We’ve been hearing a lot about Ivanka Trump lately because her dad happens to be running for president.
Now, the progeny of the controversial GOP nominee is making waves on social media because of a recent purchase.
After Ivanka placed an order for the Helix Ear Cuff from indie jewelry brand Lady Grey, the brand’s cofounders Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader decided to take the opportunity to send a message while fulfilling the order.
They posted what they sent Ivanka on Instagram:
The handwritten note to Ivanka reads as follows:
Thank you so much for your web order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety Organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign. We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey [Helix Ear Cuff].
Jill + Sabine
“While we were flattered to receive an order from Ivanka Trump, our social and political views couldn’t be further from those of the Trump campaign,” a spokeswoman for Lady Grey told The Huffington Post.
“When we received her order, we instantly felt compelled to take the money and donate it to a few organizations that were more aligned with our ideals ― Everytown for Gun Safety, The American Immigration Council, and The Hillary Clinton Campaign.”
The brand went on to say that they “strongly feel that everyone and anyone can make a difference through actively supporting the causes that they believe in, no matter how big or small.” They hope the letter enforces that feeling and inspires others to do the same.
Politically, Ivanka’s past speaking engagements and appearances overwhelmingly lean more Democratic. She was also registered as an independent in April, preventing her from voting for her dad in the New York primary.
The Huffington Post has reached out to Ms. Trump about the note and will update accordingly with her response.
Can’t wait to see if she rocks the cuff or not ...
