I am so excited to announce Butterfly Sundries is partnering with GirlVentures to do on-going fundraising for their programs- beyond their time in my Featured Charity Spotlight! (You may remember GirlVentures as my December 2012 – Februrary 2013 Featured Charity. All the designs in the Triskelion Collection, inspired by their programs, will continue to support GirlVentures programs with 10% of the sale profits through the end of November 2013!)
With GirlVentures’ permission, I am now offering select etched designs in my Etsy shop, and via other direct sales avenues, which feature their logo. All of these GirlVentures designs (informally called the GirlVentures Collection) send 20% of the sale profits to support their programming! And you don’t have to be affiliated with their organization to purchase the designs or support their programs!
I feel so happy about the great things I’ve been hearing about their work and I know your contributions will be put to good use. But for those of you who aren’t familiar with their work, here’s a brief description:
GirlVentures is a 501c3 non-profit based out of San Francisco, CA with a mission to empower adolescent girls to develop and express their strengths. They envision a world in which girls and women are actively engaged in the leadership of thriving communities strengthened by diversity, civic engagement, healthy choices and environmental responsibility.
GirlVentures has over 4,000 alumnae from the Bay Area. Many of them have now graduated from college, started jobs, and even started families. For more information about their programming, please see their website.

I just listed the first GirlVentures Logo pendant, pictured in this post, on Etsy; many more in copper and brass will be listed in the upcoming weeks!
