In the midst of months of social distancing and isolation due to COVID-19, three sisters in east Orlando decided to venture into the business of giving back. Enter the young entrepreneurs running S3 Creationz. It started with their mother’s suggestion to get creative with the free time the sisters now had at home. They decided to design and sell bracelets using Instagram as their marketplace.
“We stayed home all summer and, according to our mom, we were watching too much TV,” says S1, the oldest Creationz sister who is currently in 9th grade. In an effort to remain anonymous, all three sisters go by a special “S” pseudonym that corresponds to their age order — hence the S3 name!
“One day, S2 (currently in 7th grade) came up with the idea of producing personalized bracelets,” says S1. “We immediately bought supplies and created a few designs and started our very first Instagram page.”
To date, S3 Creations has donated $465 to Pet Alliance through a portion of their product sales. This amazing accomplishment was the heart of their business model from the start. “Our business was created as a means to give back to our community. We knew right away we wanted to pick an organization that is local to us within Orlando, and an organization we and our community can relate to,” says S1.
“I am so glad we can do what we do and donate a portion of our proceeds back to an organization that is valued so highly in our community. It has been amazing hearing stories from our customers who come to pick up their orders and tell us how they adopted from Pet Alliance or they volunteered there, etc.”
With such big hearts and creative minds, Pet Alliance is thrilled to know these young entrepreneurs. We root for their success as emerging business owners and can’t wait to see what the future holds. You can view and request their handmade products by visiting the S3 Creationz instagram page @s3.creationz.

When our shelter medical team examined the 11-month-old puppy, the first thing they noticed was the smell. Nemo was surrendered to the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando with a splint on his left leg to help heal a small fracture that clearly hadn’t been changed in several weeks. With an infection visibly seeping through the gauze,
