This year especially, MerCurios has seen it's share of success and I am truly grateful. I've been wanting to give back for a while now, however, couldn't decide on a direction.
Moving forward, I would like to donate $1.00 from each sale to charity. This would include retail sales as well as wholesale & consignment orders.
The idea is to involve my customers -- give them (you) the choice of where the $1.00 is going. To keep things simple I will offer 3 charities. You, the customer, would choose which of the 3 charities to donate your dollar to.
I need to narrow down the list to three charities. This is not any easy task as each and every charity & cause holds significant importance to its founder and the community its helps.
So who would you donate to? St Judes? Autism speaks? Stand up 2 Cancer? Coalition for the homeless? ASPCA? Susan G. Koman? Rescue Ink? And the list goes on & on... What charities are closest to your heart?
At the end of the day, I would like to see diversity & to keep the donations in my backyard (United Sates).
Based on your suggestions, I will announce the three charities on August 1st and the donations will be retro active through January 2009. They will be sent to the respective charities at the end of the calendar year.
