Up-and-Coming Jewelry Designer Kasia Piechocka’s GIVEAWAY for a Great CAUSE!


Polish jeweler Kasia Piechocka auspiciously launched her self-titled luxury jewelry brand just one short year ago.  

Although the brand is still growing, the graduate of London’s Central Saint Martins is eager to make a positive difference in the world, as well as settle the score that those in the fashion industry don’t just jump on a charity bandwagon because it is en vogue. 

“I wanted to do something good for society. Instead of liking a Facebook page, guys and girls can enter the giveaway by donating (as much or as little as they want) to the London-based children’s charity Barnardos.  

Once we have managed to collectively raise £450 ($726 US Dollars), I’ll be giving away £150 ($195 US Dollars) worth of Kasia Piechocka Jewellery!

This message of togetherness and giving something back is something I really want to ingrain into my brand’s ethos and I really want this to be an example of how fashion brands (no matter how small!) can be a force for good. 

I, for one, disagree with this blanket assumption that the art and fashion world “ride” the charity and eco boat because it is cool.  I would like to think that people who enter this donation-giveaway are making a statement in the defense of those in my industry who truly want to give something back.”

To make a donation and become eligible for the giveaway make sure to go to Kasia’s page at JustGiving.com.  Also, be sure to read Kasia's "story" to see details about how the giveaway winner is contacted.
