Many thanks to Lauren for her story of pearls. Thanks for sharing!
“For the past two years, I knew I could count on receiving pearls for Christmas. I fell in love with the earrings my parents bought me the first year. Although they were are special gift, I loved them even more when I found out that a portion of their price was donated to the J.L.Wiley Foundation. My uncle Joe had a special place in my heart and I miss him very much. Those pearls are like a reminder of him and I like the sentimental connection between the earrings and my uncle. Thank you for your generosity, Pearl Girls!”
