Here’s a win-win for you. Get beautiful jewelry that’s sustainably made with love from a surfer girl friend, Donna of Betty Belts and support a local business that was affected by the devastating wildfires in California. Luckily, Donna found her home and business still standing after forced evacuation in Ventura recently. But any day a small business is closed — especially around the busy holiday business season — is hard. Even better: she is donating a portion of proceeds on Friday to a victim of the fire they work with at Betty Belts. So, if you’re still making holiday purchases or want to treat yourself and feel extra good about it, get shopping! I just picked up sea glass and pearl bracelets and a charm for beach-loving girls on my list (and one for myself).
Friday will be another Bettybelts Cause Day and we will be donating 20% of shop and online sales that day directly to Thomas Fire Victim @theglassmanwindowwashing , who lost not only his rental home, but all of his business equipment. Dan is one of the #thomasfirevictims who doesn’t have insurance. Dan is our window Guy at the shop. His name is really Glassman (!) He’s been keeping our vintage shop windows sparkly for years now and is a fellow @1percentftp business member. Please see his page to find out how you can donate now. He’s a humble guy and it’s so hard for him to ask for help and he really needs it and appreciates it. His Venmo is: @venturawaterpoloclubmasters And his paypal is PayPal.me/Dantheglassman This picture is our little Fir Street where the @bettybelts shop is. Our shop is in the building in the lower right corner. We are incredibly lucky that both the shop and our house are still there and our hearts go out to so many who lost everything. We are doing our very best to do what we can to help the community, our customers, and our staff and just super grateful to be open again! PS If anyone knows who took this photo, please let me know! I want to thank them! XOXO #thomasfire #venturastrong #grateful #causeday #bettystrong
