It's coming up on a year since The Temple Wolf was finally released into the wild. In some ways, it feels like a lot less, and in other ways, a LOT more!
After spending a lot of my savings on stock (and pretty samples for myself...) and depop-ing my wardrobe away to fund said 'stock' addiction, it is only now that I'm starting to see The Temple Wolf head into the green.
I think it's important to give a little of what we have to those in need and so I'm delighted to announce that I will be donating €1 from every order to charity. It's not a lot, I know, but for now it's all I can afford and I figure all those little euros add up!
I asked for your advice on Instagram and Facebook as to which charities you'd like me link up with. You had lots of great ideas and they have all been added to the list.
The plan is to connect with one charity for a period of 3 months so that we can raise a bit of a chunk of money for them.
To start the project off, I've chosen to donate to The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre. The centre's mission is ...
Preventing and healing the trauma of rape and sexual abuse.
To offer help and support to anyone who has experienced sexual violence of any kind.
The centre offers a 24 hour helpline run by trained counsellors.
I'm not really sure what to say about the subject. Unfortunately, I think the majority of us know someone who has been sexually assaulted. I can't find the right words to talk about it but I feel it is so important to support the few services available who help those affected.
If you would like to make an additional donation to THE RAPE CRISIS CENTRE with you order, please contact me at email@example.com
The Temple Wolf is linked to the centre for the months of May, June and July 2017. I would love to hear your suggestions for which charity to work with next!
And now, it's time for a corny quote to round it all up...
