A New Year...

Let's fill it with hope! This image is from the International Rescue Committee site, where I just sent our contribution from our folding project this month. Our generous Black Ink customers donated 315.00 and Black Ink matched that to send 630.00 to help refugees survive, recover and rebuild their lives. 

This is a challenging time for many, and I thank you for opening your hearts to help others. Every holiday season at Black Ink (since 1994!) I've enjoyed celebrating with OUR community, coming together and celebrating what is cherished and has grown to be a tradition for many. Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm.

Holidays upon us...

Watch out, holidays are coming up early this year! We are busy preparing and "stocking" up on those stocking stuffers everyone loves, and lots of choice gifts and cards. We ended our October folding project by sending off $450 to Lovin' Spoonfuls Food Rescue to support their important work bridging the gap between abundance and need. Thanks to our generous customers, we collected $225 and matched that.

Our November and December folding project brings the focus on the urgent international crisis in Yemen. International Rescue Committee is commited to saving refugee families in crisis. Check out their mission at:
