I am kind of a "root for the underdog" type of girl. I'm also a "give back" kind of girl. I really wanted to give something to a cause when I started on my business, and when I saw a group that could really use help, well it was a no-brainer! It is with great pleasure that I give a portion of sales to The Fragile X Research Foundation of Canada*.
This group is highly regarded! Approximately 91% of money collected goes to research and programs to help the families affected with this challenging syndrome. Here is some great information on Fragile X:
Also, check out this cool movie about a man with Fragile X on a mission to see Lars Ulrich of Metallica: Youtube Video (Movie Trailer). This movie is currently available on Amazon Prime.
"Technical but totally explains it" information is here: YouTube Video.
Donations can be given directly here: Fragile X Donation Page.
Finally, I will gladly give you credit for the donation, which means you will get the tax receipt for your donation.
* The only time I will not contribute to Fragile X is when I am participating in an event or exhibit where donations are being collected for another cause (a recent one being The Breast Cancer Society of Canada as part of a group Art Exhibition in Toronto). When a painting is sold through a gallery, 10% is taken off my part of the sale only, not the part the Gallery takes.
