We hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. We both spent time with our families & friends and ate way too much. Then, like everyone else, we did a bit of shopping. Today it is Giving Tuesday. A time that we can celebrate this wonderful season by giving back. As you know, our two favorite non-profits are Literacy Kansas City and Band of Angels. We are proud to partner with these two amazing Kansas City based non-profits year around and would be thrilled if you would consider donating to them.
At Literacy Kansas City staff, tutors, volunteers, and instructors build a collaborative learning environment where adult students expand their reading, writing, math, and digital skills. With support from volunteers, donors, partners, and the community at large, Literacy KC invests in Kansas City’s greatest asset – its people. You can donate to Literacy Kansas City by clicking here.
If you are still in the mood the shop, how about purchasing an ornament for a teacher or as a hostess gift? These ornaments are a part of our Literacy Kansas City Collection therefore a portion of each sale directly benefits Literacy Kansas City. Click here to see all of our handmade ornaments.
Band of Angels collects used instruments from the public, refurbishes them and gives them to kids in need who wish to participate in orchestra or band programs. Through cash donations, fundraisers and partnerships like ours they also provide scholarships to kids in need to attend music camp every summer. Band of Angels was formed in 2010 by Meyer Music and WDAF-TV Fox 4. If you would like to donate an old instrument that is gathering dust in your house you can drop it off at any Meyer Music location. Kristi & I save instruments that cannot be fixed from going into a landfill by making them into jewelry that gives back to Band of Angels with every sale.
These Band of Angels Collection ornaments are currently available on our website. Click here to see them.
Believe it Christmas is only 26 days away. We hope you enjoy the very best parts of this holiday season. Have a wonderful week!
