The feeling of helplessness overwhelms me when I see images of devastation in Japan. I can only help a little bit but I like the feeling of making a small difference. Once again I am asking/offering from my customers to purchase jewelry and that 100% of their purchase will be donated to the Catholic Relief Fund. I like donating 100% because it is a clean number, it’s not a percentage of the profit etc…its 100%. I had researched the Catholic Relief Fund when we made our last Charity donation to Haiti and they are amazing at efficiency and making sure that relief and help is made to the exact location. One of the best things is 93% of what we give to the CRF goes into the hands of people that need it. This is really significant since most nonprofits have higher overhead expenses.
So on a lighter note…shop, buy some baubles and give 100% of your dollars to help someone in Japan. At the end of the day… giving freely is one of the best feelings.
