I Believe the Children are Our Future 💛

Ashley Siebrecht

I can't believe it's already the end of September!  That be-otch, Irma, messed up our plans for this month, but we were very lucky that we were able to get back to work so quickly!

September is a very important month around here; it's Childhood Cancer Awareness month. A cause that is dear to my heart. A few years ago, a sorority sister of mine was supporting her son with all she had while he fought Neuroblastoma with all he had. This was when I started researching childhood cancer and I was shocked and deeply saddened by what I learned.

Here are a few Childhood Cancer stats:

  • Every 36 minutes, a child is diagnosed with cancer in the United States
  • Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under 15
  • This is not a RARE disease - 1 in 330 children (ages 0-19) will be diagnosed with cancer
  • 1 of 5 children diagnosed with cancer will lose their battle to the disease

All that being said, childhood cancer is still severely underfunded by the government with less than 4% of research money allocated by the National Cancer Institute. The funds to keep the doctors and researchers working for the kids is mainly funded by charities. JOM supports the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation whose Sunshine Project is bringing together top doctors and researchers to speed up the development of less toxic and more targeted treatments to increase the survival rate of childhood cancer.

If you're not totally convinced that this is an area that needs our help and attention, just read this excerpt from a woman interviewed by Humans of New York

“It was one of the most despicable things I’ve seen in my career. It was ten years ago. There were about twenty families being treated here whose kids had Neuroblastoma. The survival rate was about ten percent. One of our doctors developed an antibody that he thought was promising. But he’d run out of money. So he called a town hall meeting of sorts. He brought all the families together and told them he needed two million dollars. And they told him: ‘We’ll find it.’ We refer to them now as the Band of Parents. These people were desperate. Many of them were broke. And this burden was being placed on them. It made me sick. But they went back to their communities. They baked cookies, and organized bike rides, and held fundraisers named after their children. And they raised the money. All two million. And it worked. Dr. Cheung’s antibody worked. Today the survival rate is sixty percent. But it was so sad. Because deep in their hearts those parents knew the antibody would not be ready in time to save their child. But they raised the money anyway.” 

Whitney Houston said (technically, sang) it best - I believe the children are our future. These children, if they win their fight, will be the ones to grow up and change the world for the better. We have to fight for them!

Just One More is excited to introduce our Fight Like A Kid bracelet! 100% of the proceeds from this bracelet will be donated to the Pediatric Cancer Foundation to help fund better treatments for our kids! While September is almost over, we will be selling these bracelets year-round to help increase awareness and funding for Childhood Cancer research!

Live for Today. Give for Tomorrow. Accessorize Always!

I am so excited to announce that our SHOP is LIVE! This has been a labor of love for so long and now we are ready to share our passion with the world!

Just One More is a jewelry line born out of love for life, a belief that together we can make tomorrow a better day, and a passion for fashion! Our guiding principles are Live for Today. Give for Tomorrow. Accessorize Always!

Live for Today.

The term Just One More, or as we affectionately refer to it, JOM, was born at girls night. Where we decided that we would go home after Just One More glass of wine. We quickly realized that JOM was applicable to all aspects of life. When you're pushing yourself to run JOM mile while training for a marathon.... When you're telling your hubby you'll leave the baby's bedside after JOM kiss.... When you swear you'll put down the fork after JOM bite of that amazing pasta dish! Catchy, right?

Give for Tomorrow.

We knew that we wanted to donate One% of Just One More purchases to charity, but it was only after drinks with my ex-intern (Hey, Julia!) that we realized we should allow the customer to choose which charity we would donate to on behalf of their purchase. Today, we have 5 charities that we have chosen to support and we feel like there is at least one charity that you can feel connected with.

Additionally, we want to give to YOU! For every 10 bracelets that you activate the donation on, we will send you Just One More bracelet for free! We love our loyal JOMers 😍

Accessorize Always!

Our semi-precious gemstone bracelets are made to mix and match together. We have small stacks that we've curated, but it's up to you to #StackYourStyle as you see fit! All of our bracelets are made domestically so we can react quickly to trends and keep you on top of the fashion game! A very stylish woman has been heard saying, "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror... and put on one more accessory " (Thanks for the quote, Miss Lolly). We couldn't agree more! We love stacking our bracelets 5..6...7... at a time! There's always room for Just.One.More!
