A stylish accessory that helps those in need? That’s exactly what the Giving Keys necklaces are all about.

Created by actress and singer Caitlin Crosby, the Giving Keys necklaces are inscribed with simple messages. When you purchase one you are helping support shelters and transitional homes by creating jobs for the homeless.

The charitable endeavor started as a side project. Crosby had been selling engraved keys to her audiences to inspire hope, but everything changed when she met a young homeless couple on Hollywood Boulevard holding a sign that read “ugly, broke and hungry.” They bonded and Crosby decided to partner with the couple and employ people trying to transition out of homelessness.

Each key necklace is inscribed with a message of love and hope (choose from 16 motivational words or choose your own custom word). Crosby encourages people to ‘pay it forward’ and eventually give their necklace to someone in need of support or inspiration.

Don’t feel like wearing a key around your neck? The company also creates pay-it-forward bracelets, rings and iPhone cases.

The classic Giving Keys necklaces retail for $35.00-$55.00 each and are available at Elle Hardware in Toronto, select boutiques across the country or online at: www.thegivingkeys.com.
