Welcome to @ and thank you for following me! This year I made a commitment to making and selling art, a dream I have had that I've often talked myself out of while I worked through personal doubt. As I prepared for my first sales this year I was shifting through the motions (and emotions) of being back home in Vermont and rebuilding community. Something about living here inspires a giving spirit - we help our neighbors and our communities without expecting reward for our good deeds. Vermonters help one another, and this has inspired me to explore how I can help my communities here in VT, in Chicago, and beyond. 30% of ALL sales from each shop update will benefit a different project or organization. ⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️⚪️
Stay tuned for Vermont based fundraising - I'm launching @ with holiday sales to benefit my peer, colleague and friend Sabrina Alicea @ a super powered yogi and Harvard educated Latina who took her learning back home to Chicago to share her knowledge and love of literature. Sabrina believes "literature can provide students with the necessary tools to become active, engaged, critical thinkers." Sabrina's class library needs funding so she can support her curriculum, and I want to help her as much as I can. I've also posted the link to her classrooms fundraising page if you want to donate to her directly.
