To Connect, Create, and Collaborate





When groups of people combine their energies and talents, great things can happen.  The jewelry artists from Whole Lotta Whimsy Sunday Circle are no different.  The circle on Facebook formed by Tonya Davidson http://www.wholelottawhimsy.com  consists artists from around the world.  This group (and yes, I’m part of it) shares experiences, talents, friendship and the commitment to ‘connect, create, and collaborate’.  Take a look at the fan page to see how to join https://www.facebook.com/WholeLottaWhimsy
It did not take the group long to realize we could make a small difference in not only our community but the world community.  So we decided to create a project to benefit the victims of the Joplin, MO EF5 tornado that struck at 5:41p on May 22, 2011 killing at least 154 people, and injuring at least 900.  Our Collaboration Charms for Charity project was born. 
More than 20 artists from the group produced unique handmade charms to create 6 charm bracelets to be auctioned at E-Bay.  The first bracelet was successfully auctioned and the second bracelet is now being auctioned on eBay Charms For Charity: The Joplin Project Bracelet 2 | eBay  You are just in time to see it!  And keep watching for the remaining 4.
Read more about the bracelet and see photos on eBay.
Every cent of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to Joplin Relief Fund through the Catholic Charities of St. Louis, MO. If you'd like to make a direct donation please follow this link: Catholic Charities St. Louis
