In case you missed it at the start of the year, one of the things I’ve decided to do with my shops this year is donate a portion of all sales to charities or causes that I support.
June is host to World Blood Donor Day, World Refugee Day, and the official start of hurricane season. Accordingly, I have chosen the American Red Cross to be this month’s beneficiary. They respond to around 70,000 disasters each year in the US alone, and supply over 40% of America’s lifesaving blood supply through their blood drives. Internationally, they are one the world’s largest humanitarian networks for disaster relief and building safer communities. Any organization’s whose core mission is to prevent and alleviate human suffering (no matter country, race, etc.) is a cause I can get behind. If you agree, you can support the cause by a direct donation on the their site, or by shopping in either of my shops (screen printing or digital) this month.
At the beginning of this month $10 was donated to the May shop charity – thank you!
