DWC Creative Collections for a Cause
I started to think about things that make me the most proud about sharing my art and the more meaningful aspects of why I’m creating it. I’ve always wanted to find a way to give back to my community and organizations that benefit the environment. To do that, I came up with Collections for a Cause to incorporate giving back by donating a percentage of sales to specific charitable organizations. All upcoming large collections are announced in advance with information about the charitable organization. All applicable listings will include information about what a portion of the sales will benefit.
Past Collections for a Cause:
Bee Collection (3/13/19): Bees are incredibly important to our ecosystem and food supply. These hard working little insects are responsible for the pollination of 30% of the worlds crops and helping 90% of plants to thrive! It’s not new news that climate change and pesticide use is effecting bee populations. Thanks to your purchase, I will be donating a portion of the sales to Heifer International (heifer.org). This awesome organization donates honeybee hives and train beekeeping to families in need.
“A Heifer honeybee gift donation includes a bee package, hive, box and training in beekeeping techniques. When you buy bees for a family in need, your gift:
Boosts income through sales of honey, wax and pollen
Stimulates growth of the family’s crops through pollination
Sometimes it's the smallest gifts that make the largest impact. Healthy beehives can double fruit and vegetable yields of small farms. Let your honeybee donation turn a family's struggle into a lifetime of opportunity”
Oceans Collection (5/26/19): The Coral Restoration Foundation (www.coralrestoration.org), the world's largest non-profit marine-conservation organization dedicated to restoring coral reefs to a healthy state, in Florida and globally. Coral Restoration Foundation works to support the reefs’ natural recovery processes through the large-scale cultivation, outplanting, and monitoring of genetically diverse, reef-building corals.
Turquoise Love Collection (2/5/22): 15% of every sale donated to wildfire relief fund to help those affected by the devastating Marshall Fire in Superior and Louisville, Colorado. (commfound.org)
Be sure to look out for upcoming Collections for a Cause and let me know if you have a special cause that I can honor in a future collection!
