I've made some little raffia tassels which are attached to a hand-stamped gift tag, ready for your message. These are plastic-free, and the tassel can be removed and attached to a key ring, a bag, popped on the wall, or used in any way you can imagine! 1.50 from each gift tag goes to charity, and the remaining 50c helps cover my material costs, but I'm gifting my time in making each one.
In selecting a charity to donate to, I was originally thinking of those connected with protecting our oceans and wildlife, but I remembered hearing someone say that domestic violence spikes around Christmas time with the added financial and emotional pressures, and I knew about a locally based charity called I Got Your Backpack that helps Women's Refuge, Shine and Shakti safehouses.
I Got Your Backpack is a non-profit initiative and registered NZ charity, founded by a survivor of domestic violence. She and her daughter stayed in a Women's Refuge safehouse after fleeing with nothing, and she found it extremely difficult without basic toiletries or something to give her daughter, like a book to read or a toy. As a result of this experience, I Got Your Backpack was formed, providing packs of essential items, tailored to parents, children, babies, and men. The refuges mentioned above order the packs as needed, which IGYB fill and deliver nationwide.
Giving always feels good, but at this time of year it takes on more meaning. I would love it if you could help support this worthy cause this Christmas! Simply add a gift tag/s to your order. There are 2 colours in the raffia tags - natural and blush - if you are wanting a particular colour please leave a comment with your order. Thank you!
