I am so excited! In just one hour (9PM EST) our third Curator's Event for Joss and Main goes live! I have thoroughly enjoyed our last two, but I have to say this one is my favorite! There are three different Swedish clocks that are going to be available! Keep in mind the one style we had last time sold out in the first minute of the sale. If you haven't already, make sure to sign up so you don't miss out!
Here is a peek from their look book on the Joss and Main website:
I also wanted to share with you where our February donation will be going. This month we will be giving a portion of each sale to a wonderful new cause my cousin, Tamara and her boyfriend, Jeff started several months ago. I have been watching as she's been posting and have been amazed and so proud of what they are doing and this month we wanted to help out a little. Because this is something they just started four months ago I don't have a link to share but asked Tamara to tell a little bit about what it is they are doing:
Jeff and I started a monthly community outreach drive to feed the homeless in St. Louis. (In 2011, the largest numeric increase in families using emergency shelters was in St. Louis City. They reported an increase of 315 persons, a 34% change in the number of persons in families using emergency shelters. Most of these shelters kick families out during the daytime hours, leaving them no place to go.)
What started out as just making bagged lunches has spread to supplying personal hygiene products, clothing, and bus passes. At this time, we are making approximately 250 bagged lunches. In addition, we strive to supply each person with chapstick, lotion, wet wipes, kleenex, toothbrush and paste, feminine hygiene products, hats, gloves, and a bus pass.
Our goal is to continue serving those in our community that have come upon hard times by helping with some of their very basic needs. We really believe that this isn't just about "talking the talk", but "walking the walk". We think it is important to "Be Good To Each Other", because it is the right thing to do.
I hope you all have a fabulous evening!
