Back in January, I announced a partnership to donate a portion of all Michigan burlap pillow sales to help a local friend who is participating in a Ride 4 Refugees endeavor through Venture Expeditions this summer. He is raising money for those less fortune in Thailand and Burma to supply food, educations, and hope. I decided to partner with him because no matter where anyone is located, I feel that we should try to help others in need when we can. Regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or beliefs, I strive to help make the world a better place as much as I can. Of course, there is certainly more that I can always do (as everyone can do) but taking small steps in the right direction is a good start.
This month we will wrap up with this partnership. For the remainder of April, you can still purchase a beautiful handmade Michigan burlap pillow in our Etsy shop and each pillow will donate $5 to this cause. If you need more information about the cause, visit this post from January where I give more details about what it is and why it matters.
With spring cleaning and redecorating underway this season, think about adding one of these pillows to your home or a home of a friend as a gift.
Later this week, I'll be sharing a new cross-body burlap bag made with colorful floral linen fabric. Stay tuned and have a great week!
