Florence Scovel Jewelry is one of After Breast Cancers greatest supporters! Back in July, Florence Scovel Jewelry raised and donated $7500 to After Breast Cancer, and this month they are donating fabulous items for our Pink Diamond Gala gift bags! Thank you Florence Scovel Jewelry for all your support. You are helping us make a difference one woman, one survivor, at a time! We love working with Florence Scovel Jewerly – here’s a chance to get to know them a little bit better through an interview with Nirav of Florence Scovel Jewelry….
- Tell us a bit about your team and your business.
We are a fantastic team of around 25 individuals, all of who come from diverse backgrounds, educations and cultures. Everyone is so hard working. We are very excited to be one of the fastest growing e-commerce companies out there. We started about a year and a half ago and have already brought in over 22 million dollars in revenue. We are lucky to have such a fantastic team; we all feel like we are a part of the business.
- We noticed you had some accessories and jewelry that specifically had a breast cancer theme. How did that come about?
Cancer is a cause that is very dear to us, since we had a family member who was affected by it. When October came about, we wanted to do our part and raise funds. We don’t make money from our breast cancer jewelry collection; instead the proceeds go to charity.
- How did you hear about After Breast Cancer?
We knew that we wanted to give back to the community. We started by researching charities in Toronto that needed support. Eventually we came across After Breast Cancer and we instantly really liked the charity. We raise money globally, and wanted to make sure that the money we raised went to a charity that really needed it, and was also ready to work with the funds.
We’ve loved working with After Breast Cancer. As a charity, you are very responsive and it is clear that After Breast Cancer really cares about the people. Compared to other charities, After Breast Cancer not only wants to make a difference, but is going the extra mile to be able to do so. You are really into the cause and love what you do. And that’s why we love and picked After Breast Cancer.
- We noticed on your website that there was a charity element. How did your business get involved with giving back to the community?
We always wanted to be socially involved, but in the beginning we first needed to become stable as a business. God has been so generous to us, we wanted to do the same for others. We are fortunate that our company has had tremendous growth, the kind of growth many other companies are not able to do. Of course we want to maintain it, but now we can give back as well.
- As a business is it important for you to help and give back to the community?
Giving back starts off as being something personal, but of course it mixes with business. Since we are a family owned business, personal and business goes hand in hand when it comes to giving back to the community. Even before we had our business, we did our best to give back. We helped create a school in India as my father grew up in a poor area and got his education thanks to donations and the generosity of others. Recently we made a donation to the company that helped him get this education 50 years ago in India. Our objective is to have a positive social impact and so After Breast Cancer is just one more reason for us to give back to the community.
