Giving Back

Feel good about your purchase knowing a portion of all proceeds is donated to important causes both local in The Florida Keys and worldwide: children, arts, health & the environment.

Anne McKee Artists Fund

The Anne McKee Artists Fund of the Florida Keys Inc, is a not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to provide project based, short term, monetary grants to qualified artists in need of financial assistance, greater public recognition and who have demonstrated individual artistic excellence with ongoing commitment to the area cultural community.

This organization auctions off locally donated artworks once a year. Karen contributes her time each year as one of the art runners in the event and also donates her jewelry to be auctioned off.

One World One Canvas

"To unite other cultures through the language of art". 

One World One Canvas aims to give students the opportunity to experience other cultures while providing art workshops across the world. Our students enjoy the adventure of a life time, with skills and impressions that they will remember forever. They will touch and enhance the lives of children from another nation through the process of creating art!  Karen aspires to travel with the group on one of their future journeys.

Mote Marine & Reef Relief

Mote is dedicated to today’s research for tomorrow’s oceans with an emphasis on world-class research relevant to conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity, healthy habitats and natural resources. With locations right in The Keys, Karen says thank you to Mother Nature by sharing a portion of her proceeds with Mote Marine and also takes part in their yearly Ocean Fest in Key West. 

Monroe County Special Olympics

Monroe County Special Olympics transforms lives through the joy of sport, every day, everywhere. The organization provides year-round sports training and competition to children and adults 8 years of age and older with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Our athletes find joy, confidence and fulfillment – on the playing field and in life. They also inspire people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.

Karen & the ZEN Jewelry will be at the 2014 Key West Paddleboard Classic KICK OFF Party May 2nd, 5-8 at Turtle Kraals in Key West. To raise money she will be donating to the auction and a percent of all sales will go right back to the cause as well.

Surfers for Autism

The Surfers For Autism mission is to unlock the potential of people with developmental delays, support advocacy for autism issues and scientific research. Their focus is to eliminate stigma through public awareness and education and to unite communities through volunteerism.

Each year Karen donates jewelry to raise money to support the work they are doing for the children here in The Florida Keys.
