My Body My Choice Line to Raise Money for Planned Parenthood
Shocked. Outraged. Angry. Always leaning into “What can I do”? What can I do to contribute to the cause? Well this is what I do. We will have these in Sterling or Brass to raise money for Planned Parenthood as well as other agencies as things unfold. I’m relieved to live in Vermont and once again so disappointed in our country. How can this be 2022? How can we still be fighting for basic rights? How can this be the thing happening after over 2 years of pandemic life? We should be so much further along as a society, as humanity. We've raise $3000 so far. 🖤
Dissent Line to Raise Money for the ACLU
Soon after Ruth Bader Ginsburg's passing, I created this design based on her famous Dissent Collar. We've raised $10346 so far for the ACLU through the sail of these pieces. These are currently available in my shop in Sterling or brass, in 2 sizes, as pendants or earrings.
A portion of every sale goes to Onetreeplanted.org, I've donated $2750 over the past 2 years.
In addition, over the past 2 years I've held fundraising efforts through the sale of my jewelry to raise $500 to BIPOC Urban Farm and Wholeness Center in Winooski •$95 to Advancing Justice AAJC • $200 to @junipercollectivellc mural • $200 to @PrideCenterVT• $100 to Black Lives Matter of Greater Burlington @blmofgb • $100 to @CafeMamaJuanaVT • $150 to @VTRacialJusticeAlliance • $600 @rebelwomxn in Vermont • $1100 to @blackvisionscollective • $100 to @unicorn.riot
Patched Vermont to Raise Money for the VT Irene Flood Relief Fund
On Aug 28th, 2011 our small state got pummeled by hurricane Irene. The devastation that it caused is overwhelming. The only comfort in the wake of the storm is how the Vermont community has come together. I created a piece to generate money for the relief effort. I didn't want to just create a generic design though, I yearned to make something meaningful. Then it came to me, my signature "patch" design would work so well here. Vermont was broken, torn up but it's being patched together, healed. The beauty is in the binding. I raised $3100 for the Vermont Irene Flood Relief Fund.
