'Schtickle' for Charity
Schtickle—a small amount, a little bit of something
Occasionally we come across something that is much loved but maybe a little bit imperfect.
Things that aren’t perfect but still completely useful and beautiful, regardless.
This is our 'schtickle' for charity. We will be adding items from time to time so check back here once in a while to see what we have! All proceeds from items sold here will go directly to a charity.
Our 2022 Spring season fundraiser is in aid of International Rescue Committee
The proceeds of everything we sell in our Schtickle section will go towards Rescue.org
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) helps people affected by humanitarian crises—including the climate crisis—to survive, recover and rebuild their lives.
The IRC are currently in Ukraine, and neighbouring countries, supporting evacuation efforts for women and children and assisting the millions of displaced people.
