If you have ever had a chance to skip back to the early years of our little blog, you might have noticed a common theme that still runs strong through the words and posts that you continue to see today… You’ll see oh so much love, heart and soul because why do anything if you don’t have these magical ingredients!? You’ll see creativity, delectable details, color, and of course gorgeous designs and patterns. For these things are apart of the MJ DNA that is woven into each pretty piece. And last but certainly not least you will see opportunities, adventures and so many wonderful projects of giving back!
This month we are so excited to bring you another beautiful piece with purpose, our Adventurous Acorn Tunic. This cute little number is one of our favorite things about our October release. Sure her fabrics are soft and buttery, adorned with the sweetest little ruffle and acorn print, but most importantly she will be creating a little magic this fall! This trusty little tunic will have 10% of her proceeds donated to our friends at the Mighty Acorn Foundation.
This organization has always been near and dear to our hearts and many of our customers from the moment MJC founders, Denise and David DeMarchis, started it so many years back. As Denise mentioned in a previous post, pretty much just one girl, a customer, asking for a donation is what started this sweet adventure. It’s funny how something so simple can turn into such a powerful mission and love of Kitale. Denise and David wanted these kids to have the same dreams and opportunities their children have had including a safe place to sleep, food to eat and an education to last them a lifetime.
As a company, we believe that we are all called to be apart of something bigger than ourselves and the more we grow as a company, the more we can give and empower women and girls around the world. At the core of our unpredictable little company is giving back and making a difference, not just in our own backyard but across the ocean and to the sweet souls in Kitale, Kenya. And none of this couldn’t have been done with each and every one of the MJ community, you are truly helping us make a difference one pretty piece at a time. “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
So, this one is for you Mighty Acorns!
Your MJC team
