Hurricane Sandy Relief
Like most New Jersians I spent my summers at Jersey Shore or as we say here "down the shore." Day trips to the beach, vacations in Wildwood -- when I was a little kid, I lost a front tooth eating corn-on-the-cob on the Seaside boardwalk...which probably doesn't exist any more. In my teens & twenties I spent entire summers in Sea Isle City -- living, working, and doing what kids do best -- hanging out with my friends. My first vacation with my husband was in Sea Isle.
Now my shore is changed. Different. Gone. Utter devastation. I feel I need to do something to help rebuild the shore I've always loved.
I am very proud to announce that 10% of all proceeds of Cherishables sales in the months of November & December will be donated to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief. This includes all online (Etsy, Goodsmiths, ArtFire) sales as well as local craft fair and in-person sales for both ready-to-ship and custom orders.
I hope you'll stop by either online, or at one of my craft shows, and do a little holiday shopping for your friends and family, for teachers, stocking stuffers -- for yourself!
I've already raised $10, so please check back often, as I will update the total weekly -- after each craft fair.
Together we can make a difference!
