The phrase "Tikkun Olam," meaning "Repairing the World," is artfully written in Hebrew on this original Sophia & Chloe design. This term denotes our responsibility to improve and repair our earthly surroundings, and to help create a better existence for ourselves and others through acts of kindness, financial support to those in true need, and a commitment to social justice. In keeping with this tradition, Sophia & Chloe will be donating 25% of our website sales of all Tikkun Olam designs to Kiva.
Kiva's mission is to alleviate poverty through microfinance lending. Of the 25% donation, half will go to Kiva's operating expenses, and the other half will go directly to microloans. As the microloans are repaid, they can be easily turned over into subsequent microloans to additional entrepreneurs. Kiva's microloans are a perfect example of how we can all make a difference!

These earrings feature our own Tikkun Olam charm on lever backs. The charm measures 5/8ths of an inch in diameter, and the earrings measure a total of approximately 1 1/4" from the top of the lever back. Available in Sterling Silver or 14K Gold Vermeil.
This piece is part of our Tikkun Olam collection. See the collection.
