Paying It forward in November

Hi friends, Last month, hurricane Matthew caused enough flooding and hurricane damage that NASA said the damage itself can be seen from space.

Luckily, while most eyes were glued to the Trump vs Clinton pre-election drama, a bunch of brave volunteers left the comfort of their homes to offer a helping hand… and while most of us are not prepared to go to such lengths, there are other *less messy* ways to support the victims in rebuilding their homes and schools.

Okay, so here’s some Good news

Creative Market has teamed up with All Hands Volunteers in November to bring you Pay It Forward 2016.

Throughout the month of November, more than 200 Creative Market shop owners (including me) are donating a portion of their earnings to All Hands Volunteers, a non-profit organization that addresses the immediate and long-term needs of communities impacted by natural disasters. To top it all, Creative Market will be giving an additional donation of $20,000 towards All Hands Volunteers.

Please help us in supporting them by purchasing some great design assets in November. You’ll be giving back to the communities who really need a helping hand right now. Together, we can make a difference.

For the month of November Curve and Pixel will be donating 50% of earnings to the cause, so if you like our watercolor goodies, head over to Creative Market now to support a good cause

And here’s a shoutout to the real Rockstars this month:

Here’s a shout out to just a few of the incredible shop owners who are giving 100% in November. A campaign like this can only be successful thanks to generous shop owners such as these ones who have volunteered their earnings to make a difference.
