Today I'd like the opportunity to introduce you to a shop ran by a small woman with an especially big heart.
Although Kate, the artisan behind OnBehalfOf on Etsy, proclaims herself not to be a professional artist, her artwork is truly beautiful.
Kate believes in using beauty to fight back against the ugliness in our world. She uses her artwork and creations to help fight back against forces of injustice through selfless love. Ninety percent of the proceeds from each item that's sold in Kate's shop are donated to organizations that help to provide clean water in developing countries, free modern day slaves, care for orphans and provide medical help to those with HIV. Her shop and her efforts towards it were created on behalf of these people that need our help.
Through her art, Kate has started a mission to spread hope and help throughout the world and her artwork is a glowing beacon of that hope shared with everyone who sees it. Filled with vibrant colors and an ethnic style, these pieces are sure to catch the attention and inspiration of all who see them.
