Award-winning graphic design company The Duty of Design partnered with leading women’s accessories brand Kendra Scott for a brunch benefiting the women of the Atlanta Mission shelter.
In the glittering backdrop of Kendra Scott’s Shops Around Lenox store, about 50 philanthropic jewelry lovers gathered to raise more than $1,000 (and get their hands on some ah-mazing Kendra Scott jewelry!) for women in search of work. The funds they raised provided 100 women with personal Duty’s Success Kits. These kits include printed resumes and cover letters, business cards and cardholders, messenger bags, and MARTA transit cards, to help women nail the next and best job opportunity. This event was in perfect stride with work by The Duty of Design and its founder India Hayes to aid women in entering the workforce on equal ground, regardless of socioeconomic barriers or financial hindrances. The Duty of Design also spearheads a clean water campaign in Nicaragua and career-building workshops in shelters, transitional housing programs, and low-income households in metro Atlanta. – Jessica Wise[nggallery id=27]
