NEW YORK, NY – Diamond Envy, an e-commerce store for conflict-free natural colored diamonds, gemstones and fine jewelry, will donate 5% of net proceeds from all sales of yellow diamonds beginning July 4, 2015 through July 4, 2016 to the Wounded Warrior Project. There is no time more fitting to kick off Diamond Envy’s “Giving Back to America’s Bravest” campaign than on America’s Independence Day. The fund is intended to help the 12-year-old charity, established in 2003 in light of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, to assist injured soldiers who fought in Afghanistan and Iraq in their transition back to civilian life.

The inspiration behind Diamond Envy’s concerted effort to give back to veterans in their time of greatest need is another veteran, Marine Jonathan Cochran. The Marine veteran, who toured in Iraq and Afghanistan, had a meticulously planned proposal in place on January 16 when the engagement ring he hid in his car was ultimately stolen. Devastated and at a complete loss, Cochran could only mourn the loss of the ring he had painstakingly saved up to buy for his then-girlfriend, Hillary Addison. Diamond Envy learned of Cochran’s misfortune and stepped in to ensure the proposal would happen by donating a yellow diamond engagement ring to Cochran.

On February 6, the Marine veteran revived his proposal plans and this time it all went off without a hitch. Cochran and Addison are happily engaged while their story provides added incentive for Diamond Envy to make a difference in the work they do daily. “Jonathan and Hillary’s story was so gut-wrenching for all of us. Few are more deserving of having their love story end happily ever after than Jonathan, a man who has given so much of his life in the defense of our great country, and Hillary, the woman who stood by him through the very thick of it,” says Diamond Envy’s Emily Duke. “So now we are looking forward and asking, ‘What can we do as America’s birthday approaches to help the very people who continuously defend the freedom we all enjoy every day?’ There really is no country like America and our military forces prove that over and over.”

This Independence Day, Diamond Envy has chosen Wounded Warrior Project as their charity of choice for the next year because of the direct impact September 11 had on both organizations. The natural colored diamond and gemstone e-tailer is headquartered in New York City, which has seen an unprecedented rebirth of lower Manhattan in the years since the City’s darkest day. September 11 inspired countless Americans to seek positive change for the greater good and Wounded Warrior Project was no exception. The longtime military-focused charity aims to serve veterans and service members who have suffered a physical or mental injury, illness or wound as a result of military service rendered on or after September 11, 2001, along with their families.
