Dear Rock + Raw Family,
It's in uncertain times that the power of connection, community and ritual are most felt. We know that many of you have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, and we have had to adapt our day to day lives for the better of our customers, our team and our community. This message is not about our best-in-class hygiene and working practices, which goes without saying. Instead, we felt it important to keep you informed about the concrete actions we'll be taking in the coming days and weeks to bring support, calm and inspiration the best way we know how:
1. For you, we will be making available our spiritual tools that have served us so well in times of struggle. Our Founder CEO Lucy will be introducing meditations and rituals that she feels will support you via our Instagram and newsletter. Our hope is that by sharing the things that bring us light - our stones, our spiritual practices and our creations - they will bring you light too.
2. For the world, we will be donating a portion of every sale for the next month to the World Health Organization COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, set up to help all countries prevent, detect and manage the coronavirus - particularly where the needs are the greatest. Find out more about the fund here
3. For our team, we are lucky enough that we've been able to move our operations to home, including all customer dispatch activities - meaning each of your orders will be lovingly shipped to you from the safety of our homes during this time. As you can see from our snapshot above, we've really cherished the opportunity to learn new ways to work together and support one another through our daily video conferences.
4. For ourselves, we aim to be mindful about our intake of media, our exposure to our phones, rest, exercise and above all dive deeper into our spiritual practice. It takes discipline but we genuinely believe that this cosmic pause, if used wisely, can be a source of good.
We're committed to getting through this crisis together, and we will strive to continue bringing you magic even as our team works remotely to serve you: designing and creating new jewellery from our stones that brings us light, so that you can share in that light too.
Stay safe, come together and we'll be in touch soon...
