Luna-and-Stella-antique-lockets

Samples of the antique lockets Suzanne sells at Luna & Stella. This week she is participating with 500 online businesses in an auction of products to help ACLU and RAICES. One woman organizes these auctions at _stillwerise.

Lindsay Meyer Harley, owner of the online baby shop known as Darling Clementine, felt anxiety about the state of the world and decided to do something. While still running her business, she began to organize likeminded online business owners to participate in auctions that fund worthy causes. The auction in which Suzanne and Luna & Stella are providing a $200 gift certificate features 500 online businesses eager to aid organizations working to unite separated families. It ends Monday.

The way it works: you bid at _stillwerise on Instagram by putting the amount in the comments under the photo of the product you want. When the winning bid is established after the deadline, you send the amount you bid directly to ACLU or RAICES or a combination of the two, and then you send the acknowledgment you receive to stillweriseauction @ gmail.com. At that point, Lindsay tells the business owner that s/he may send you the auction item you won. (Lindsay notes, “The receipt of donation will include your name, email and amount donated, no other personal information.”)

Genius?

You can read all about Lindsay and the auctions she has managed in the last year here at Glitter Guide, here at Little Kin Journal, and also at https://www.stillwerisecommunity.com.

If you are on Instagram, follow @_stillwerise. There are so many tempting items offered in the cause of reuniting families!

I look forward to your comments. As amazing as the auction items are and as worthy as the two causes are, the thing that really bowls me over is this: one woman decided to “do something.”

Oh, my. The Power of One!
