Good morning everyone! I am so excited to share a wonderful project that has slowly been coming to life in the last month or so. Kelly Bristol, whom many of you know as National Stationery Show’s Show Manager, recently approached me about starting a stationery charity that could be a force for positive change, and before I knew it, in Mary Poppins style, she had assembled a board of women I’m so thrilled to work with.
Our mission statement? Writes for Women is a society for paper industry professionals who aim to engage, motivate, empower, and educate themselves and others on economic and social justice for women, while raising funds for efforts for social, economic and equality nonprofit programs.
So, go here to buy your ticket(s) already! HUGE, HUGE thanks to my partner-in-stationery-crime Kelly, as well as Mel Morris, Lisa Roberts, Natasha Bhagwanani, Stephanie Clarke and Juliana Tyson and of course HarperGroup for scrambling with us to get it all together. You all deserve so much more credit than my tipping my hat to you here, but right now I’m scrambling to write this so we can share this with the stationery world! I am so proud to be working alongside this most dynamic, talented group of women to make a positive difference in the world. I hope to see you there!
