For something a little different.
At the beginning of June I went to Estes Park on vacation. While I was there a terrible fire broke out near Ft. Collins. And then a few weeks later a fire broke out Waldo (further south by Colorado Springs). My college roommate and her husband live in Colorado Springs and while, luckily, they weren’t forced to evacuate, they have seen the devastating effects of the fire up close and personal.
Rachel decided to do something about it. Well actually she did multiple things including delivering food, toiletries and other necessities to various places providing shelter for those who had to evacuate and/or lost their homes. But then last week she decided there was more she could do.
She joined together with a group of other etsy sellers in donating portions of the proceeds from their sales to local charities. She and other etsy donors created treasury after treasury, and then some more appeared. Vendors include locals, and those at a distance who want to help.
So here’s my plea: if you want to buy yourself something pretty, check out all the shops listed in those treasuries and support a good cause at the same time. And if there’s anything in my shop that has caught your attention (or you would like a custom spin) I’m donating 20% of all the sales in July to the American Red Cross, Pikes Peak Chapter.
