WILLIE & LU GIVES BACK
***** ***** ***** ***** *****

Willie & Lu contributes 10-25% of all proceeds to humanitarian, environmental, educational, health, & wildlife/animal organizations. I will periodically post updates on the shop blog (willieandlu.blogspot.com) and FB page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Willie-Lu-jewelry-with-moxie/186142508122). Each item will have a charity/relief organization associated with it; you can find info about the organization at the top and/or bottom of each listing. > If you would like the stipend from your purchase to go to a particular agency -- either one of those listed below or the organization of your choice -- just drop me a line. I'll make sure to deliver 10-20% of your purchase price to the recipient you request.


2014 - 2015 GIVING:

DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS / Medicins Sans Frontieres

Doctors Without Borders (doctorswithoutborders.org) is perhaps the most important international health crisis organization. This organization is finally getting the attention it has long deserved as its volunteers are on the front line in the ebola crisis in the affected areas of Western Africa. But they're saving lives all over the world, every day, wherever help is needed. From its charter: DWB provides assistance to populations in distress, to victims of natural or man-made disasters, and to victims of armed conflict. They do so irrespective of race, religion, creed, or political convictions. DWB observes neutrality and impartiality in the name of universal medical ethics and the right to humanitarian assistance and claims full and unhindered freedom in the exercise of its functions.

THE LUPUS FOUNDATION of AMERICA (lupus.org).

Lucy was insistent that we contribute to the Lupus Foundation, for a very personal reason: I was diagnosed with lupus about 10 years ago, and recently Lucy was thought to have some *possible* early markers of the illness. I desperately want her to grow up healthy and happy! Lupus is more common than you may think: 1 in 1,000 Anglo women in America has lupus, and as many as 1 in 250 African-American women do (it's much more common in women). If you're wondering, lupus is a chronic illness in which the body's immune system attacks its organs, including the brain, kidneys, and skin. Some quick facts can be found here: http://www.niams.nih.gov/Health_Info/Lupus/lupus_ff.asp

THE RED CROSS

2014-15 was a HORRIFIC winter (depending on how you feel about snow, ice, loss of power, and general treacherous conditions), while as we head into fall, California and much of the Western US continues to suffer from an historic drought. Domestically and internationally, there are *always* communities in dire need of first-responder rescue and relief, so I'll be earmarking proceeds from many of my items to the Red Cross. ▒ In 2014, we donated $320 to the Red Cross. ▒ IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE AN INSTANT $10 DONATION TO THE RED CROSS, simply text REDCROSS to 90999. You can also donate any amount in a matter of seconds using FACEBOOK's Causes link, which allows you to challenge your friends to donate as well.

UCLA's PEDIATRIC PAIN PROGRAM

Another recipient for 2014 is UCLA's Pediatric Pain Program, whose team has literally turned my 15 year-old daughter Lucy's life around, helping her to recover from a severe chronic pain disorder. Lucy's treatment includes not only traditional medicine, but also alternative therapies such as biofeedback, hypnotherapy, acupuncture, yoga, etc.. As vital as these services continue to be for us (SO fortunate to have excellent health insurance), many families cannot afford elements of the program, particularly alternative treatments such as acupuncture and hypnotherapy, which are not covered by many insurance companies. For information about the Program, as well as other treatment centers in the Mattel Children's Hospital, visit http://www.uclahealth.org/body_mattel.cfm?id=1192 and *PLEASE* do not hesitate to drop me a line if you have any questions.



The LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETY. In memory of our dear friend Laura, who passed away 4 years ago September at just 34, we'll continue contributing a portion of proceeds from our RAINBOW COLLECTION to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (http://www.lls.org).

Please convo me if you have questions.
