First let me say, my thoughts are with all who have been in and are in the path of the hurricanes. I know many people in not only Texas but Florida, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas and US Virgin Islands. It seems unbelievable to know so many people who have had to evacuate, not only due hurricanes but fires and earthquakes. As I was typing a news story flashed on my phone about the deadly 7.1 magnitude earthquake in Mexico City, that happened today. My heart is heavy. So much happening around the world. This is tremendous. The recovery from all of these will be long and hard.
I have made donations during both Harvey and Irma but I would like to give even more. Therefore, I have decided to donate 40% of profits from all purchases of Tiare Smith Designs/Embrace Your Art workshops and of purchases from my Etsy Shop made now through, Monday, September 25, 2017.
So, if you have been thinking about purchasing a workshop, postcards or a piece of art, now is a GREAT time to do so. You’ll be doing something for yourself and helping others.
Donations will be made to the Center for Disaster Philanthropy. This organization focuses on medium and long term needs. Most giving is done immediately after a disaster. However, needs and recovery are still ongoing months after the disaster, long after most people have forgotten.
Thank you for your time, effort and generosity.
