Today I wanted to say thank you!
I just sent a $75 donation to charity: water thanks to everyone's purchases of my patterns, kits & yarns over the past 3 months. This is over twice the amount that we contributed in the last campaign & I couldn't be happier!
Back in July I started a campaign for charity: water as a part of the #titsoutcollective movement & felt compelled to continue sending donations for 10% of every sale made through my Ravelry store & the Yumi Yarns Shop. I tend to be very skeptical of any organization that claims to be collecting money for a cause, but I feel 100% confident in supporting charity: water because they are all about transparency & they have private donors to cover operating costs. This means that every single dollar that is donated to them is being put to use in funding clean water sources for communities that are in need. The funds aren't being used to pay some guy's salary & they aren't disappearing into marketing funds, they're just helping people get clean water for everyday use.
I absolutely love that.
If you'd like to contribute to our campaign for the 4th Quarter of 2018 directly, you can do so at this page: charity: water
Otherwise, just keep purchasing YumiYarns patterns & kits. I'll tally up the total 4th Quarter sales & will post them into the 2019 1st Quarter campaign in January.
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart. Water is so crucial to survival & the knowledge that it can be provided so cheaply and easily in places that currently don't have access keeps me motivated to keep giving & encouraging others to give as well.
Please share this post and/or the campaign page so that we can spread the word.
