Erika and her husband Kevin Baby Maeve FarleySadie
In her own words-
"I wanted to create a place where creative people could come together to have impact on our community. I was tired of tradition means of educating the public about charitable causes. I built a store that could introduce customers to interesting products, and at the same time, educate and inspire them to give. I choose work that I would either buy for myself or my friends and family. I encourage the artists to choose a charity that means something to them, to designate for their charitable contribution.
People come in for things like a baby shower gift, and leave feeling good, and inspired to learn more. I am happy about the movement that is starting to emerge, with people seeing the value of combining business with philanthropy. I believe that hope is the fuel for real and lasting change, and we are filling people with hope, and sending them off into the community to effect change."
