I never thought about donating some of my earnings to a non profit because I thought about how I don't even make enough to be totally self sufficient. I have come to the realization that giving is the one thing that not only makes me feel alive but it makes me feel like I do make a difference in the world even if I may not have a lot of things most people have. It's a tiny step toward a direction that is already making me feel purposeful. I am creating a purpose for myself and hopefully a beginning to a foundation for my daughter to give no matter what your situation is.
I really wanted to give to a local non profit but after quite a bit of research and some devastating news within my family I have decided that 10% of all sales in my shop will go to the American Cancer Society.
Cancer is very prevalent in my family. Both my grandparents on my mom side died of it and many of my mom's family have been fighting it. I can only hope that this can be my way of doing something that will make a difference even if it may be small.
