You know those super cool artisinal wooden maps of Philadelphia? The ones Philly Love Notes owner Emma Fried-Cassorla crafts by hand and sells on Etsy?
If you’ve always wanted to own one, now is the time. Until tonight, all sales are being donated to these seven organizations:
- Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission
- Fairmount Park Conservancy
- American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Pennsylvania
- The Fund for the School District of Philadelphia
- Black Star Film Festival
- People’s Emergency Center
- Asian Arts Initiative
Fried-Cassorla (who makes the maps in the spare time, mind you) said she typically sells a lot of maps this time of year. The campaign, which technically started last Wednesday, is Fried-Cassorla’s way of stepping up to support diverse organizations in a city largely shaken by post-election anxieties.
The funds will be divided “completely evenly” across the seven organizations, she said. As of Monday night, the campaign has raised over $4,000.
