Hesston is our home.

The last 24 hours have been a complete shock for us. We're reeling with shock and sorrow from a mass shooting that happened in our little town, a town of just over 3,000 people.

We are a community of farmers, dirt roads, factory workers, teachers, plumbers, cops, artists, restaurant workers, students, nurses, and families.



We are a town of "those things don't happen here", and yet it did.


In our family, The Boy (14) was particularly moved. His heart is as big as the ocean is deep. "Mom, what can we do?"

My answer, "We do what we can with what we have." What we have is an entrepreneurial spirit. What we have is a small business and a willingness to help with what we have.
So together we designed jewelry.

"There's No Place Like Home" - so true for many of us, even Dorothy when she was speaking about Kansas in The Wizard of Oz.
We're offering a necklace, bracelet or key chain and 100% of the proceeds go to Salvation Army in Central Kansas.



Our sadness runs deep, but our strength runs deeper.

I'm so sorry

I'm so sorry this happened in your small town. It's happening so often it doesn't even make the national news any more. Very sad, but there are groups trying to stop gun violence. Check them out. http://everytown.org/
