Handmade and Heartfelt December

When I left my Day Job back in August, I set out to follow my heart's passion to create work that inspires others. It has been a blessing to me, and I have had a strong feeling recently to use what I do to help the community around me. So I thought about it long and hard and decided to give a portion of my proceeds for the month of December to a couple charities close to my heart. 

In my hometown of Dallas,  The North Texas Food Bank is a nonprofit organization that provides nutritious meals to hungry North Texans in 13 countiesEvery dollar donated provides three meals! They make such an impact in the community for those fighting for meals, but I'd like to help them make a bigger impact! Feed more meals to those that need it!

In Asheville, NC, the city I will be living in, Brother Wolf Animal Rescue
 is a non-profit organization which operates a limited intake No Kill shelter and foster program tending to the physical and emotional needs of homeless animals. The staff and volunteers are dedicated to finding excellent homes for pets, often specializing in animals who need behavioral training or extensive medical care before being ready for adoption. I had the opportunity to visit the shelter on a recent trip to Asheville and got to walk some of the amazing dogs up for adoption. They just want someone to love them! 

I hope to make a big difference for these worthy causes this December!
Please share this post with others so we can really give them a Merry Christmas! Do a little gift shopping that will give back. For more information about each charity, visit their sites here:
