Etsy Key Necklaces

This week’s feature of the Etsy shop are the Key of Hope necklaces. These $10 necklaces are made with unique, vintage keys strung on gunmetal chains. They are long enough to hang mid-torso, and the vintage feel is great for layering with other eclectic pieces.

As always, all proceeds benefit Little Known Help Zone’s monthly classroom project.

Rocio will be coming with some members from the protection agency to talk about how they work as an organization to protect worker’s rights in Philadelphia through an informal dialogue.

We are so grateful for these speakers donating their time, and the event will be catered with light snacks and refreshments.

We hope you can make it to Bryn Mawr College, Dalton 300 @ 4:00 PM on march 14th.

Christmas Bed Donation

Just in time for Christmas, LKHZ utilized the money from December successes to donate a bed to sponsored student Julio’s family. Right now, the family of 5 shares 2 beds, so this extra bed will be a huge relief for the family. For $170, Julio will receive a bed and a mattress, made by the organization Mayan Families’ workshop (that also commissions other young Mayan students in the trade craft of furniture making, supplying them with a skill and income).

If you would like to give back this holiday season, consider donating a set of sheets for $25 to Julio’s family as well. Comment below or email to learn how to donate.

Happy Holidays!
