5% of profits collected in all jewellery categories are donated to the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre.
HOW IT STARTED:
The LYD studio is located within a few blocks of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, a neighbourhood known nationally for its social challenges. We believe it is our duty to give back to those we share this space with.
"We are all a series of events away from someone else's life."
This belief is at the core of Leah Yard Designs, and in 2021 it sparked a charitable mission. 5% of all profits made in the jewellery collection are donated to the DEWC [Downtown Eastside Women's Centre]. We chose this foundation as we are aware of the disproportionate risks women face in the DTES.
Thank-you for helping us give back.
