BAILEY’S TEAM FOR AUTISM
Approximately 1 in 54 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, affecting all ethnic and socioeconomic groups. On average, autism costs families an estimated $60,000 a year through childhood, with the bulk of the costs in special services and lost wages related to increased demands on one or both parents.*
For several years, Vantel Pearls was honored to partner with Bailey’s Team for Autism to increase autism awareness. Our Consultants immediately bonded with Bailey and were determined to maximize sales or our annual Autism Collection in an effort to support this meaningful organization. We encourage you to meet Bailey and learn more about Bailey’s Team by visiting www.baileysteam.org.
On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men. On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.**
Vantel Pearls has worked tirelessly for almost a decade to support New Hope, a Massachusetts domestic violence support center providing countless essential resources for those attempting to escape domestic and sexual violence. To learn more about New Hope’s mission, please visit www.new-hope.org.
SUSAN G. KOMEN
It is estimated that in 2021 there will be 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women in the U.S. and 43,600 patients will lose their battle with the disease.^
Vantel Pearls has been proud to support efforts to eradicate breast cancer through year-round sales of our Pink Leather Wrap and our annual Breast Cancer Collection each October. The longstanding effort has been fiercely supported by our Consultants and Customer over the years. To learn more about Susan G. Komen and the fight to end breast cancer, please visit www.komen.org.
The global Covid-19 pandemic created many opportunities to serve those in need. Vantel Pearls answered the call and created Pearls for a Purpose to help feed doctors, nurses, and other front-line medical staff as they worked around the clock in the early days of the pandemic. Later in 2020, Vantel Pearls partnered with Feeding America to help provide meals for those whose lives had been drastically impacted by the pandemic. However, it doesn’t take a global emergency for people to go hungry. Please visit www.feedingamerica.org to learn how you can help end hunger.
TODAY SHOW TOY DRIVE
The Direct Selling Association and the Today Show partnered each year for the Today Show Toy Drive. Direct Selling companies donate items to help children across the country have a special holiday season. Vantel Pearls was proud to participate in the Toy Drive for many years, donating jewelry items for hundreds of teenage girls since 2015.
