In the wake of a tragedy
like this,

we’re reminded of all we
have to be grateful for…

When was the last time you consciously felt grateful to be alive?

Despite whatever challenges life is throwing at you, how often do you reflect on all the good things in your life, and feel truly and passionately thankful?
It’s in the wake of tragedies like the typhoon that smashed its way through the Philippines that we are reminded of how precious our lives are.

That’s why, every night before I sleep I close my eyes and say Thank You for all the blessings I have in my life – I start with gratitude for Life itself, then I say thanks for good health, for my family, for the fact that we live in safety and security, for the wealth and abundance we enjoy and for the lessons we receive that inspire us to grow.

It doesn’t matter if what I have is less than I truly need or want. Regardless, I’m grateful for what I have, knowing that I could have been worse off.
And in case you’re wondering, it’s also irrelevant who the  “You” is I’m saying thanks to. You could call it God, Jesus, the Creator, the Universe, or even your self. All that’s important is the gratitude!

So, in the face of the pain and suffering being experienced by 4.5 million people in the Philippines at the moment, it’s driven home to us, who are safe in our own homes, how much we have to be grateful for.
And the natural reaction, as far as we’re concerned, is

Consequently, Blue Turtles is donating $500 to Oxfam, who have teams on the ground in the Philippines, providing immediate relief to survivors who don’t have access to shelter, sanitaion or clean water (Oxfam reports that the town of Tacloban in Leyte province has been 100% destroyed).

Additionally, we will donate all profits from the sale of this Poetic Pieces pendant during the month of November to Oxfam (while stocks last).

This pendant is P-4S-19. It’s purpose is to express gratitude…for life itself.
It’s made from sterling silver and is strung on natural black silk, finished with a sterling silver clasp.

If you purchase P-4S-19 this month, we’ll donate all the profit it generates for us to Oxfam’s Typhoon Haiyan appeal.

To purchase, or to enquire about prices, contact your local stockist, who will order your pendant for you.

"Buying from Blue Turtles is always a pleasure - opening all those drawers at the Gift Fair to see the hidden treasures inside – because you know you’ll only see the good stuff. Each stone is chosen aesthetically, set with heavy silver and finished beautifully... you don’t get bumpy edges, join marks that haven’t been polished out, left over tarnished sections or stones hanging out the back of a setting. The attention to detail is obvious from the moment you look at any piece. It’s well priced, especially for the quality of the stones and the amount of silver used. You get prompt and efficient service, always with a smile!"
