New changes are being made to charitable giving in 2019 - I decided I didn't want the amount given to a charity to be directly tied to what someone purchased.
When I started donating through my business, it was easy to tie an environmental organization to the theme of a ring design (Tree bark Rings = American Forest Foundation). I support humanitarian organizations too, but there wasn't as clear of a path to connecting "sales of this item to this group".
I feel like there is never enough being done to help protect our planet or the people who are not in a place of power. So I want to help bring awareness to organizations who are working towards making the world a better place for future generations, whether it is through trying to protect our natural resources or fighting against injustice and intolerance. While I can't volunteer to help out all these organizations, I can do what I do best (being an artist) and give financially to help support them all.
All organizations listed receive financial support from me through sales of my art - jewelry, drawings, paintings, etc.
