Allora Handmade Autism Awareness Benefit Sale


There is a fabulous event going on at Allora Handmade this week. 100% of the proceeds from purchases made on January 13th, 14th, and 15th will go to Autism Speaks, an organi
zation dedicated to raising awareness about Autism and assist families dealing with it.
Jessica, the woman behind Allora explains, "January 14th is my nephew, Jonathan's 10th birthday. He was diagnosed 8 years ago with Autism, and that diagnosis has drastically changed the life of my sister and all the rest of our family - in so many ways. I figure the best gift I can give him (and his family) is a chunk of change to help solve the puzzle that is autism."

What a wonderful cause! Don't you just love the idea of getting a darling headband for yourself or buying some great earrings for your sister's birthday, and knowing that you're contributing to something like this at the same time?

Again, the event at Allora is from the 13th-15th.

A couple more details:
  • For every $10 a customer spends in the shop, they will be entered to win $40 towards a purchase at Allora Handmade ( So, if they spend $50, that's 5 entries).
  • Jessica will not be taking custom orders during the benefit so as to get purchases out the door as soon as possible.

Maybe you should tell your lovey about this event. Valentine's Day is coming up, you know...
