100% of the profits from the sale of the Hayr Mer POSY Wire bracelet will be donated to the Armenian Apostolic Church for the restoration and preservation of the Etchmiadzin Cathedral and Khor Virap Monastery and Church Complex.
- BONDED TO BENEFIT -
Metal Alchemist is also launching an ongoing initiative to support the Armenian community indefinitely through Alchemy for Armenia called Bonded to Benefit: Project Armenia. This ongoing initiative features the Mt. Ararat Bonded cuffs and rings. 20% of Metal Alchemist’s profits from this initiative will also go toward the restoration and preservation of Etchmiadzin and Khor Virap, and continued donations will be made thereafter to support the Armenian community.
Considered to be the oldest church in the world, Etchmiadzin was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001 and remains one of the most visited sites in Armenia. The cathedral is now at a critical point and is in need of restoration and preservation.
The Khor Virap Monastery and Church Complex, which is constructed near Mount Ararat and is considered to be the birthplace of Christianity in Armenia. As the Patron Saint of Armenia, St. Gregory the "Illuminator” is revered as a universal luminary who formally established the Armenian Apostolic Church. He was cruelly imprisoned within an underground pit at Khor Virap , but he persevered because of his faith, and spread Christianity throughout Armenia.
