Mantra Changes Lives
Charity Collaborations by Mantra Jewellery
At Mantra, we are committed to helping to make a positive change in the
world, bringing more joy, kindness, support and empowerment to people who
need it the most.
The ‘Mantra Changes Lives’ initiative works with charities and
not-for-profit organisations to create jewellery to raise funds, show support,
and build awareness for important causes. We want to help people and causes
that we believe in – and we want to do it in a way that isn’t heavy-handed or
Over the years, we have worked with many different charities on short- and longer-term collaborations. Here is a video about our past work:
We partner with charities that we believe are working hard to make the
world a better place. We create a mantra
that links to their cause, and then design a beautiful piece of jewellery to
bring it to life.
We donate 25% of the selling price of that necklace to the charity.
Amongst others, we have created necklaces in aid of:
NHS Charities Together
'I hold onto hope, I trust in tomorrow'
The Hope Necklace raises funds for NHS Charities Together. This is the perfect gift to demonstrate support for a loved one going through a difficult time, or simply to wish someone positivity and strength. Its forward-looking message of optimism provides comfort and reassurance.

‘I am strong enough to stand alone, but wise enough to ask for help’.
MIND provides support and help to anyone suffering a mental health issue, and campaigns on their behalf.
They encourage people suffering from mental health issues to speak out and ask for help, believing that “no one should have to face a mental health problem alone”.
This necklace reminded people that they are stronger than they realise, but also encouraged them to talk about their feelings and seek help.

Q&A with Katie Quick - Mind Charity
‘In my words, thoughts and actions, I choose kindness’.
Bullying UK (part of Family Lives, the national family support charity) provides support to anyone affected by bullying, via a helpline and online advice, and encourages those affected by bullying to seek support.
Overcoming bullying can be one of the hardest things to do, and at Mantra, we wanted to help erase bullying by spreading positive messages.
Tallulah Lawson-Cresswell, Fundraising Officer for Family Lives, explained, “We are excited and proud to be working with Mantra Jewellery. This beautiful necklace will help to raise awareness of the issue, as well as spreading positivity and kindness. I think together we can make a real difference to people who are struggling with bullying.”

Care International UK
‘I am an
empowered woman who empowers others’.
Care International is an amazing charity that supports women,
girls and their communities to achieve lasting change for a better future. Care
puts women and girls at the centre, because they know we can’t overcome poverty
until all people have equal rights and opportunities.

We wrote this mantra
as a rallying call and statement of support, for women across the globe. Now is
the time to call for gender equality throughout the world, as families, friends, colleagues and whole communities think,
act and become gender inclusive.

'You're someone special. Someone strong. Someone loved'.
We created this necklace originally with Breast Cancer Haven, a national charity that supported women through their breast cancer treatment, providing a tailored package of emotional, physical and practical support. With six welcoming centres across the UK and an expanding network of other services, the charity was there to provide women with the support that treatment alone can't.
Sadly, Breast Cancer had to close its doors after lockdown. As the charity was no longer operating, we decided to raise funds for breast cancer awareness charity, CoppaFeel!, instead, a wonderful charity which raises awareness amongst young people, encouraging them to check their breasts regularly.
The Mantra disc necklace features a heart with a pink cubic zirconia stone set beneath, with the a Breast Cancer ribbon swirl incorporated into the heart design. The piece represents the inspirational mantra, ‘You’re someone special. Someone strong. Someone loved’.
For someone who is going through breast cancer, or who has experienced it in any way - this mantra acted as a powerful reminder of the love that surrounds them, and the strength they have as an individual. For someone who has supported a loved one as they go through treatment, this sent a message of love and gratitude.

Tress for Cities
'Go outside. Breathe. Let nature restore you.'
Trees for Cities is the only UK charity working at a national and international scale to improve lives by creating greener cities. They get stuck in with dedicated volunteers to cultivate lasting change in neighbourhoods – whether it’s revitalising forgotten spaces, creating healthier environments, or growing food with kids.
The reason we love this charity so much is because we are huge believers in the importance and power of trees and green spaces in our urban environments.
An inspiring gift for someone who needed a gentle reminder to slow down, breathe more deeply, and take time to appreciate what’s around them; a calming gift for someone who is busy or stressed; or an uplifting reminder to yourself to get outside more often and enjoy the fresh air.
'Find your melody, sing your song.'
One partnership was with ModernMuse, a charity dedicated to smashing barriers for young women in education, to open their eyes and their ambitions to all the diverse opportunities in the world of work.
The purpose behind Modern Muse is to open every young girl’s eyes to the breadth of opportunity out there, and introduce her to role models who demonstrate that achieving success in the workplace is within reach of everyone, including her.
It is about informing, inspiring, connecting and empowering every girl, to help her embark on her career journey in the belief that she can achieve anything she sets her mind to.

CALM - Campaign Against Living Miserably
'I am strong, not silent' | 'Stay calm'
Mantra Jewellery was honoured to work with the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), who are leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45.
Two new men’s bracelets were released, in Leather and Stainless Steel, pre-engraved with positive mantras. 25% of the selling price of each goes directly to support CALM’s work.
CALM provides a hotline for men 365 days a year to break the silence and reach out for help, as well as running campaigns to change attitudes towards mental health struggles for men. They spread their message in universities, pubs, clubs and prisons across the country – so that people feel empowered to share their experiences and get the help they need before they reach the point of crisis.
CALM also campaigns with media partners, brands and ambassadors to spread awareness of suicide and its devastating impact, and challenge male stereotypes to encourage positive behavioural change and help-seeking behaviour.

Women for Women International
'We are all sisters, by birth or by bond’.
Women for Women International (UK Registered Charity No. 1115109) supports women who live in some of the world’s most dangerous places.
We created a fund-raising necklace in our ‘Mantra Changes Lives’ initiative, to support this wonderful charity.
The necklace had the powerful word ‘Sisterhood’ above our signature lotus, with the heart-warming and supportive mantra, ‘We are all sisters, by birth or by bond’. This mantra acted as a recognition of our shared humanity, and a message of support and solidarity with women the world over. This mantra celebrated women’s similarities, rather than our differences.

‘I trust my intuition. I call upon my inner strength’
Our Third Eye Chakra Necklace was created in collaboration with PANDAS Foundation, providers of pre- and post-natal mental health support, as part of our Mantra Changes Lives charity initiative.
We were approached to help PANDAS by one of our most loyal customers, Claire Gradwell. Having herself experienced post-natal depression, Claire is an ambassador for PANDAS, and asked me if we would consider them as a charity partner. They do great work to support women’s maternal mental health, with online and telephone support available provided by trained volunteers.
The mantra was ‘I trust my intuition. I call upon my inner strength’, and is intended as a message to women everywhere. We know that we have a deep reservoir of inner strength that has got us this far in life, and we know that we will continue to thrive, if we follow our instincts and do what feels right. Deep inside us is a well of knowledge that we can instinctively access, if we listen closely.

'I stand with others to make a better world'
We created the ‘Together’ Necklace as there is a positive desire amongst young people today to make the world a better place. This necklace is a reminder for yourself and others, to do what we can to the world better for everyone.
We supported Think Equal with this necklace - they bring a missing ‘third dimension’ to education - Social and Emotional Learning as a core component of Early Years education, alongside numeracy and literacy. Their vision, to create a new generation of equal-thinkers, supported our mantra perfectly.
