Vigor is this year's Helping Hand feature piece and is dedicated to the Maskrosbarn charity. The small happy elephant signifies confidence and hope; characteristics that all children should embody. When you are older you should not just be wiser, but kinder. So, share your pearls of wisdom and acts of kindness with those who are still growing, for it is in the smallest hearts that the biggest dreams lie. In Sweden, nearly half a million children have at least one parent with an addiction, a mental illness or abusive tendencies. These children have an increased risk of inheriting their parents' tendencies, leaving school without qualifications and being exposed to bullying. Often, these children take on the blame for their parents' conditions. The children's rights organisation Maskrosbarn has since 2005 fought to improve the living conditions of children who grow up in these difficult situations. With every purchase of the VIGOR necklace - which is available in both child and adult sizes - proceeds of SEK 50 per piece of jewellery are donated to the Maskrosbarn charity. Thanks to your support more children with challenging home lives will receive the help they need.
