Jordan Guildford’s bio

Jordan Guildford is a small-town Nova Scotian girl who moved to Calgary in 2014.

After initiating a successful Jewelry Drive to give gifts on Christmas morning to survivors of domestic abuse, she made a critical observation that would change everything for her. The public wanted to mobilize for survivors but with the recession already devastating the city, they desperately wanted to use their skills, time, and energy to make a change.

This led to Jordan creating a national charity called Gems for Gems focused on bringing an end to the cycle of domestic abuse in collaboration with the public.

Gems for Gems has gifted over 18,000 gifts on Christmas morning across the country, assisted thousands of survivors with essential skills (financial literacy, preventative self-defense, resilience, and psychological coping skills) and empowerment, built a scholarship program for survivors, and, launched an ambassador program comprised of men and women all unified under the same mission.

The Gems for Gems Ambassador Program spans across Canada and the U.S. as well as has three celebrity ambassadors within the team.

Most recently, Jordan and her team at Gems for Gems have launched Hope's Cradle.

This initiative is a partnership with Fire Departments to provide a safe surrender location for mothers who feel there is no other alternative to ensure the safety of their babies.

Jordan Guildford Consulting has also been created to give organizations, and start-ups, the ‘leg up’ and creative injection needed to mobilize the community around them.

With a focus on impact, Jordan’s innovative instincts never cease to seek progressive solutions to tenacious problems. Collaboration is at the very center of each successful project Jordan has pursued and it continues to be a non-negotiable asset to enlisting her support.

“Everyone can be a meaningful part of the change by uniting and understanding we are always stronger together”. -Jordan Guildford
