the Accountability Post, 2020

It’s always kind of awkward, sharing information about money and finances. But, accountability is important, particularly when something is as important as this. And, if I’m asking you to support my business with the purchase of my patterns so I can donate money to organizations that are doing good work, I must share that I did, in fact, do that. To that end, I’ll use this post to list out all of the places I donate to throughout the year, and if the donations are tied to a fundraiser I have or hold, I’ll share how much I donated.

6/11: Black Mamas Matter Alliance

6/4: National Bail Out

 

In May 2020, I donated 25% of the proceeds from pattern sales split between the following (I added a bit to be able to donate more):

  • Oregon Food Bank: $250

  • The Bail Project: $50
  • NAACP Legal Defense Fund: $50
  • We the Protestors: $50
