Amy and Allyssa, aka the Locket Sisters, initially founded a popular boutique photography studio where they designed products for clients to enjoy the portraits they made for them. They eventually curated frame collections, albums, canvas art, heirloom glass boxes, fine art prints, mobile apps and slip-in books. And then Amy told Allyssa — who loves to make jewelry — that she should make lockets. So she did. The sisters have also committed themselves to making the world a better place. They donate a percentage of proceeds to a different charity each month, ranging from the fight against dyslexia to the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation and now Meow Meow Foundation. However, the sisters have developed The Roxie Belle Locket heart—which can be customized with any photos—specifically for our foundation from which proceeds will be continuously donated to support our initiatives.

Under the Nile is committed to providing the highest quality baby clothes and products in a sustainable and socially responsible manner, while demonstrating authenticity and transparency in its business practices. Founder Janice Masoud’s philosophy is to enrich the planet and the lives of everyone involved with the business, from “cotton to customer”. Under the Nile gives to empower women and communities in need, education and ethical labor. Janice also found it in her very big heart to donate a big bundle of her famous Scrappy Cats—which Roxie renamed Meow Meow—to us as we kick off our Meow Meow Foundation. In fact, Janice’s vision played a significant role in Roxie’s life and will continue to do so in her memory.
Founded on the principles of social justice and inclusion, POCS is internationally known for its pioneering accomplishments in the areas of anti-bias education, emergent curriculum, and peaceful conflict resolution. The school was also a place where a little 3-year-old girl named Roxie was introduced to a classroom, classmates and teachers for the very first time. The POCS community also became an integral, soulful support network that helped our family manage emotional challenges during Roxie’s early health issues and now in the wake of her untimely and preventable death.
San Rafael Elementary School is a dual immersion Spanish and English language program that develops bi-cognitive students that meet high academic standards and are models for positive cross-cultural attitudes and behavior. Working together with a highly-engaged community of students, staff and family, San Rafael creates lifelong learners who possess an expanded worldview and are prepared to be successful in a global society. SRE was also Roxie’s beloved, beloved, beloved public elementary school. She was only able to experience one year (kindergarten), but it often felt like a lifetime of educational and cultural magnificence.
