After Orange He Who Shall Not Be Named was elected, I knew I had to fight this hate with love. I decided to use the sale of Rhymes with Twee goods to fund good being done in the world. Goods + good.
I started printing a line of towels featuring messages of empowerment and love in my own handlettering.
For each chari-twee towel sold, I donate $5 split between the charities below.
Total donated as of July 8, 2017: $380
