OrangeTree Project

Ryan in San Diego wrote me recently about a new venture called OrangeTree Project. "We are a group of designers that felt a strong need to give back to our community. Our goal is to serve others by doing what we do best: creating fresh, inspiring design. So we started OrangeTree Project, a line of original products that have both contemporary appeal and an inspiring message. Established as a non-profit organization (pending), OrangeTree Project uses only those funds required to maintain daily operations, directing the bulk of its earnings towards select charitable causes."

They will focus on helping local underprivileged children and families, starting with an an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. A "News" feature on the site is coming soon to let supporters know where the money raised will be used. And more products are coming soon to the shop! (Click on "products.") Here's a sampling of their lovely greeting cards.

Hi Jess, I don't live in San Diego (where your studio is) but I still would like to volunteer somehow. Let me know if I can do anything here in Oregon.

Jess said...

I don't live in San Diego either, and OrangeTree isn't my organization (though I do love the name!) I was just passing on the information. I'm sure if you contacted them (find info on their site), they'd be happy to let you know how you can help!
