A year ago in July 2020 I made a pledge to donate 10% of my monthly sales profits to an organization that is working towards helping to change and protect our world for the betterment of all. It's one small commitment I can make every month.


 

For July the organization I have chosen to receive 10% of this month's sales profits is:

Indigenous Environmental Network



"Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN) is an alliance of Indigenous Peoples whose Shared Mission is to Protect the Sacredness of Earth Mother from contamination & exploitation by Respecting and Adhering to Indigenous Knowledge and Natural Law."

Having just returned from my hometown of Bemidji, MN and the surrounding areas, I saw first hand the destruction of the Line 3 pipeline. This pipeline from Canada snakes it's discriminatory path leading through sacred tribal lands, disrupting vital water ways, and destroying natural habitats. I believe it's extremely important to give our support to the Water Protectors and the groups working against this destruction of our Mother Earth.


For every sale I receive through the month of July I will donate 10% of profits to Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN). Sales are totaled at the end of each month, rounding up to the nearest $5 to make the donation within the first week of the following month.


 

For the month of June I chose Southern Arizona Gender Alliance (SAGA)


"SAGA is a non profit organization that provides support, education, resources, and advocacy for Southern Arizona’s diverse community of trans and gender nonconforming individuals. We envision a world in which all people who are gender fabulous are guaranteed basic rights and personal liberation; where we can all be open, honest, and safe wherever we go."


Thanks to all your purchases throughout the month of June I was able to donate $295 to SAGA and their important mission.


Thank you for joining me in making a difference.



 

Pardon the delay on this month's donation post friends- it's quite a bit late this time but it's here now! Life is busy and weird- we're all doing our best.

Thanks for your patience and support.


Love,

Christina
