Lauren Akins announced today the launch of Lauren Akins X Ladybird, a custom fine jewelry line that supports the children of Uganda through Love One International. With a longtime passion for philanthropy, Akins has devoted countless hours to helping others through volunteering, events and charitable initiatives. Love One International grew from the work of 147 Million Orphans, where Lauren initially fell in love with the people of Uganda, and plans to continue their efforts and restorative community work.

"The impact Love One International is making on kids’ lives in Uganda is truly indescribable,” Akins shared. "We’re helping shape communities and rebuild families through these children. Their bellies are full and more importantly, so are their hearts. I know it is impossible to care for every child’s needs in the world, but we each can love one. This is the idea behind Love+1 and why we created this jewelry line.”

In collaboration with Ladybird designer Emily Dee, pieces from Lauren Akins X Ladybird are made to order, with seven necklace options currently available: Sterling Silver ($99), 14K Gold pieces in White Gold, Rose Gold and Yellow Gold for $449 and each Gold variation with diamonds for $749. All necklaces include three delicate charms, LOVE, + and 1, honoring the spirit behind Love One International.
