Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 18, 2012
Founded by a military wife, United Grace was created as a bridge to unite, inspire, and celebrate the patriotism and sacrifices of our military community.
This jewelry line currently consists of 3 custom designed collections, each celebrating its own distinct purpose. The Red, White, and Blue Signature Pendant was designed for all who want to share their love and pride for our country. It symbolizes strength, peace, and purity of life.
The Blue Star Grace Collection is inspired by our service members and their families, known as “Blue Star Families”. Their courage, selflessness, and sacrifice for the secure life that the rest of us enjoy were the motivation by which this beautiful and exquisite line was created. They stand strong without complaint, and the desire was to celebrate and honor them.
United Grace’s proudest achievement is the Gold Star Grace Collection. During World War 1, families hung gold stars in their windows to honor those who were killed while serving the nation. In 1928, twenty-five mothers met in Washington, D.C., to establish Gold Star Mothers Inc. These ladies paved the way for our country to recognize the ultimate sacrifice of our fallen. In honoring that tradition, the hope is that the Gold Star Grace Collection will serve as a symbol to our Gold Star Families that their loved ones will never be forgotten.
“It is with great pride that United Grace has partnered with The American Widow Project as a portion of proceeds will be given back to this organization as they continue to work with military widows who have lost their heroes of yesterday, today, and tomorrow,” said Donna Jones, United Grace Co-founder. Just since 2001, over 6500 service members have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan (not including our heroes who lost their lives in non-combat ways). Among half of those service members were married, leaving an estimated 3200 military widows across our country, from the wars alone.

United Grace, at its core, is not about buying, or donating, or contributing. It is about uniting.
