How do our Charity Campaigns work?
Each Seller is offering you a one of a kind creation marked at a special price and reserves a portion of the sale to be donated in YOUR NAME to the designated charity of the campaign!
All you do is purchase the pieces of art you want from a participating STJ seller (most all sellers are able to participate) and we do the rest! Very Generous! We have the not only thee best artisans around but the kindest too! Each item will have the sale price and donation amount clearly marked in each item description. Once the sale is completed, we take the donation amount and gift it to that charity in your name.
**Although we would often love to help many smaller, localized organizations in our efforts to make a difference, we are limited to helping the organizations that provide an online platform for us to display our donated amounts. We do this in order to ensure our customers that their funds are indeed going to the stated charities.
Previous Charitable Campaigns
STJ celebrated its third anniversary on July 13, 2011! In recognition of this very special occasion, STJ launched the Celebrate & Donate Campaign. From July 13 to August 13 a total amount of $348.77 was raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of America!
SpookyTime Jingles Holiday Soiree donated 5% of door ticket sales to WomanSpace to help victims of Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault.
Summer 2009 We collected $322.75 for the ASPCA in 1 month of art sales!
Who doesn't love to help fur friends of the world? This was a fun campaign and exciting to know we could help even a few animals that might have otherwise been abandoned or euthanized.
We collected approx $350.00 for Autism Speaks in one month from art sales!
SpookyTime Jingles very first campaign was to raise awareness and funds for Autism Speaks. Autism Speaks is such an amazing organization that has accomplished so much since only starting 4 years ago as of February 25, 2009!
We chose this foundation to be our first campaign for charity for many reasons but mainly in recognition of one of our artisans, Kristen Beason. Her son Shayne is Autistic.
Here's a scary statistic- 1 in 155 children are diagnosed with autism. Parents, caregivers, relatives and friends know the challenges of raising a child with autism. Many times, the educational and public systems fail these children. Frustration, anger, and sadness are not uncommon feelings. However, there's hope.
Hope that one day a cure will be discovered. Hope that society will embrace all individuals with special needs. Hope that your child will fulfill their dreams and lead a productive life. Please support autism research and advocacy. Through autism awareness let's work to change that statistic!
