For the second year in a row, I am giving to the Looks for Life Fundraiser at my favorite Maryland salon, Looks Salon. Each year, Looks partners with Grassroots Crisis Intervention in Howard County, MD, to raise funds for suicide prevention services. In addition to a silent auction – which is where our jewelry set and gift card will be raffled off – the salon sells advertising space at their hair styling stations to local businesses and holds an event with discounted salon and spa services with proceeds going to Grassroots.
As you may recall, suicide prevention is a cause that is especially close to me after losing my childhood friend and fellow artist Josh Hutchinson last spring. I consider it a privilege to give to an organization that works to restore hope and save lives, and am honored to think that my creative work could contribute to those efforts.
If you’re in the Howard County, MD, area please consider coming out to this event. You’ll get pampered for the day (at incredible prices!) and know that the money you spend benefits a worthy cause! Check out the photos of the jewelry and basket I designed after the jump!
