It is worthwhile to continue our work together. To give to others when it feels like we can't. We can.
This month, our studio donated 1% of our May 2021 sales to the Native Women's Shelter of Montreal/Foyer Pour Femmes. The goal of the native women's shelter is to provide a safe environment where women can begin to rebuild their lives. They offer support and frontline services to First Nations, Inuit and Métis (Aboriginal) women and children to promote their empowerment and independence.
Our donation to this movement is not a ton, but it's still enough to be proud of. We will continue to donate through 2021 on a monthly basis. With this practice, we are reminded to contribute to our circle and that our circle extends beyond the immediate. We are committed to keeping an open mind and forever learning what it means to actually accept our differences. We believe that we all need each other in this wild world. Being able to sell our work to make a living is nothing we take for granted, so here we do our best to pay it forward.
