4th Quarter Earnings
As you may already know, I choose a non-profit organization each quarter to receive a percentage of my sales. This is my way of paying forward the generosity and kindness I've received in support of Lofted Designs. I probably wouldn't be making jewelry at all if not for the help, confidence and support of many wonderful people. So, in turn, each quarter I donate a portion of my proceeds to a local non-profit organization.
Choosing my 4th quarter recipient was easy because I have an entire team of craftspeople behind me. More than 40 members of the Etsy Maine Team have decided to donate 15% of their sales between November 13th and 19th to Preble Street, an organization based in Portland, Maine, striving to turn hunger and homelessness into opportunity and hope. Preble Street's mission is to provide accessible barrier-free services to empower people experiencing problems with homelessness, housing, hunger and poverty, and to advocate for solutions to these problems.
In addition to all of these really talented Etsy sellers donating 15%, I will base my donation upon all Lofted Designs sales from October through the end of the year. Happy shopping!
