Well Saturday ended with a great success in raising close to $1600 for the Cause Gallery Project-raising money for underprivileged youth and street children in Bali, Indonesia. With this amount of money we can put over 20 children through school for a year and we are now well on our way for getting a center built for these
children. The idea is t0 bring them education and wellness through art and music lessons, surfing and yoga.
Many thanks to all the amazing artists involved. I'm looking forward to working with you all for future events, without your talent this event would have not existed. Also a BIG thank you to Weigh West for donating the space, the talented musicians who offered their time and amazing music and of course to all the companies that contributed to this great event. Many thanks to all.

The Cause Gallery began in 2008 as a way for its founders, Christy Feaver and Nea Hildebolt, to combine their passion for jewelry making and their desire to give back to the community which inspired them. The concept behind The Cause Gallery is to join art, artists, and meaningful causes with the world. A portion of all Cause Gallery sales are going towards building a community center in Bali which will be open for the use of local youth, especially underprivileged youth and street children. The center will be one focused on wellness, with organized activities including yoga, surfing, and music and art lessons.
In order to raise funds for The Cause Gallery community center, Christy and Nea have combined their artistic and spiritual senses to create this stunning line of Blessing Necklaces. These Blessing Necklaces were inspired by Brazilian escapulario, which are worn with a meaningful symbolic pendant both in the front and the back to protect you. They have chosen to work with peaceful and spiritually inspiring symbols, including the lotus flower of rejuvenation, the compassionate Buddha, the protective Ganesha, the cleansing Om, the seven chakras, and the four elements. These symbols are intricately carved into sterling silver pendants and suspended by delicate hand-made silver chains, and are all handcrafted in Bali. All of the necklaces bear the Cause Gallery logo, a rising and setting sun and moon over seven ocean waves representing the seven chakras, all contained in a never-ending circle. Also included is the yogic Cause Gallery mantra, “breathe, laugh, love live”. Each necklace comes in a beautiful handmade paper box and includes a small card explaining The Cause Gallery’s message and also the meanings of the symbols on each necklace, making them excellent and thoughtful gifts or great personal adornments.
We hope you will find our message and our purpose positive, and that you will consider carrying our Cause Gallery Blessing Necklaces. For more information or to order please contact Christy Feaver at Christy@thecausegallery.com or Nea Hildebolt at Nea@thecausegallery.com
Thank you for your time and consideration, and may you be blessed.
Love and light,
Christy Feaver & Nea Hildebolt

Harbour Lounge, Weigh West Resort
On August 8th we will be throwing an event in Tofino, BC to raise money for The Cause Gallery
About the Gallery Project
The Cause Gallery opened in 2008 in Bali, Indonesia, as a way for its founders, Christy Feaver and Nea Hildebolt, to combine their passion for jewelry making and their desire to give back to the community which inspired them and many others in the area. The concept behind The Cause Gallery is to join art, artists with meaningful causes locally and around the world. A portion of all Cause Gallery sales are going towards building a community center in Bali which will be open for the use of local youth but more specifically underprivileged street children in that area. The center will be one focused on wellness, with organized activities including yoga, surfing, music and art lessons but most importantly and prominently, sponsoring children for their years education.
In order to raise funds for The Cause Gallery Community Center our second North American event will be held in Tofino, BC on August 8th from 2pm-midnight. Throughout the day guests will be able to observe and purchase artworks from LOCAL ARTISTS whom are looking to also be connected with this great cause. We will be showcasing photographers, painters, jewelers, musicians and sculpters who have a tie to the ocean and surf community. As the day passes there will be a live musical performance with a silent auction and raffle. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be available and as the night progresses we will have a DJ and dancing to celebrate this event with all involved.
