As most of you are aware, Nicaraguan citizens are currently living the unthinkable horrors of their own government burning down buildings, kidnapping and murdering those that oppose them.
Our artisans are in the line of fire by living in one of the most violent impacted areas in the country. There isn't much that we can do other than continue to give our artisans work (while they can obtain the materials needed to continue working). With that said, they will need additional funds to continue to survive.
We have pulled one of our favorite collars to put up for auction, with 100% of funds (not after paying costs, 100% of the sales price) being split between our manager's family and Juan's family.
