If you are reading this, you know the world is literally and figuratively on fire. I mean here we go again, another hashtag started trending and we all witnessed the horrific murder of George Floyd. You have to agree that things must change
As stated in a previous post, I couldn’t just knit no matter how hard I tried. Everyone was/is uneasy, I never imagined I would live through these days. I kept getting asked the same question over and over again. “How can I help GG?” My response to that question can be seen in the video below:
My answer was simply, yet complex. My answer will force a change in every fiber in your being because the gap starts at home. The gap starts with the children. This is why I am super excited about this collaboration with Magpie Fibers.
The proceeds from these beautiful tumblers will go to The Conscious Kid. This organization focusing on bringing Anti-Racism into the schools. They focus on the babies and THAT is where the gap starts!
I hope you will join me by grabbing a mug to support this fabulous cause. We must all stand in the gap, so our children won’t have to do this again. It’s time for racism to be history.
I will leave you with this final thought. Today is Juneteenth. Juneteenth marks the day the last slaves were freed in 1865. Here we are in 2020 and I still ask myself this question. Are we really free?
Stand in the Gap
