May is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month and we invite you to celebrate with us!
Here is everything going on!
#1 - THE WINDOW
For the next month, our window will celebrate stories that have been submitted by our AAPI customers, friends and family. Favorite memories, traditions and reflections have been submitted and shared in the window. We hope you will come by and enjoy reading them. If you would like to share a story, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is an example:
#2 - DONATE TO WIN
Local ceramicist, Keumsook Hahn, has donated this gorgeous ceramic plate, (value: $340, approx 12") to raise funds for the AAPI Community Fund and one lucky person will win it. Our goal is $1,000! Can we do it?
Email your receipt to email@example.com by May 31st.
#3 - HEMLOCK PARK MATCHING FUNDS
Our best- selling candle line will be matching funds on all Hemlock Park purchases during AAPI Heritage Month! That's right!
For every purchase of Hemlock Park products, they will make a donation to the AAPI Community Fund, up to $500.00!
We hope you will come see the window and check back for fundraising updates!
Thank you so much for your support of the AAPI community and our efforts to share culture and educate the community.
As an Asian-American, I am so grateful to be a part of a community that embraces and supports all humans.
*The AAPI Community Fund was started to benefit trusted organizations that are addressing the urgent issues that face the AAPI community as well as broader, systemic problems. With the donations received through the Fund, GoFundMe.org will issue grants to trusted AAPI organizations working to rectify the racial inequalities in our society. Already, 30 grants of $25,000 have been distributed.
