The Business: Pamela Norton-Shelpuk works with refugees coming to the United States through her organization, Liberti. Her “<1% Collection” of jewelry “seeks to raise awareness for the less than one percent of refugees worldwide who are fortunate enough to escape the hardships of refugee camps, and for the 99 percent who remain behind,” according to her campaign. This particular collection is available at a discount through her crowdfunding campaign.
The Money: Norton-Shelpuk has already achieved her goal of raising $20,000, and another month remains on her campaign. All money raised will be put toward Liberti’s apprenticeship training program, which gives participating refugees marketable skills.
