Scarves for a Cause

Philanthropy- goodwill to fellow members of the human race; especially: active effort to promote human welfare.

I have always believed in giving back to my community and working to promote a better life for our neighbors in need. To that end, I love working with non-profit organizations, designing, producing and selling limited edition scarves and other accessories and donating a generous portion of the sales to help raise funds for the causes they support.

There are a number of ways to do this including: 1) an existing logo can be used (with permission, of course) as a starting point for the design, 2) a design utilizing an organization’s colors can be produced without using a logo, or 3) in the case of a church, a photograph of a stained glass window or other artwork can be taken and manipulated or recreated by hand to create unique wearable artwork that has special meaning to members of the congregation.

There are many options, limited only by our collective imaginations. If you have an idea, I’d love to hear about it. Please keep in mind that our goal is to create a work of wearable art that will appeal to as many potential buyers and supporters as possible. In other words, we want it to have meaning to your cause and be commercially successful.

Charles has been involved in many beneficent organizations over the years. He was a member of Rotary International for 20 years, has served on the board of the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Smoky Mountains for 10 years and for eight years coaching, refereeing and being a board member of the AYSO soccer organization.
