What happens when co-workers discover that they their lives are being touched by the same pain and changes at the same time? They do what most people would do, come together, brainstorm and decide to birth a company, right?
Liz Gindraux, Susan Evans and Carol Palmer’s lives have all been affected by Alzheimer’s. Liz’s mother and Susan’s dad both have Alzheimer’s and Carol has her personal connection to the disease through a family friend, and together they created Rivet Revolution in the summer of 2016.
Inspired by the strong and permanent bond of the rivet, Rivet Revolution was formed with three goals in mind; support for caregivers, to fund research, and to empower the networks of families and friends who have been affected by Alzheimer’s and to have a blast in doing so.
The San Francisco Bay based trio then posed these questions to themselves; what would be a great way to bring people together, to get them talking about this disease and how to turn that negative situation into something more positive?
With Carol handling design, Susan outreach and Liz marketing, that something positive came in the form of creating meaningful, stylish, hand-crafted, and affordable bracelets.
Rivet Revolution’s beaded bracelets come in an array of beautiful colors and are designed with a purpose, to arouse conversation, raise awareness, help take away the stigma of this disease and form connections amongst those impacted by Alzheimer’s.
Taking their passion a step further, $10 from every sale supports the fight to end Alzheimer’s through partner charities, Hilarity for Charity and Part the Cloud. These donations help to provide funding in Alzheimer’s research and support for caregivers.
And for a limited time, you can help share in the revolution through their Spread the Love campaign. If you buy 3 bracelets, they will give you a 4th to give to a loved one.
