Helping Hand {Charity Collab}

Helping Hand Charity Collaboration

Some of you may know that one of Owl Tree Studio’s new CT members Mary (Marnel) recently experienced a life changing tragedy when her 17 year old daughter suffered a seizure and died unexpectedly last month. You can read about Mary’s story in her own words here. The Charlie Gonzalez Memorial Fund has been setup to help Mary’s family cover the cost of the hospital and funeral bills for her daughter.

In response, digital designers from across several stores came together to create a HUGE mega collaboration kit to benefit Charlie’s fund. All proceeds from the sale of the kit (minus any Paypal fees) will go directly to into the memorial fund. Here is what you can expect to see inside this kit:

I just wanted to say Thank You to M. Velazquez, she brought me a lovely card and a gift card for the Grocery Store..
I actually feel bad b/c I've been neglecting the whole Grocery Shopping thing and i know I need stuff but just send my poor Ro Ro for runs on daily stuff we need. This is my motivation to go and
get some shopping done! Thank you so much M. Velazquez!! <3
Hugs - Mary M.
