This year is wrapping up, and I'm guessing most of you are taking a minute to think about what worked, what didn't and what you want to make of 2016. Samesies over here! By the way, standing in line at Trader Joes during lunchtime is great way to get in a moment of reflection. It's also a great way to impulse buy jelly beans but we're talking about reflection here.
Change. 2015 was a year of change for me - and I'm happy to report - some growth and a little progress! Part of this wrap up I'm doing is diving into an excel spreadsheet my math whiz of a baby sister created for me and tallying up what I get to donate at the end of the month! The shop sells lots of products that do good work (fair trade cooperatives, underemployed women, musicians in New Orleans) but I also committed to donating 10% of my profits to the Ecological Playground at Clara Barton School and Unicef in 2015. With your support in shopping for good and those beautiful PLAY bracelets we have actual some green in the ledger for charity :)
The PLAY bracelets will continue until we have a lush playground for our kids to explore and beyond, and In Love We Trust Designs is already at work on a NEW bracelet coming soon for a cause I can't wait to tell you about. But, it's time to plan our 10% charities for 2016, and I'm wondering what you think? Comment or message me with suggestions and causes you care about. I'll put together a little something we can all vote on.
I'm ending 2015 feeling so grateful for this life. I hope your year was as filled with love and lessons and chances to grow.
