Keep Collective Fundraiser

YOU are invited to join a fun online KEEP Collective "social FUNdraiser" (like a party, but you get to follow along from the comfort of your home or office.)
KEEP is a new company that JUST launched in January 2015 by the Founders of Stella and Dot.  KEEP is focusing on unique styles created by YOU with their patent pending designer charm system. You design your own one of a kind piece of jewelry (a wearable KEEPsake) in just three simple steps. 
When you're ready to order, you can shop online through Sarah's Unique Social Link:

Lesa will also be available to put together mock ups of your design so you can see before ordering.
