest “Kindred Krafter” who creates amazing DOMO bracelets and keychains.
What is DOMO, you say? Here’s what Eric had to say:
“We all love some nice jewelry, and we all love to help others.
So, why not buy some jewelry and help others, at the same time!
Whenever you purchase a DOMObeads item, you not only enhance your style with the unique product but you are given the opportunity to choose a charity that a portion of your purchase goes to. It’s so easy to forget about the people who really need our help, so with DOMObeads, you don’t have to worry about that. With the click of a button, you purchase a stylish addition to your life AND donate part of what you spent to the charity of your choice.
But, it doesn’t stop there.
With the sale of every other item, ALL of the profits go towards my mom and my grandmother.
Without them, I would not be where I am today.
They’ve helped me getting my first car, and getting me into college.
So, I just owe everything to them, and that’s what I’m doing with this store.
So, when buying an item, you’re getting something, and giving even more.”
How great is this guy??? So sweet, so giving, and so talented. Here’s just a few of the charities he donates to: Invisible Children, Charity Water, American Red Cross, World Vision, and Susan G. Komen Foundation.
His reason for donating? “I donate because it’s the right thing to do. It puts a good feeling inside of you knowing that you’ve donated your money that you’ve earned to people that are less fortunate.”
