Donate $30 or more to a cause that elevates the lives(life) of people of color and I will send you a FREE pair of Arch earrings. Donations are just a small part of the work that needs to be done, but it is something that we can do right now and it is a good FIRST step.
Please know that in addition to using my hands and resources to raise money for Black Lives, I am also on a journey of education, awareness and action. I encourage you to do the same.
If you’re unsure who to donate to, check out some of the organizations listed below, they are all doing really good things.
- Crafting the Future, www.craftingthefuture.org
“Crafting the Future is a collective of artists concerned about the lack of racial and ethnic diversity in the fields of craft, art, and design. We started this organization because we were tired of feeling helpless. Alone we can not make change, but together we can. Working together and combining our resources, we support the careers of young, underrepresented artists by connecting them to opportunities that will help them thrive.”
- The Loveland Foundation, www.thelovelandfoundation.org
“The Loveland Foundation is the official continuation of this effort to bring opportunity and healing to communities of color, and especially to Black women and girls. Through fellowships, residency programs, listening tours, and more, ultimately we hope to contribute to both the empowerment and the liberation of the communities we serve.”
