To start with . . .
I just added a few more Red Cross Necklaces
from my dear friend Donna Clement to our . . .
I love these little necklaces . . .
simple . . . pretty . . . and a bit industrial and modern!!
but - what I love most about them . . . is what they represent!!!
People often ask me what the red cross truly mean to me.
Well to me - a few words that come to mind are . . .
hope . . . healing . . . inclusiveness . . . and kindness!!
You see . . . I learned this from my parents at a very early age . . .
my parents did a lot of volunteer work over the years . . .
and they knew how to give back!
From the Project Hope Ship years ago . . .

to volunteering in Haiti year after year . . .
at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital . . .

I love the fact that you can see the cross symbol in the signs in this old photo!
And here below is a photo of a man I completely look up to - my Dad . . .
doing what he does best - caring for others!!

In it's simplest form . . .
the Red Cross to me is a reminder to give back to others . . .
especially for those who need it most!!
While writing this post I have decided to do something . . .
from here on out - I will be donating $5.00 for every piece I sell that has a red cross on it . . . Necklaces . . . Pouches . . . etc!!
And I will also donate $10.00 for the larger Cross pieces such as the New Cross Pillows I will be adding in the next few weeks!!
I do believe that this could really add up for someone in need!!
And just who will I be donating this money to?
Well - I can't wait to share that in my next post - sooo stay tuned!!
ok. . . ok . . . I will give you a hint . . . :)
it involves children . . . and yes - they truly need it most!!
Have a GREAT day everyone!!
