November 2022 - We Care Wednesday

Studies have also shown that Asian Americans have lower rates of cancer screening compared to other groups in the United States. Within the Asian American community, Korean Americans are the least likely to undergo screenings for colon, cervical and breast cancer.

October 2022 - We Care Wednesday

A few weeks ago, City of Cambridge Vice-Mayor Alanna Mallon reached out to see if we could gather donations for Green Street Homeless Shelter's upcoming quilting workshop. We reached out to the president of the Cambridge Modern Quilt Guild and gather here instructor, Stephanie Cave, right away to coordinate collecting tools, notions, and pretty much anything you would need to make a quilt in community. The opportunity to provide resources for this creative activity at the shelter is exactly what being in community with other makers is all about. But we also know that this is just a very small...

Our annual raffle/donation budget is limited and over the years we've found that we can make a bigger impact through this monthly campaign.

Prisoners' Legal Services of Massachusetts's mission is to challenge the...

August 2022 - We Care Wednesday

In July, Virginia participated in a discussion about running a sustainable business and giving back to the community. We talked about the We Care Wednesday effort which after five years of creating the initiative feels like something we’ve always done. One of the other panelists was really floored that this initiative was born from “politics”. (Must be nice to run a business that doesn’t feel like it never has to take a political stand…) We launched this initiative in 2017, on the heels of the 2016 election and in conjunction with our “You Belong Here” community project. It was an...
