A gift idea that shares the positive view towards others. We think we all need it.
A gift box that includes 2 (1 beaded, 1 plain) or 5 pins (2 beaded, 3 plain) in a jewelry box with a bow and a write up on a #safetypin project.
You can share this simple gift with your favorite people, or with people you have hard time with. Read more about the #SAFETYPIN project below.
Note: No, we are not trying to make money on this beautiful concept. We are trying to promote #safetypin project and charge only nominal amount for the box, print of cards and cost of beading the pin by our local crafts artist (and pricking her fingers, placing beads on pin's fixed portion requires skill). You are very welcomed to duplicate this on your own and share with others.
We also ship this card with each order.
What is the #safetypin project?
Recently, putting a safety pin on your sweater became a simple, humble way of stating that you are a “safe person”. That you respect others even if they look different, have different viewpoints or religions. Started by an American woman living in Britain, the idea is spreading.
I invite you to wear it and mean it.
Even in my tiny town, my girlfriend was yelled at “Go back to whereever you came from!" while pumping gas. A girl at a local college was attacked on campus for speaking Spanish on the phone. A man ripped her headphones out, grabbed her phone and threw it on the ground. "We don't speak that here!"
This is NOT OK. That's not us.
A pin is not enough but itself. But it’s a start. It takes a stand that violent people are the minority. Wearing a safety pin show others they are safe with You, no matter what. Be a #safetypin.
