How do you give back to your community?

The Blue Buddha Boutique is committed to making the world a better place, particularly through education.

Here are just a few of the organizations B3 has supported with cash or jewelry donations:

Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum
AIDS/Lifecycle
Albany Park Chamber of Commerce
Anti-Cruelty Society
Chiaravalle Montessori School
Chicago Tap Theatre
Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis
Lillstreet Art Center
Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation
SHAC 7

Additionally, Rebeca volunteers as a contributing editor to Step by Step Wire Jewelry magazine. She also donates many hours to the Chicago Craft Mafia to promote the DIY scene in Chicago and beyond. Finally, she spends a few hours a month talking one-on-one with other chainmaillers and crafters who would like to make a living at their craft.

We also believe it is important to nourish the Earth, so that we can still have communities to give back to! To that extent, we strive to be as green as we can be. Read our list of green practices.
