Here are some other projects I’ve worked on to bring awareness to things that are important to me.
I made these earrings for a personal fundraiser in solidarity with the BLM protests that started in Minneapolis in 2020. All $1K in proceeds went directly to the Du Nord a Riot Recovery Fund in Minneapolis which went towards rebuilding Black and Brown owned business that were damaged in protests after the murder of George Floyd. Raffle tickets were $5 each and it ran for one week, this was my first raffle and it was incredible to see my bead loving community come together! Since then the Du Nord Riot Recovery Fund has become the Du Nord Foundation!
I made these earrings as part of an Indigenous artist group auction to raise funds for Navajo, Hopi, and White Mountain Apache Covid Relief. Check out @nativeartists4covidrelief on Instagram for details on their next auction date, to donate art, to bid and to raise awareness!
These earrings were made as part of a raffle fundraiser for Not Another Black Life - a local Tkaronto based grassroots group doing both emergency and transformational work.
These earrings were donated to the Mi’kma’ki raffle fundraiser to raise money for our Indigenous fisher relatives on the frontlines to stand in solidarity in honoring Treaty 1752.
These earrings were part of a personal auction to raise money for Black Visions Collective.
In the month of June 5% of sales were donated to Women for Political Change who holistically invest in the leadership and political power of young women, trans and non-binary folks.
