Love is ALWAYS in Fashion 2017 Round-Up and 2018 Hat Announcement!

Hello, friends! As 2017 comes to a close, I just wanted to say THANK YOU for your presence and kind words and support this year and every year. I'm so very grateful for you. 

I've just completed my 6th annual Love is ALWAYS in Fashion hat fundraising, where I'm passing $5 from each hat sale onto an organization of my choice. This year I had 3 partners because the world is falling apart and I couldn't pick just one. I also asked for cash donations and did other types of fundraising to support agencies this year.

I'll be donating:
reStart, Inc - $250! (includes $50 from a special fundraiser during KIFF). I also separately raised $260 through a Facebook fundraiser for my birthday! Thanks to all who donated to that!
Let America Vote - $100
Southern Poverty Law Center - $100


I'm winding down my hat-making. My life has changed a LOT in the past 6 years, and I have other projects I want to do for 2018.

That being said, I'm still selling hats through February (because it's freaking cold, you guys). 

So! Through February 2018, I'm shifting gears and fundraising for Midwest Innocence Project; an organization that gives legal support to the wrongfully convicted. From their website
The Midwest Innocence Project (MIP) is a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the investigation, litigation, and exoneration of wrongfully convicted men and women in our five-state region. Recent studies conservatively estimate that between 2% and 5% of all inmates in America are innocent of the crimes for which they were convicted, with some estimates reaching up to 7%. This means that somewhere between 2,000 and 7,000 moms, dads, sons, and daughters in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and Arkansas are locked behind bars this very moment for crimes they did not commit.
I've partnered with America's Improv Test Kitchen, and they will be hosting me for 2 more events! Saturday, January 27 and February 10, 7:00 at the Buffalo Room in the back of Westport Flea Market. I'll be there at 6:00 selling before and after the show, and audience members have a chance to win a FREE hat each show!

Special thanks to AITK for hosting me in Nov and December. I did almost half of my hat sales for the year at those 2 shows!

As always, you can make an appointment to shop the hat bin! Message me on Facebook or Instagram!

Here's to an even MORE Classy 2018!
