I shouldn’t proclaim that this is late, but when something is 25 days late, you should just own it. I’ve been quite busy lately as a freelance designer (which is fabulous) as well as doing boring things like house stuff, etc. Yes, some fun mixed in as well, but the fact is that I didn’t have barely a second in July or through most of August to work on this month’s desktop calendar. And it is what it is. BUT you do have a glorious six days to thoroughly enjoy this little beauty. And because I was late, I so generously create two versions, one plum and one orange-rust. Pick your fancy. I choose plum.
More than color options, the August calendar is all about the rights to an education and all that one can do and change in this world once educated. There are so many people who do not have this basic right available to them or the supplies and means necessary to take advantage of that right. Just something to think about as we haul ourselves or loved ones back to school this month.
Thirsty is going to donate 10% of all purchases through August 31 to a classroom project on DonorsChoose.org. If you’re interested in donating independently, the organization seems like a good one. You can find a project that interests you, donate to it and know exactly how your donation is helping students.
