Sheep & Shawl donates to various organizations you might be interested in.
I stand with Ukraine. May peace be found soon and may those fleeing and those defending themselves in the face of war find protection and be reunited with their families and friends. You can donate to the organization of your choice – here is a list to consider if you’re not sure where to give: https://give.org/news/wise-giving-wednesday-tips-on-donations-to-assist-ukraine-relief-efforts . Thank you. 🇺🇦
End gun violence. Sadly the violence in the US is from within our country. A report from the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Violence Solutions states that 2020 saw the highest number of gun-related deaths ever recorded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As one of its findings, the report concludes that states with the lowest gun death rates have stronger gun laws. Gun violence is now the No. 1 cause of death for U.S. children and adolescents (ages 1-19). Please consider volunteering your time or donating to https://www.everytown.org/about-everytown/ .
I encourage donations to Heifer International to buy a fiber animal for an underprivileged family in the world. Heifer’s “gifting” program creates community support and a legacy when the recipient family later gifts animals to neighbors to spread the fiber farming model. Donate quickly and safely online at Sheep & Shawl’s donation page .
