Zen & Stone Limited (“Zen & Stone”) is a charitable company recently founded in Taranaki, New Zealand by Zsarina (Rene) Lovett and Sarah Chalmers. Its purpose is to support women and children going through family violence. Zen & Stone sell jewelry and homeware through its Facebook page and website to raise money. It also provides comfort totes (consisting of toothbrush, toothpaste, facial wipes, moisturizer, journal, pen, shampoo, conditioner) to other non-profit organisations (Roderique Hope Emergency Housing Trust, Womens Refuge) that provide refuge to women. Zen & Stone’s long term goal is to build several self-contained cabins, oriented towards a retreat style get-away, where women can come, with any children they may have, be safe, find support, and have time and space to regroup and gain tools and resources to improve their situation.
