Ivory Ella, founded in 2015, donates 10% of their profits to Save the Elephants as well as other organizations, making the word a better place. By selling t-shirts, necklaces and more, Ivory Ella seeks to inspire, guide and motivate with the ideals of an elephant: Empathy, Creativity, Strength and Loyalty.
During the month of February, Ivory Ella will focus on supporting the American Heart Association, raising funds for their Heart Walk teams in Rhode Island and Connecticut.
There is more than one reason to support heart health, but for this company, it’s personal. Matt Fiano, co-founder of Ivory Ella recently had a heart attack. His experience brought awareness to the team at Ivory Ella and the need for education on the risks for heart disease.
“I had no idea that I was in jeopardy to have a heart attack”, said Ivory Ella co-founder Matt Fiano. “I am so grateful to my team of nurses and doctors who helped me through my experience. I never really thought about my risk. Now I focus on what matters and won’t miss any opportunities to spend time with my children, family and friends”.
During the month of February, Ivory Ella will be selling specially designed tee-shirts and jewelry with a portion of the proceeds going to their Heart Walk Team at the Eastern Connecticut Heart Walk in Uncasville, CT and the Greater Westerly Heart Walk in Westerly, RI.
“At Ivory Ella, we want to give back to the community and the world. During American Heart Month in February, our focus is on heart disease and stroke. I know now that heart disease is 80% preventable through life style changes, and the funds we raise will support that education and research”, added Fiano.
