Welcome to July! In the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, it’s quite difficult to feel patriotic when there are children separate from their parents in cages at our border. We have to do something. We have to fight and change the policies that are corroding our country from the inside out. And at Wire and Honey, we love to put our money where our mouth is. That’s why the July charity is RAICES.
We need our lawmakers to do something. We need to demand that they do something. After the shooting in Florida, I have been overwhelmed with sadness and grief that this is still happening, how is this still happening? But I have also been overwhelmed with a sense of hope and spirit. The way the survivors of that tragedy have spoken out and are holding their officials accountable is so strong and beautiful. The GOP as we know it will not exist in twenty years, and that fills me with such optimism for our future. We have to follow the lead of these survivors and listen to them. They are literally begging us to protect them, and we are doing nothing. Unacceptable.
Last week, the Trump administration fired all members of the HIV/AIDS advisory council. Therefore, AIDS United seemed the natural choice for our January organization of the month. Read more about this amazing organization and we thank you for shopping for a cause!
Did you know that 1 in 5 American children are in dire need of new shoes? It’s a staggering statistic that had us here at Wire and Honey heartbroken. A basic necessity that many of us take for granted, and 20% of kids don’t have. And it’s why Shoes That Fit is our November charity.
And so each month we choose a charity that means something to us. Something that is relevant in our socio-economic times and combats issues that are important to us. And that’s why for the month of October, it was a no brainer to donate to The International Relief Teams.
As you all know, I usually reach out to you to choose the organizations we support each month. I love giving to the charities that you are passionate about. However, every now and then, I hear about an organization that speaks to my heart and I am compelled to share it with you because I am so excited about it. This month's charity, TinySuperheroes, is one such organization!
