I keep hearing of people wanting to find ways to help out. Blood can be donated, I did that. Word has it they have a surplus supply because people are giving blood and not much need for it right now. Staying home is a way to help, but not very satisfying.
There are some excellent artist and local businesses that could use our support. Here’s a list of some dear to my heart in Oregon and Montana mainly.
Tsunami Books – local bookstore in Eugene, order and pickup available.
Also, features Annie Heron ceramics. Annie sells at Tsunami and also through her website.
Susan Carlson – amazing mixed media artist from Missoula, MT.
Lee Rizzo, go fund me album – beautiful singer, song writer.
Sweet Life Bakery – Sisters, Catherine and Cheryl, create artistic baked goods and employ locals. Craving a cookie and expresso, open and following sanitation guideline
Paula Jeans Garden – from Paradise Montana, Paula’s lavendar creations are magical.
Steven Begleiter Photography – award winning photographer, also publishes instructional photography books.
To be expanded upon. Feel free to add any of your favorites in the comments and I’ll add them to post.
