What We Make Matters: My Efforts to Help those Affected by Climate Change

by Tippy Tippens

August 26, 2013


Now I’m launching three additional community-based products that give back and focus on building literacy. We have a series of letterpress notebooks with proceeds going to the “I Have A Dream" Foundation. Rabbits for Reading, a flax linen napkin set—once folded, a rabbit appears— will help raise funds for S.T.A.I.R., a one-on-one tutoring group and First Book, which gives books to schools in need. The last product is a blanket, inspired by the needs brought by Hurricane Sandy, which forms a heart upon your chest once wrapped around you—it's essentially giving a warm hug. These blankets bring you warmth while also raising funds for rebuilding communities that are still affected by Hurricane Sandy, with a percentage of proceeds going to Architecture for Humanity for their efforts to rebuild communities affected by disasters around the world.

We are currently raising funds to create these new products; please help us make them here on indiegogo. We can create change and make a significant difference in our communities, but we do have to take the steps to make realistic, often seemingly daring, sustainable decisions to do so.

This project is featured in GOOD's series Push for Goodour guide to crowdsourcing creative progress.
