My friend, Rebecca of Dropcloth Samplers, and I have teamed up to turn our sadness and anger into positive action. We are co-hosting a series of six instagram auctions to benefit the ACLU, RAICES, and Together Rising featuring over 25 makers, artists, and shops who generously donated items valued at over $1500. Yesterday, 6/26, we launched the first auction and will continue to post one a day until 7/1/18. 100% of the funds raised will go directly to charity. The winning bids will be direct donations to the winner's charity of choice or split between these charities.
So proud of this creative community for coming together and helping make this happen! Rebecca & I whipped this up lightning fast because of the urgent need to help separated families. We've never done this before, but felt deeply inspired to act and having people support and encourage us feels amazing.
That's one of the great things to come out of this. It's been so nice to come together as a creative community working toward a shared goal and I love being able to promote other small business.
