in this blog post, I am explaining what is going on with Sew-Geek and Charity.
for the past 10 years, I have tried to donate monthly to a charity. I say tried because over the past year, it was not possible. Last year Sew-Geek was hit hard, in January I lost my sublimation printer due to the freeze and power outages here in Texas. Then in July my laser my broke and I had to replace it, thank goodness for Glowforge’s amazing customer service. And then also my heat press went out. On top of that we dealt with a renovation in our bedroom due to a frozen pipe that burst above it in the attic.
So yeah needless to say it was a doozy. Because of some of those things, my mental health wasn’t the best and I struggled to keep up with all the requirements to run a successful business, but mostly social media which then showed in low sales.
As you can see this year isn’t much better.
Yup, those are my sales for 2022, which used to be sales numbers for 2 months. But I digress, we are here to talk about the charities I support. I just wanted to be transparent about why I wasn’t able to.
The main change is that I will no longer donate monthly, I will make quarterly donations. That way I can accumulate donation money and not pay out of pocket (which has happened before). I will post my donation receipts on the Facebook page and in my newsletter.
As always I am as transparent as possible. I hope that the rest of the year, sales will pick up, you can always see what charities I am donating to on my charity page. This concludes what is going on with Sew-Geek and Charity.
As always I wish you happiness and clear blue skies.
