April is a great month for supporting our local businesses!

April is here! And I am excited to share with you that Stella & Dot SOLD out of our original Harmony Bracelet that we were selling to raise money and awareness for Autism Awareness!

Don’t worry though; Stella&Dot has opened up three of our favorite wishing bracelets as the new Autism Boutique so you can still help the HollyRod Foundation with your purchase! The Elephant, Gold Pave and the Horseshoe Wishing Bracelets are all included for just $19!

This month, I am working with Clever Belle which is an awesome local tshirt company which is brand new and innovative. They have an amazing message that I respect and it is part of what drew me to them and this month of giving and fundraising seemed to go together.

And here is part of their story that really resounded with me.

“Our goal is to give girls choices in apparel that depict who they are and who they want to become. We want them to embrace their inner beauty rather than defining themselves by their outer beauty. We want girls to express the things that create passion in their lives and drive them to learn, explore, build and create. Girls and boys have similar dreams and aspirations when they are young. In fact, studies show girls have the exact same aspirations as boys at the age of six or seven, but then something happens soon after. Around the ages of 8 – 12, girls actually start to lose self-esteem and withdraw from those activities that once gave them enjoyment.”

My newest business, KEEP Collective has an amazing connection with the KIND Campaign. A group that supports anti-bullying!! Buy a KIND key or You Can Sit with Us bar and support anti-bullying add a keeper (or bracelet) and I will donate $1 to CASA of DuPage for National Child Abuse Prevention month!!!

Thank you so much!
