Holiday Gifts with a Social Twist .@TGPdenver .@Art_Restart

Scarves are $55 apiece (includes shipping; no sales tax for out of state)

Looking for a great stocking stuffer? Holiday gift for someone special? Or a hostess gift for the swirl of holiday parties? Art Restart, the social enterprise arm of The Gathering Place, is transforming the lives of women experiencing poverty and homelessness through art. The designs these women create are now available on beautiful products including holiday greeting cards, year-round cards, thank-you notes, desk calendars, and fashion scarves (size is 3' x 5'). For more information or to order, go to Art Restart or contact

Art Restart was conceived to develop new revenue streams to support the vitally needed services The Gathering Place provides and is built on four principles. 1) Radical Acceptance: our artists are individuals deserving of dignity, recognized for their strengths, valued for their unique characteristics and respected for their creativity; 2) Transformation: we provide women a means to achieve self-sufficiency, earn money, rediscover their independence and believe that they can transform their lives; 3) Affirmation: our women are truly artists. Through artistic self-expression they are validated when their work sells, creating a ripple effect of confidence that positively affects their lives. 4) Sustainability: provide additional funding to The Gathering Place, ensuring it can continue to serve members in meaningful ways.

The Gathering Place (TGP) created Art Restart as a social enterprise to provide its members with opportunities to earn money and to build earned revenues.  For 30 years, TGP has offered essential resources and personal growth programs to women, children, and transgender individuals during the day.

I will also be featuring an update of a review when my cards arrive.

Cassandra's Review- At first I thought that these were not going to be the right style for my child because of the special needs there is a trick of pushing the post earrings into the earlobe and so I always try to find horseshoe instead of the labret.  I was thrilled that this store carries the acrylic because of my childs allergies to metal these are hard for me to find at a good price.  

I am super pleased with the post style and size as it was perfect and because it does not irritate the earlobe or seem noticeable my child does not bother with it.  I am one happy mom!
