Hi everyone! I recently came across an awesome blog post about aprons for Haiti (find more information here) and so I had to look into this further. Many of you probably know that I started my little GeminiRed Creations business because of the want/need for an apron. A little over a year later I still make aprons, but I also make just about anything that strikes my fancy or that people ask me to create.
So, of course, I knew I had to get involved with making these aprons. From what I can tell many people have been sending 3 aprons. I’d love to send at least 10 (although, on GoFundMe I’ve set a lofty goal of raising $1,000 for this cause). I have set up the GoFundMe page to raise money for purchasing fabric and supplies and to continue doing events like this.
Years before opening (and eventually closing) my salon I always knew that while owning a business I wanted to “give back” and do for others. My goal has always been to give a portion of what I create and earn to those less fortunate or to help find a cure for things such as Crohn’s and Colitis. I give 10% of what I earn to the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and would love to create wonderful products that inspire people to purchase them so that I can continue to give. As well as help me with projects like Craft Hope Aprons for Haiti.
The original deadline for sending aprons was the end of May, but it has been extended through June, so I am putting needle to fabric and going to sew up a bunch to send.
I appreciate your help, and as always your love and support! Thank you for always helping me make my dreams come true!
Who doesn’t love a cute apron?
