And we’ve got some really fun news to share! You probably already know that the Wild Ruffle Shop gives 20% of profits from sales to charitable organizations. And for our upcoming event, our chosen charity is Feed My Starving Children.
FMSC is committed to feeding God’s hungry children in both mind and spirit. They ship nutritious meals, specially formulated to meet the needs of the undernourished, to nearly 70 countries around the world – to the places where food is most needed. Click here to learn how you can get involved.
For those who are unable to make it to our event, you can shop Wild Ruffle now through May 8th and use the code FMSC at checkout, and those sales will be designated for this wonderful organization.
