Promise Dreams Children Charity

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of our customers for your continued support

Here at Alyssa Smith Jewellery, not only do we create sparkly miniature masterpieces, help our lovely customers with any questions you may have AND make you laugh with all our crazy antics and drama filled mishaps; we also try to give back to those in need.
In 2013, Alyssa partnered up with motorsports and gadget show presenter, Suzi Perry in a mission to conquer the motorsports industry (and possibly the world) with their amazingly unique motorsports themed designs. Like nothing else on the market, Smith and Perry wanted to bring the world of motorsports to your daily lives in the form of miniature pieces you could collect and love. When thinking of new creations to add to such a collection; from the tiny waved flag necklace to the race track charms, they also thought of a way that they could help others at the same time.

As some of you may know, Suzi is a patron of a charity in Wolverhampton (her home town!) called Promise Dreams. This is a charity which helps support terminally and seriously ill children and their families through granting them any wishes they may have; from trips out with their families, to medical treatment and even things that will help make their lives more comfortable; and Promise Dreams go above and beyond for those in need.

When discussing the designs back when the collection was first dreamed up, Alyssa and Suzi decided that select proceeds from our Smith and Perry motorsport collection would be donated straight to Promise Dreams to help them continue their support for these children. Throughout the years, we have seen how your purchases for the pieces in our ever-expanding motorsports collection, and our donations have helped so many children and their families.  To keep you all up to date as often as we can, we have created a page on our website that you can find here – which has many different stories about how the money has helped along with just how much money has been raised. You can also follow our new Charity Tuesday initiative on social media, where we will be bringing you the latest updates from Promise Dreams, and ways you too can get involved to help out (if you want!) And remember, that select proceeds from our motorsports jewellery is donated to Promise Dreams, so you’re helping them without even really knowing it, every time you buy a new piece from this collection
One story that really pulled at our heart-strings was about Frank, who is 5 years old and is living with a life-limiting neuro-degenerative illness for which there is no curative treatment. Due to this he is losing his strength and skills meaning he requires more and more support and care. The money raised would help him get a specialist bath that gives him the opportunity to experience something that relaxes his muscles. Currently, Frank is only able to enjoy a massage bath when on a respite stay at his local hospice, so this would make a huge difference to his life.
We are so pleased that our donations are going to such a caring cause and are helping young children live their lives as comfortably and happily as they can.

Promise Dreams isn’t the only charity we have helped raise money for though. Since launching the business in 2010, we have also helped other charities from Save the Children on Christmas Jumper day to Children in Need. We helped raise money by giving a set amount from each order placed on our website on a particular day and donating the funds straight to these charities.
We do our best to help local charities and initiatives as often as possible, and donate everything from gift vouchers, one off pieces, and smaller ‘prizes’ for raffles. Our motorbike necklace raised over £700 for one charity most recently, which is very incredible indeed! These charities include places like our local Garden House Hospice, and other smaller charities too.
We are amazed and grateful for your support for both us and the charities over the years and we can’t wait to raise more money and awareness for them for years to come.
To this date, we have raised just under £14,000 for Promise Dreams- and without your purchases for our motorsports jewellery, this would never have been possible! Keep an eye out over the coming months for even more new releases to our motorsports collections, we’ve got lots of surprises up our sleeves for you!
Lots of love and sparkles,
Team Alyssa x
