As artists, we believe that the more we support, encourage, and pour into others - the more room we have for creativity within ourselves. Creativity and inspiration spark life, and we love to share that spark with others - especially when they may be in places that seem dark and lifeless. Currently we are honored to partner with the following organizations that seek to bring light into dark places:
Family Sunshine Center
The Family Sunshine Center has been serving victims and survivors of family violence for over 35 years in Autauga, Butler, Chilton, Crenshaw, Elmore, Lowndes and Montgomery counties, while also providing sexual assault counseling in Dallas, Perry, and Wilcox counties. Since 1981, they have grown to incorporate services not only to victims with immediate crisis needs but also those ready to move out of emergency shelter and into self-sufficient lifestyles. They also provide a non-residential counseling center and a community outreach program for prevention education. Most recently, they have added sexual assault counseling to the services they offer.
They work diligently to raise awareness about domestic violence and sexual assault and the services that are available to victims. They strive to ensure a network and positive communications among law enforcement, legal services, the court system and other agencies a victim might encounter while exiting the cycle of violence.

You can also support their work by purchasing one of our Sunshine Boxes or a FSC Candle. A portion of the sales from these items goes directly to the Family Sunshine Center.
The Dorcas Society is a local group of seamstresses that create hand-sewn products such as crocheted potholders, hats, and scarves, quilts, pillows, and purses. The proceeds from the sale of these items are used to purchase buckwheat husks and supplies to create neck pillows that are donated to cancer patients undergoing chemo treatment.
You can find their handmade items in our shop at 1228 Madison Ave.
My Path Has Purpose
MPHP is an organization that works with women and men to help them learn to recognize their worth and purpose - to understand that they are more than their circumstances. They offer support and teaching in various forms - conference speaking, art classes, books, artwork, and their t-shirt line with inspiring and empowering messages. A portion of their proceeds is also used to purchase “My Path Has Purpose” tshirts which are given to cancer patients undergoing chemo treatment.
You can find their artwork and tshirts in our shop at 1228 Madison Ave.
