Over the last couple of weeks, we have been working on new products and envisioning the path for Handmade in 2015. During this process, we’ve taken a look at what Handmade achieved in 2014, and how far we have come since we started in 2008.
I am very proud of the products we have created, the employees we have in our family, and the friendships we have made over the years.  
Although I am very happy with Handmade’s origins and where we stand now, I would like to give back to the community by giving to those in need. Therefore, my business partner and I have decided to create a charity division called Handmade’s Helping Hand.” We will donate to charity 10% of every sale Handmade makes from our retail and wholesale customers. Our focus this year will be helping children who have experienced hardship.
Handmade’s Helping Hand’s Mission Statement:
            Make a positive impact by helping those in need.
The two charities that we will be supporting are Hope Kids and Gracious Gifts.
I am genuinely excited with this new Handmade initiative, and I look forward to all we can achieve in 2015 and beyond. Thank you for all of your support over the years. As always, shoot low.
