Well, tomorrow is First Friday! I love this day of the month as Downtown Phoenix gathers for a large art walk. We have been a part of this art walk more than once. We showed our art at the New City Studio a few months ago. We had such a good time, we’re going back! This time will be a bit different though. Instead of displaying some great art pieces, we will be participating in “Shopping With Purpose” with many other great vendors. Everyone there will be donating a portion of their proceeds to a social justice project or a charity of some kind. Donations will help everything from people living with HIV/AIDS to hunger.
Here is the flier to the event and all of the relevant details.
My shop Chicks Who Give a Hoot will be there selling all sorts of fun things and I will be donating half of all proceeds to Mercy Ministries. They have been on my heart for a while and I have financially supported them in the past. Mercy Ministries have been providing hope and healing to women seeking freedom from life-controlling issues for years. The waiting list for their bibically-based program is just heartbreaking, but the work they’re able to do without any government funding in astounding!
I have been a busy bee getting ready for the show. There is so much that goes into the preparations for a show like this and I can’t wait to be a part of this event and show off all my handmade things. If you’re in the Phoenix area… heck, even if you’re not, I hope you’ll stop by the New City Studio to do some shopping. This is really a great way to make a difference with your gift giving this year.
