Ivanka Trump, daughter of the Republican nominee for the US presidential elections Donald Trump, might have regretted this recent jewellery purchase. Why? Because the brand owners 'generously donated' the money they got from the purchase to 'Hillary Clinton campaign'.
The Lady Grey brand, from where she purchased an ear cuff, sent her a 'thanks-but-no-thanks' card which read as follows: "Dear Ivanka, Thank you so much 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 #helixearcuff. Best, Sabine and Jill."
While the brand owners – Jill Martinelli and Sabine Le Guyader – told The Cut, NewYork Magazine's fashion website, that they were flattered to receive an order from Ivanka Trump, their 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 organisations that were more aligned with our ideals," Jill Martinelli was quoted as saying.
