For 2021, we’re excited to announce our partnership with The Pearl Exchange, founded by parents Rose and Johnny in memory of their daughter Pearl.
Based in North Cornwall, the innovative organisation nurtures and encourages young adults to explore creative pursuits, potentially leading to career development and employment in the creative industries.
Wanderlust Life’s Founder, Georgie explains what supporting The Pearl Exchange means to us as a team:
'It was bittersweet learning about the The Pearl Exchange, with the sadness of Pearl's loss sparking the beginnings of something so positive for the wider community in the South West. I felt urged to get involved with the project to support their magic work; providing a creative space & outlet for young adults to connect, thrive and be be supported emotionally, creatively.
Nearly all of my team have experiences of growing up in the South West, not always having access to creative environments or opportunities and you can feel lost and forgotten. TPE shines as a beacon of hope & light, connecting talented young people to industry creatives to nurture, inspire & connect. I'm personally excited to get involved, and so are our the WL team. If our support could help inspire one individual, then our contribution has been successful.
We're kicking off that support with launch of a limited edition necklace and we look forward to visiting their workshops and offer our physical support.'
As part of our support for The Pearl Exchange, we have launched a limited-edition pearl necklace. 10% of the sale proceeds will go towards The Pearl Exchange.
Should you wish to support The Pearl Exchange another way, for the duration of 2021, we are offering the option to make a £1 donation at the checkout.
