An Army of Love for Children in Need
Qaraqosh Cross Necklace
Reload Love started with a mission to convey God’s love amidst terrorism by fighting back and showing tenderness to the children who have been victimized or impacted by acts of terrorism. Reload Love rallies people from all over the world to take action, however small, so that these children can be strengthened in their hearts and empowered with hope.
Reload Love believes babies and bullets don’t mix, so they melt down spent bullet casings and upcycle them into beautiful pieces of jewelry that help raise awareness and funds for projects that help them. The Qaraqosh Cross included in your Faithbox tells the story of the people living in Qaraqosh, Iraq; a city that was once home to the country’s largest Christian community. The proceeds from each necklace purchased go towards the construction and opening of playgrounds for children. Experts say that one of the key steps in trauma recovery is re-establishing normalcy, which is why playgrounds are built to provide something normal and fundamental to a child’s well-being.
In just 4 ½ years, with proceeds from charitable giving and jewelry sales, Reload Love has built 30 playgrounds in war-torn areas and provided shoes, beds, emergency relief supplies, school supplies, counselling services, and much more to children around the world who’ve been impacted by terrorism.
