Among her many talents, Kara sells Stella & Dot jewelry. She offered to bring a trunk show to my house and to donate her commission in Chad’s memory.
I invited friends and friends of friends. We had some wine and tried on some jewelry. People who lived far away bought online, people who weren’t interested in jewelry (and some who were) made their own donations to the HRTCU Fund in Chad’s memory. People who had never met Chad read his blog and asked me more about him. I shared the photo book Megan made for us the first Christmas without Chad. The night meant more to me than I ever thought it could.
We raised $300 for Chad’s fund. And Kara wants to keep going. She’s now donating the proceeds each time she sells the Chelsea Hematite Necklace - my favourite necklace.
Thanks Kara. Thanks everyone.
