I am tearing up right now.
But you guys. Oh, you wonderfully big-hearted supporters of Do Good Shop. You are the reason I am teary today. Apparently you are not content with going too slowly. Because YOU have showed up. BIG time!Y'all ready for this?? Brace yourselves. (and wait through my love for words for the big reveal -lol)
This past Saturday, we marked the 2 year anniversary of Do Good Shop with a sip | shop | celebrate party. My friend snapped this picture. I love the message. PERSIST. The ills of the world are GREAT and greatly discouraging. It's hard to keep moving forward, often thinking there is no way we can make a dent in all that needs to change. And yet . . . that little ray of light shining through. HOPE. Hope that we can make a difference. Hope that says to the oppressed, "We see you. And we will not look the other way."
And YOU, our amazing shoppers and world-changers, have NOT looked the other way! Quite the opposite. This very weekend you helped our young nonprofit hit a benchmark that deserves a grand celebration! How fitting.
In just over 2 short years, you have raised
for victims of injustice all over the globe!!
Friends. I am floored. That is a LOT of living wage work in developing countries! Sustainable freedom and rescue to former victims of oppression created by YOU. Look at you go!
More happy tears to come!
