Make a Difference

2020 and 2021 will probably not go down as anyone’s favourite years. What challenges we have endured! For some those challenges have become even more difficult in 2022.

Everyone is aware of the unprovoked and brutal invasion of Ukraine by Russia on February 24th 2022. What you may not be aware of is this is very personal for me as I am a first generation Ukrainian-Australian.

Whilst I was born in Australia, I have always had a strong sense of and pride in my Ukrainian heritage. My parents were always so grateful for the chance to make their new home here in Australia after the terror and pain of WW2 but also  regularly reminded us of our roots and the richness of our Ukrainian culture; teaching us to be proud of our history and heritage.

So, just as I have curated pieces for Beautifully Gifted from creators and suppliers that each have unique stories I wanted to share a piece of my story with you as well. I hope this gives you some insight into my decision to donate 20% from each sale to the Ukraine Crisis Appeal and how your purchase can help make a difference for a cause that is very close to my heart.

The pieces we stock at Beautifully Gifted are thoughtfully produced, respecting both the people who create them and the environment. By supporting these small businesses you not only receive something to use but also love; you support someone's dream and finally can make a real life-changing difference for others.

That is the way you can help to make a difference and to me that is a win, win!
