Austin-based popular jewelry designer Kendra Scott is celebrating National Nonprofit Day on August 17th with more than 100 Kendra Gives Backing events, including three in the Austin area.
“Giving back is at the core of what we do at Kendra Scott, and it’s important that we celebrate National Day of Nonprofits with 108 Kendra Gives Back events to help local organizations in the communities where we have Kendra Scott businesses give back, ”says Scott.
Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, some Kendra Scott store fronts are temporarily closed or have limited capacity. To this end, the jewelry maven has focused on hosting virtual events. Those hosting a Kendra Gives Virtual Back Event will be given custom code to share with their community. 20 percent of all revenue from purchases made with the code directly supports the charity of your choice.
Starting Monday, August 17, Kendra Gives Back Codes will be redeemable in any of the ways that you can purchase Kendra Scott: online, through the brand’s roadside delivery program, and in select stores that have socially distanced shopping dates available .
