My name is Zoe. I am 11 years old. My mama and I make jewelry together to raise money to help my little brother, Zion.
Zion has Autism, and Zoe’s Starfish was my idea to raise the money to help buy him an insurance policy for 2014.
Are you wondering about the name Zoe’s Starfish? Let me tell you the story.
When I was very little, my mom told me a story about a child running along the beach and throwing starfish back into the ocean. Someone stopped and asked the child why, and that it was impossible to save all the starfish and wouldn’t matter in the end. The child threw another starfish into the ocean and said “It matters to this one.”
Zion is my starfish. When you buy the bracelets and necklaces we make, the money is used to sustain my family, and to pay medical expenses related to Zion’s care. He currently receives full time ABA therapy as well as being home-schooled, because his behavior is too extreme for public school.
I design my cute jewelry pieces, and my mom checks the clasp and chain for quality. My mom has been making jewelry for 20 years, and we guarantee that if your piece ever breaks,we will repair it for no charge.
We are in the process of adding resources to this site every day, for families just like us. Please support families living with Autism. And let us know how we can support you in return! We are happy to contribute to charity fundraisers and causes.
