HALF UNITED was founded in 2009 by brother/sister duo, Christian and Carmin Black, with only $200 and a passion to change the lives of people in need. For every HALF UNITED product that you purchase, YOU provide 7 meals for a child in need. To date, HALF UNITED's customers have provided over 200,000 meals for children in need in the USA, Fiji, Cambodia, Liberia, Nepal and Haiti!
"We were sitting in my living room, holding these recycled casings when it clicked", stated HU co-founder, Carmin Black. "These casings will be a representation of our fight against hunger! Every time a customer purchases a 'Fighting Hunger' necklace they are peacefully fighting hunger all over the world."
Not long after HU was founded they were searching for a symbol of our customer's FIGHT against global hunger. Having little money to work with, the HU team looked for something that could be recycled that would present a powerful message. That's when a friend donated a handful of recycled bullet casings, suggesting that they may be able to use them in their jewelry design.
