AVE in Action



AVE is excited to announce a partnership with Little Words Project® to create a custom “LIVE BETTER” bracelet, where 25% of net profits will be donated to Move For Hunger. The AVE bracelet will be available for a limited time only from February 4, 2022 through March 4, 2022.

Little Words Project® is more than just a bracelet company; their mission is to encourage kindness, self-love, and to pay it forward. Little Words Project® bracelets are produced with fine-cut stones and crystals and interwoven with inspirational words. The unique custom AVE bracelet features a matte lava stone with the message “LIVE BETTER.”

Founding member of Little Words Project® Mariah Grippo has been an AVE Somerset resident for five years. “Living here at AVE has given me all the tools to have this successful business that I do,” says Grippo. “The most amazing part is the AVE team. They embody all that our bracelets stand for. It just makes so much sense for Little Words Project® and AVE to come together on a bracelet that both spreads kindness and gives back.”

Mariah was introduced to Taylor Melchior, Social Media and Online Reputation Specialist with AVE, who was already a customer of Little Words Project®. When Taylor expressed interest in the company to Brooke Tropeano, General Manager of AVE Somerset, she mentioned that Mariah is an AVE resident herself. After pitching the idea for AVE and Little Words Project® to collaborate, the partnership between the two was born.

We are also excited to extend another collaboration with our charitable partner, Move For Hunger, where they will receive 25% of net proceeds from sales of the “LIVE BETTER” bracelets. AVE and Move For Hunger formed a partnership seven years ago to reduce food insecurity in local communities. The nonprofit aims to create a sustainable way for the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger, which is also an integral part of AVE’s mission in the flexible living space.

"We were thrilled to hear about the collaboration between AVE and Little Words Project®. Their support means the world to us, and we're grateful to have such thoughtful partners" says Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger.

Both AVE and Little Words Project® are people-focused companies rooted in entrepreneurship and giving back. “We have such caring and talented residents at AVE,” says Lea Anne Welsh, COO of Korman Communities and president of the AVE brand. “What Mariah and her teammates are doing at Little Words Project® is truly inspirational. We are so excited to team up with them this February to offer a one-of-a-kind bracelet inspired by our mission to deliver flexible, carefree living, as well as the opportunity to support our long-time partner Move For Hunger and their mission to reduce food insecurity in our communities.”
