Kalevala Jewelry has a special relationship with charity, as the company was initially established as the result of a charity project. It was founded in the 1930s by a group of socially aware, active women who wanted to sell jewelry in order to raise funds to set up a statue in honor of the Finnish woman. However, the proceeds were eventually spent to help victims of war: special Mothers’ Homes were established as resting places for mothers of large families, funds were donated to children's homes, and temporary homes were provided for families who had been evacuated from the ceded Karelia region.
The strong tradition of charity has continued over the years in the form of supporting various social causes. At the moment, we have pieces supporting the following charities: The Finnish Pink Ribbon, Save the Children Finland, the Suurella Sydämellä (“with a big heart”) volunteer project, Pekka Hyysalo Fightback, and the Federation of Mother and Child Homes and Shelters.
