Jenny Norman’s Massika ouroboros ring, made of 14-karat gold and featuring a bi-color Madagascar sapphire and diamond eyes, is one of the pieces donated in A Thousand Facet’s fundraising campaign for the Amazon.
New York—Though the high-speed news cycle has mostly moved on from the burning Amazon rainforest, the fires are still raging and remain a problem.

Looking to help in her own way, one blogger is celebrating a social media milestone by helping to raise money.

The woman behind A Thousand Facets, who highlights the work of designers from around the world, hit 100,000 followers on Instagram and decided to mark the occasion by launching a fundraiser and giveaway in partnership with the Mothers of Invention podcast, who helped her pick the benefitting organization and is promoting the event.

They’ve collaborated with 14 artists, who each donated a piece from their collection for the cause, ranging from loose stones to finished earrings, rings and necklaces.

For every dollar a donor contributes, she or he will receive an entry to win the piece of their choice, which is noted upon donation.

All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to Amazon Watch, a nonprofit organization that works to protect the Amazon and its indigenous people.

Winners will be chosen at random on Monday, Sept. 16.
