November 21, 2015 1 min read

THANK YOU!!!

I shared onfacebook andinstagram that last weekend, with our anniversary sale, we sold blankets equalling ~2,000 hours of time spent hand-stitching! In traditional work terms (40 hrs/week x 50 weeks/year) that is one *year*'s worth of work! Unbelievable!!

In reality at Basha in Bangladesh, that has meantnew starts andconsistent work anddignity to life and areason for beingfor many more than one woman this year.

We are hoping that this momentum carries throughout the holiday season that we can continue to facilitate this work as well as getting fabulous blankets into the hands of people who will love them.

And on that note...

 

New Throws!

This may become a bit of a familiar refrain in the coming weeks, but... we have new throws (+ three new minis)!

The reality of this time of year is that a LOT of shopping happens! And, with unique items, it means we have to do a lot of replacement, and have new blankets coming in all the time. Very fun!

Time Out on New Input!

A friend recently asked on Facebook for “the most challenging and enlightening resource you have read/watched about the problem of racism in America”. This question received numerous responses within the day: half a dozen films, dozens of books, podcasts, courses, and other hubs of information resources (as well as the astute reply, “Conversation”, which is, of course, the most relational and human of “resources”).

I think that this experience was shared by most people in early June (as protests & concerns over racial injustice had reached a critical volume): so many resources, so much to learn.

But now, 2 months later… what have we done with the magnitude of worthy, fascinating, perspective-altering information & insights that have been brought to our attention? 

And this it only in the area racial injustice. In other interests & concerns: How much do we know? How much have we learned & read & listened to already?

How to Live Generously

Approximately 25 years ago (in March 2020), we did a customer/reader survey. I asked what you like to read on the blog & one of the respondents suggested a post on "living generously". What a fabulous idea and perfect for this time in history!


[The title of this post implies some kind of authority or expertise — ha! Nope, no experts here... just some thoughts on generosity from a fellow human, trying to make my way!]
