Handmade with Purpose: Hurricane Relief

Thanksgiving scripture print from

I'm so excited to share a new project I'm a part of!
I've been wanting to start giving back with the money I make from my shop, but I was never quite sure how or where I wanted to give.
When Lindsay over at Pen & Paint put out the word that she was organizing Handmade with Purpose to come together & raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief, I was sure I wanted to join her.
I can't even imagine what the victims of this storm are going through & it breaks my heart that as I'm making Christmas lists & planning Thanksgiving treats, there are so many left homeless or cleaning up from the destruction.

That's why from now until December 17 (1 week before Christmas & Bow+Arrow's last shipping day) I'll be donating 50% of sales from my 8x10 Psalm 51:15 print to American Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Relief efforts.
I felt like I didn't have much to offer alone, but there are lots of other amazing shops donating too & I was inspired to join with my tiny little shop when Lindsay reminded us of this beautiful Mother Teresa quote:

“We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love.”
-Mother Teresa

So as you shop for your loved ones this holiday season, would you consider choosing a shop that will help you give to the relief efforts with your purchases?
