As some of you may know, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving is Giving Tuesday. It's a day where we can all kick off our holiday season with a bit of giving to our community. In deciding on what to do for Giving Tuesday I experienced a bit of kairos. (If you aren't familiar with that word, check out Bill Slider's guest post, here!) I was feeling a bit behind, I hadn't decided on a charity on top of working through the mountain of other holiday prep there is to do before Small Business Saturday, when a chance conversation with a friend introduced me to Space of Her Own.
As we talked, I learned about their program that empowers girls in the community through art, carpentry, and creative one-to-one mentoring. On their website, I learned that they use art as a catalyst to teach girls to value creativity and encourage everyone to see the arts as a means of expression at which all can succeed. It all just fell into place.
Empowered women using the arts and creativity to empower the next generation of powerful women? I'm in!
With that said, I am over the moon excited to announce that KD is partnering with Space of Her Own for Giving Tuesday 2017! For every sale on November 28th, KD is donating 10% to SOHO's programs.
If you're not looking to make a purchase but still want to make a difference, I highly recommend you check out their website and donate directly, volunteer your time, or just send them a kind message about the amazing work that they do. I know that I wouldn't be where I am today without the strong female role models in my life who've taught me the value of creativity and hard work, and I am so excited to be able to pay even a fraction of that forward.
Happy Giving Tuesday!
