Wild Blackbird Boutique Summer Earth Charity Event

This Summer, from June 1st through August 31st, 10% of your purchase will be donated to one of three charities, and you get to choose which one!

A Little Back Story 

I had decided this year to make greater efforts at updating my two websites, my professional practice website, and this my Creative Goods site inspired by my original artwork. The thing is, I cannot seem to do that without somehow being creative about it, beyond working out new designs even.

And so, I have found inspiration in the celebrations and observances happening around the world for creating themed mini collections and offerings that also celebrate these events. 

They can be quite light hearted, such as Iris Day, Love A Tree Day, World Sparrow day, or more intensely meaningful such as International Women's Day and my charity summer event aimed at many concerning conditions on our precious planet.

Consequently, many designs are only accessible for a short period as they ebb frrom and flow through the monthly or seasonal collections. So, for this summer event I have made a much larger amount of my designs available for their longest period this year yet.

My Creative Goods line allows me to share my art to more of the people who connect with deep pleasure to it. I gives me pleasure to add to that as I can, even if in small ways. I hope the contribution to one of the selected charities below as part of your purchase, is an uplifting addtion to acquiring your special piece.

If a purchase is not suitable for you during this time, please consider donating directly to any of the three charities listed below. I've included quick links for you!

With much gratitude, appreciation and warmth,

Of Note:

June is National Indigenous History Month Canada "a time to recognize the rich history, heritage, resilience and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis."

Aug 9th is International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples (UN)

As much as I would like to have a collection to highlight these important observances, I am not Indigenous. And to draw a connection through subject matter alone would be signifcantly disrespectful of me. 

But I really don't want these important dates to go unmentioned. To honour these celebrations I specifcally choose the charity Oceans North for the work they do "within the framework of Indigenous knowledge, rights and consultation."
