The Melonhead Foundation

The Melonhead/Joolz Connection:
I met Deb Leone several years ago at a community group that I was already involved in. Over the last few years I have had the pleasure of  assisting her with the foundation that she started in memory of her daughter Melanie (The Melonhead Foundation). I have provided color printings of Melonhead related materials, donated jewelry for Silent Auctions, door prizes for events, and my daughter and I have volunteered our time for this cause.  However, I knew I wanted to do more. While opening my website, an idea started growing (much like a watermelon seed).  I wanted to add a page to this website, devoted to jewelry with a watermelon theme.  A portion of the proceeds from sales of that page would go to the Melonhead Foundation to help in the important work that they do.  I have been buying some watermelon themed lampwork beads (only artisan made!) over the last year or so and have been blessed with gifts of watermelon beads from my friends.  I hope that these donations of beads will continue to grow as I will continue to make them into special “Joolz.”
