Since I am also a development professional in the nonprofit industry, I understand and promote the importance of philanthropy.
Once a year I will donate one of my pieces be included in an annual fundraising auction to the charity of my choice. This is my way of promoting organizations that I care deeply about and supporting their mission through the sale of my jewelry.
Since I am on the Board of Directors for Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest, they are my first charity of choice. I donated one of my orbit elements for our annual Sippin’ for the Seven wine and beer tasting event and art auction. This year the event raised over $16,000!
