Thomas Rhett's wife, Lauren Akins, is selling fine jewelry to raise money for Love One International -- a group that raises money for orphans in Uganda.
She says, "The impact Love One International is making on kids’ lives in Uganda is truly indescribable. We’re helping shape communities and rebuild families through these children. Their bellies are full, and more importantly, so are their hearts. I know it is impossible to care for every child’s needs in the world, but we each can love one. This is the idea behind Love One and why we created this jewelry line.”
The couple has always been very supportive of orphans in Uganda, with even adopting their daughter Willa Gray from there. Lauren made the announcement through an instagram post, where she said, "Y’all!! I teamed up with @ladybirdjewelry in Nashville and we designed some really beautiful necklaces that are going to benefit the children in Uganda through @loveoneint 🙌🏼 We worked really hard to make sure these necklaces are of the highest quality, so each one is made to order and will be about 7-10 weeks for production & delivery. I really wanted to offer something for everyone so they’re 14k yellow gold, rose gold and white gold (with or without diamonds), sterling silver, as well as a donate button 😍 every little bit helps these sweeties and I cannot thank y’all enough for your support ALWAYS. Really love and appreciate you guys, I know the kids do too."
The pieces in the Lauren Akins X Lady Bird collection start at $99. See the full line at LaurenAkins.com.
