So often we hear the negatives in the news about celebrities. And if it’s a positive, it’s the birth of a baby or a wedding…. which are great things! But what about celebrities that are using their status to give back in amazing ways? We are so excited to share about one of those today. Blake Lively, known as Serena on Gossip Girl or the beautiful wife of Ryan Reynolds, is so much more than a face on the big screen. She is the heart behind Preserve.us
, an avenue which showcases handicrafts designed and produced in the US by skilled artisans. In the first year of operation, Preserve will donate 5% of each purchase to the Covenant House
, which protects and serves homeless, trafficked, and abused youth. The goal is to provide 5,000 meals, 2,000 blankets and 2,700 sweatshirts to children in need. As the business grows, Preserve will increase their percentage donated.
Preserve is loaded with gorgeous home decor and pieces you can incorporate right into your wedding day! Enjoy shopping knowing that your purchases support a great cause and are made by artisans right in your backyard!
