I announced yesterday on my tumblr, facebook and twitter
that I'll be creating a small series of feather earrings dedicated to the oil spill.
This is a huge deal that could change the face of our world... and as tar drifts onto the beaches in Florida, and up toward the Northeastern seaboard of the US, I can't just sit back and do nothing.
When I donated 25% of sales to Haiti earlier this year, the response was amazing!!! I was able to send over $500 to our Haitian brothers and sisters.
I'd like to try it again.
To all who purchase a pair of feathers, 25% of your sale will head down South (i'll disclose donation info tomorrow); you will also receive a free mirrored compact w/ African wax print pattern with your purchase. Hand inlaid and a must-have in your cute summer clutches, ladies!
The purpose is to raise awareness and to assist the families and animals affected by this catastrophe.
There are generations of fisherman families whose way of life is gone forever. Fisherman come from the four corners of the world to live and to work down there. This issue affects the WORLD... not JUST the Gulf.
...since about 89% of my daily life is dedicated to jewelry, it just made sense to tie it in with my other passion.. awareness, culture and activism.
I'll debut new feather earrings everyday, for 5 days; only a few versions of each will be made. I am but 1 person :)
(The 25% will also apply to my other inventory)
Think globally, please. We are 1.
