K Squared Artisan Boutique has temporarily closed their doors in light of the COVID-19 epidemic, but we still plan to support our local artisans! Our inspirational co-owner, Katy Colvin, came up with the brilliant idea to purchase gifts from our local artisans and make wellness gift bags for local healthcare heroes. What a perfect way to support all sides of the community!
"Our doctors, nurses and hospital staff are the real action heroes of this crisis. We have an opportunity to lift their spirits and show we really care. Please take a moment to join us in supporting our local heroes and our local small artisan businesses."
- Katy Colvin
Katy has already organized a GoFundMe in order to raise the money to purchase the wellness gifts. For every $10 donated, we will be able to put together a wellness gift for one hospital worker.
With the help of our friends, family, and artisans, we managed to raise enough money for 200 wellness gifts! On Monday, April 27, we donated those gifts to both Wellstar Kennestone and Wellstar North Fulton hospitals. This small act of kindness really resonated with the nurses we delivered these to and we all exchanged air hugs (our first time ever doing this)! We only wish to provide more to even more healthcare heroes.
That being said, we know that times are tough and money is tight right now, so please do not feel pressured to donate. Another way you can support our cause is by sharing our GoFundMe fundraiser via Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, email, or wherever you see fit.
We have the chance to lift spirits and make our healthcare heroes smile, even if it is just for a moment. The most important thing right now for us it to give back to our community and support as many people as we can!
