Now Your Purchase Provides Comfort to Kids!
Happy first day of September. I’m REALLY excited about implementing some new things for my Etsy store this month!
Today I’m going to let you in on the most exciting thing-- I’ve just been bursting to tell you! I’ve been working hard to develop my autumn color palette, and thinking about what charitable organizations I want to support in upcoming months.
It happened last week: I had just spent two days preparing several new lace motifs for my store. I knew I wanted to use the golden yellow ochre portion of my fall palette as a charity piece. But I had no idea what organization or cause I was going to support. As I was checking out various research and support groups, things suddenly began to fall into place. Here are the details of my first charity event!
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and the associated color is gold. It’s a perfect fit for my new earrings! So during September when you purchase any yellow ochre item from my store, 10% of the purchase price will be donated to charity.
Which charity you ask?
I chose to support a group called Quilts For Kids. It is a volunteer organization that creates quilts for sick children who are stuck in sterile, harsh hospitals. I was very touched by their story and photos because when I was 15, I had an emergency surgery to remove a large abdominal tumor. While the tumor was benign and I only spent a few days in the hospital, I vividly remember how comforting it was when my mom brought me a colorful quilt she had just recently completed. I am very excited to be able to share that kind of tangible reassurance with other hurting young people. Won’t you join me?
Be watching for an influx of yellow ochre jewelry in my store and consider supporting this very special cause!
