• In November 2017 I held a fundraiser at my home¬†for the Save the Children foundation. I raised a total of $400 to buy chicks ($25), art materials and musical instruments ($30), ducks ($35), a pig ($50), bees ($60) and a cow ($200). (The funds were matched by Johnson & Johnson, bringing the total to $800.)
  • Through efforts at my studio and personal donations, I have been able to:
  • donate $400 to Life Is Good No Matter What (an area charity which helps provide "cherished" experiences for adults with Stage 4 cancer)¬†through efforts at my studio and direct donations
  • donate $50 for the Human Rights campaign
  • coordinate efforts to donate 1,200+ knitted and crocheted rectangles to Warm Up Akron! and 75+ scarves for children in area homeless shelters
  • paint a Soap Box Derby car which was used in the opening ceremonies at the Gay Games 2014
