boops celebrates its birthday - and donates to the Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe
by Sonja Zuckerstätter·
On 22.11.2022 boops celebrates its second birthday with a fundraising campaign that is particularly important to us: A portion of our sales until the end of the year will go to the Österreichische Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe (ÖKKH - Austrian Children's Cancer Aid) this year. With this, we are also focusing on a somewhat different Black Friday - because with our "Golden Friday" every purchase supports a good and important cause.
Why we want to donate at Christmas
Since boops was founded two years ago, a lot has changed at our company. But something has remained the same: The basic idea behind boops of our founder Rana Aktas to offer jewelry made of 100% real gold at fair prices and conditions. This also goes hand in hand with the social idea, which is particularly important to Rana. Last year we donated to the Salzburger Schutzunterkünfte for "Golden Friday". And would like to continue the tradition this year to do good during the Christmas season: with a donation to the Österreichische Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe.
What the Österreichische Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe does
Around 350 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer in Austria every year. A diagnosis that usually changes the lives of the young people affected and their families from one day to the next. About 85% of young cancer patients survive their disease. However, about 2 to 3 of those affected subsequently have to live with the long-term effetcs of the illness and its treatment. In order to provide support during the difficult time after diagnosis and also in the case of possible long-term consequences, the Österreichische Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe has been working for affected families for over 30 years. Throughout Austria, it offers both unbureaucratic direct support and target group-oriented aftercare. The ÖKKH is a non-profit, independent and non-political association - which is depending on donations. This is exactly what we would like to contribute to with our "Golden Friday" campaign this year.
Donate to the ÖKKH together with boops
With every purchase from November 22, 2022 until the end of the year, you donate to the Österreichische Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe. Or rather: We all donate together - because the collected amount will be handed over after our "Golden Friday" campaign. You can discover and buy our boops jewelry made of 100% real gold in our online store. Or you can visit our Pop Up Store in the center of Vienna: Until the end of December you can discover boops jewelry at Seilergasse 19 and try it out. You might even meet our founder Rana, who is often present in the boops store herself. For your donation to the ÖKKH it makes no difference whether you buy online or on site - a part of the proceeds will go to the good cause either way.
Our boops jewelry: What's new
Whether you've known boops since 2020 or are new in the fam, there's always something new to discover. It all started with our classic hoops - since boops is short for "basic hoops". By now we also have gold chains and gold rings in our jewelry collection. And this currently includes the special "my roots collection", which is inspired by Rana's roots. All jewelry pieces - from the simple classy hoops to the eye-catching herringbone chain II - are 100% forged from real gold. Unless, like our 7 diamonds ring, they are also set with genuine diamonds. We focus on fair prices for our boops to give young women access to real gold jewelry. You can read more about this here.
So feel free to look around in our online store or visit us in the boops Pop Up Store in Seilergasse 19, 1010 Vienna: Because this way we can do a lot of good with our joint donation to the Österreichische Kinder-Krebs-Hilfe!
