A Weekend for Change

I had a few posts planned for the end of this week to promote the Laura Chau Collection but the events this weekend in Charlottesville and the subsequent remarks by the president left us sad, angry, and confused.

Our dear friend Karen (I’d be tempted to say “remarkably” here, but I am actually not surprised in the least) raised $15,000 in about three hours for the SPLC, and her motivation to not just say something, but actually, do a thing inspired us.

We will be donating all of the proceeds from all Kelbourne Woolens pattern sales starting today through Sunday to Color of Change.

Color of Change is an organization dedicated to all manner of empowerment and civil rights. Here is their mission statement: 

Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization.

We help people respond effectively to injustice in the world around us. As a national online force driven by over one million members, we move decision-makers in corporations and government to create a more human and less hostile world for Black people in America.

Whether it be $50 or $5,000, (hopefully closer to the latter) we hope with your help to make a small difference this weekend.

    What was the saying, it takes a village. It’s going to be the voices of women that speak the loudest even if it takes us one voice at a time.
