My mother, Joyce (“Joy”) gave her strength and energy to others throughout her adult life. While raising five children, volunteering for hospice to help families during their most difficult times, and gathering her grandchildren close every moment she could, my mother let all of us know that she was there to help, nurture and support. To honor her, for each purchase, a portion of the price of each item will be donated to a non-profit that helps families in crisis.

As you receive your heirloom items, know that you are getting a hug from my grandmother and that part of the proceeds from your purchase will honor my mother’s example of helping families experience needed comfort and support.
