February Jewelry for Charity Recap & Marck Kick-Off

Thanks for all the sales, February customers! It may have been a short-ish month but with your help, I still managed to raise $382 for Compassionate Cooks - yay! I know Colleen will appreciate the help and be able to put the funds to good use through her inspiring podcast and other outreach projects.

For the month of March, 5% of my sales will go to Food For Life. Here is some information directly from their website describing their organization and programs...


The distribution of sanctified vegetarian meals has been and will continue to be an essential part of India's Vedic culture of hospitality from which Food for Life was born.

Since its inception in the early 70’s, Food for Life has tried to liberally distribute pure vegetarian meals (prasadam) throughout the world with the aim of creating peace and prosperity. The Food for Life Global office, directed by Paul Turner, facilitates the expansion, co-ordination and promotion of prasadam distribution throughout the world.


FOOD FOR LIFE is a nonprofit organization, bringing food and life to the needy of the world through the liberal distribution of pure vegetarian meals. The project started in 1974 when an elderly Indian swami, Srila Prabhupada, implored his yoga students not to allow anyone within a ten mile radius of his ashram to go hungry. The program grew quickly, and today Food for Life is active in over 60 countries worldwide.

Over 1,000,000 meals daily!

With volunteers serving more than 1,000,000 free vegetarian meals daily from free food restaurants, mobile kitchens, to schools and to disaster areas, FOOD FOR LIFE is the largest vegetarian/vegan food relief in the world.
