The Story behind the Pin
“It was an honor and privilege to participate in the JWBC 10th year anniversary celebration. The pin design was a collaborative effort with the staff and board of Jacksonville Women’s Business Center. Incorporating the skyline into the pin personalizes it and commemorates the JWBC and the great work that it does. The diversity of the women sitting at the table recognizes the great diversity we see in the women entrepreneurs who are part of the organization.”
Lucinda Yates, Designer
Lucinda Yates, the founder and CEO of Designs by Lucinda was born with the heart and passion of a true entrepreneur. In the early 1980’s due to unforeseen circumstances, Lucinda and her young daughter found themselves homeless.
Lucinda used her creativity and drive to launch a successful line of fashion jewelry. One day she designed a simple pin in the shape of a house; that was the moment Lucinda knew she could help others. The first House Pins would become the perfect fundraiser for a local shelter. The idea behind the pin was to raise money for the homeless, and at the same time, create a greater awareness of homelessness in her community.
Given her natural instinct to be a successful entrepreneur, coupled with her desire to help others, it is no surprise that she founded a company built on helping non-profits. Lucinda’s experience of homelessness would come full circle and a company with a conscience was born… Designs by Lucinda.
