Have A Heart Scarf
The Have A Heart scarf idea was created to give us an opportunity to give something back to our communities. Each unique hand made Have A Heart scarf is created by us utilizing re-purposed fabric from the production of The Pocket Poppet. $5 from the sale of each scarf is donated to organizations benefiting children. The grey and black scarf shown in the current picture is made from the charcoal and black bamboo rayon blend remnants that we cut from the Lotus Poppet. Each scarf is finished with the signature ‘PP’ clench tag and a little bit of love in the form of a small red heart ( cut from the Red Wine remnants ) sewn on the back.
The mission of H&K The Poppet Company is: To Inspire and design To create and connect To grow and give. In that spirit, we pledge that: for each purchase of a Have A Heart scarf, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to various organizations .
Our initial fundraising & contribution benefitted the South Eastern Wisconsin Juvenile Diabetes Foundation chapter http://sewi.jdrf.org/ an organization close to the hearts of a family in our community ,whose little boy is affected by this frightening disease.
Our 2015 /2016 contribution is to FEEDING AMERICA There is no season- ever - that people should go hungry, especially children. Feeding America is the nation’s leading hunger-relief organization feeding over 46M each year, including 12M children. We will continue to donate $5 from the sale of each Have A Heart Scarf to Feeding America and do our small part.
Our Have A Heart Scarves sold so well this Valentine’s Day 2016, that we were able to purchase and donate much needed text books to the Illinois Youth Center. We were vendors at the NCLB Conference this January and were privileged to meet many passionate and dedicated teachers. One of them , Brenda Martin from the Illinois Youth Center, touched our hearts. She has been teaching for many years and is severely lacking in the tools needed to help these troubled teens. We heard that she had not had text books since 2005! It was a no brainer to source some needed Life Skills Math text books for 15 of her students.
Our scarves are made in limited quantities and are now hand sewn by a lady named Arazeli in Chicago. Arazeli needed work and our paths crossed. We are happy to be helping in a small way by giving her work making our Have A Heart Scarves. The more scarves we sell, the more work we can give Arazeli and in turn a larger donation to organizations in need.
