As someone who makes her living from working with her hands, I have to admit I often daydream about how scary it would be if something bad happened to my hands. I feel so lucky to get to create and work with my hands everyday and I know that Amber & Jonathan from Perrodin Supply Co. have that same gratefulness. But something bad has happened to Jonathan's hands. He recently had an accident in his wood shop where his right forefinger was completely severed off. The Perrodin family is obviously suffering some financial burdens right now trying to pay for the medial bills and with the hit to their shop production, as he is the sole woodworker. I found out about their fundraiser recently where they are opening a curated shop of beautiful, and all donated goods from friends within the blogging, etsy, and creative community and I decided I really wanted to help out. I will be donating 2 styles of earrings and two styles of book necklaces to their shop in hopes that their sales will mean financial aid to their cause. And some of my favorite friends in the handmade community are joining in too. Vivi Dot is donating some pretty little things to the fundraiser along with Tumbleweed HC sunglasses.
So when you are hunting for new home goods and accessories this week, think about how your money could go to an important cause while also receiving your favorite goods. Come check out their Four Fingers Fundraiser Shop while it is filling up with goods. And start shopping on Monday, March 11th. I know I have my eye on that hand printed mountain tote!
