Social Giving


Longue Vue Design for Good - a social non-profit project

“With LV Design for Good, we give back to the community through charities - Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore and HCSA Community Service.

 

Thank you for dropping by to find more about LV Design for Good - a social and non-profit initiative I started with Longue Vue Design in July 2018 to give back to the community and help those in need. 

 

My name is Alice Chevalier, designer, creator and founder of Longue Vue Design and I believe we all carry a responsibility to make the world a better place for everyone. I believe as well that all acts of generosity, big or small, will always make a difference. Together, we can help and support those who are vulnerable.

Thank you for your support from the bottom of my heart.

Alice 

 

This is how LV Design for Good helps

1) 100% Donations of nett jewellery sales revenue, for every piece sold. 

All jewellery and decorative art pieces from Longue Vue Design are designed and hand-made by myself, Alice, designer, creator and founder.

For every single piece sold, 100% of the Nett Sale Revenue will go directly to one of the non-profit Organisation we support in Singapore/South East Asia – please, see below for the full list. 

Most of the pieces are one of a kind and made only once. Sold, 100% of jewellery revenue goes towards one of the charities we support. In the month of August, LV Design for Good could support Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore with the amount of $1215 SGD and HCSA Community Services with $1742 SGD to buy equipment for clients with CP or to help girls at risk go back to school and other psychological treatments.

It means that whenever you purchase a piece from one of the jewellery collections, 100% of the amount you pay for the piece will go for a good cause. You will be contributing to great causes while wearing a beautiful and unique handmade jewelry piece.

I take no cut on the sale revenue of the piece, even for production or salary costs or anything else.

 

It means that:

  • the materials I purchase from the US, Japan, Korea and Germany
  • the time I spend to design and produce each piece entirely by hand
  • the packaging and logistic to send the piece to you

 

Are all offered by me, for free, as support to the NGOs.

 

2) Donations of selected Creative Jewellery Design Workshops sales
