I got Project Pouch 6 up today for preorder (through the week) and now its time for some fun! With all the everything related to COVID - we wanted to help do some good in the world... In November so many of you came together and helped us make a donation to Face to Face - we raised over $600. Minnesota and homeless youth need our help. Here is a bit about their foundation.
"Since 1972, Face to Face has been serving young people experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless in Ramsey County. Today, we provide comprehensive medical care, mental healthcare, housing support, case management, employment training and support, and other social services to low-income and insecurely housed youth ages 11 to 24.
Face to Face served over 3,000 youth between the ages of 11 and 24 last year. We connected with an additional 5,500 youth through our health education outreach. The vast majority (over 85 percent) of our young people are people of color and 17 percent identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community."
Giving back to others any time I can has always been a huge part of my life... so today I ask you to help us, help these kids. I thought it would be fun to do a SUPER special giveaway... all donors to have the chance to WIN (TWO WINNERS) 2 yards of cotton lycra (I will send options to pick from once the winners are chosen) AND a SIGNED copy of The Happy Ever After Playlist by Abby Jimenez.

One last thing I wanted to mention - is these amazing cupcakes here were made by Abby's cupcake shop - Nadia Cakes (seriously is there anything she can't do?!) Her store is closed to customers inside BUT you can still order for delivery and curbside pickup! In times like these we have a great opportunity to shop small to if you have the extra funding to spare consider shopping at some of these local shops and book stores <3
Good luck everyone!
