Our Story

828 Movement is a non-profit organization where 100% of the product proceeds go directly towards supporting education in underfunded schools across the USA. 

The organization started when two friends came together in May 2017 with the hopes of making a small impact. It expanded from there to honor the President, Margot Sandy’s recently passed Grandmother who was a humanitarian, college graduate, teacher, community leader and advocate for change.

Margot who is an Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, Product Development Engineer with 10+ years experience in industry and has been traveling the world while running an entrepreneurial enterprise hopes to raise awareness on some of the persistent unequal issues in our school systems, provides examples of career paths for students and recognize the efforts of our teachers.

We plan to continue to spread positive images of people past and present that are doing great things in the community (through our social media accounts), offer a way for everyone to participate in the fight for education equality by introducing stylish new jewelry items to proudly wear and hopefully make a difference with the school donations and upcoming college scholarships from the proceeds of our USA made products. 

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” ~Helen Keller
