With all that senseless killings & violence that has occurred throughout the years, more specifically over the past few days in Chicago. We felt it was time that EVERYONE, put down the guns, hold your head up & Rock Your Drop!
Rock Your Drop is actually represented by a pendant created by Cecilia Rodhe, the co-founder of Chicago Bulls’ center, Joakim Noah, “Noah’s Arc Foundation”. As we previously wrote about Noah’s Arc Foundation, “the mission is to help kids develop their full self. With a combination basketball and arts program, the foundation offers the opportunity to gain a sense of self and channel themselves into productive activities. Noah runs the foundation with his mother.”
As an important figure & role model within Chicago, Joakim felt is was his responsible to let the youth know that violence isn’t the answer. This past summer, Joakim & his foundation created a #ChicagoStandUp movement which goal is to help curb the violence going on in Chicago. With the assistance of Cecilia, Joakim has created yet another powerful non-violence movement, The Drop of Consciousness. This particular movement is to provide strength to those who have lost loved ones to senseless crimes with the notion of possibly retaliating which will only make things worse, or even just need strength to get through the pain, Rock Your Drop!
The idea of the Rock Your Drop pendant comes from a sculpture created by Cecilia that was designed in the shape of a tear drop. The significance of the tear drop is to recognize the pain of losing someone to violence. The importance of the metal & solid feel of the pendant symbolizes the strength & committment to positive change.
