Ivanka Trump, daughter of Republican Presidential Nominee, recently purchased an ear-cuff from high end jewelry designer The Lady Grey. What designers Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader did after completing the order and receiving Ivanka’s payment is the stuff of legend.
Martinelli and Le Guyader wrote a thank you note of sorts to Trump, and posted a picture of it on instagram. The letter reads:
“Dear Ivanka, Thank you for your web order! We’re happy to let you know that the proceeds of your sale have been generously donated to the American Immigration Council, the Everytown for Gun Safety Organization, and the Hillary Clinton campaign. We hope you enjoy your new Lady Grey #helixcuff. Best, Sabine and Jill.”
In a note to NY Magazine’s The Cut, they explained their reasoning, saying “The note was included in her package and shipped last week directly from our studio in Brooklyn. While we were flattered to receive an order from Ivanka Trump, our social and political views couldn’t be further from those of the Trump campaign. When we received her order, we instantly felt compelled to take the money and donate it to a few organizations that were more aligned with our ideals.”
