Meet Annie! A retired career diplomat from the U.S. Department of State, a senior non-resident associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies and a board member of Women for Afghan Women.

Annie loves her custom amethyst pendant necklace! KAPOW!

To create Annie's custom pendant Emily took a loose stone that Annie brought directly from Afghanistan and found a beautiful and imaginative way to use it, which honors its origins.

Annie is on the Board and an advocate of Women for Afghan Women. Here is the list of agencies that Annie recommends supporting:

Church World Service (CWS)Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC)Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM)Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS)International Rescue Committee (IRC)US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI)Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS)United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)World Relief Corporation (WR)
