Here at 42 Nerdtastic Place, we believe in kindness, love and charity. There are two primary ways that we try to raise funds to help various causes: charity designs (click to view designs) and auctions.
Auctions are run every few months through our Facebook Insiders group. You will be given the option to bid on various items with a portion of proceeds going to the stated charity. In the past, money has been raised for "Random Acts" and "Standing Rock".
Every so often a movement speaks to us. It then becomes a necklace, keychain or something else all together. These designs are then placed online with a portion of it's proceeds going to our quarterly charity. 15% of all sales from our charity designs will be donated. View all our designs here.
Here's where we stand so far:
2019 Q1 - We will raise money this quarter for a classroom on DonorsChoose and for Meals on Wheels.
2018 Q4 - We will continue to raise money for classrooms on DonorsChoose.org because we believe in the power of education and know that education is underfunded in many (if not most) states. We will also split our charity donation for Q4 with Deborah's Place (a women's shelter in Chicago). We donated ($100) to help fund this classroom and women at Deborah's Place.
2018 Q1 - We will pick a classroom from DonorsChoose.org and help them towards their goal. ($42)
2017 Q4 - Random Acts ($75), Greater Chicago Food Bank ($25)
2017 Q3 - We were originally raising money for the ACLU but with all of the damage done to Puerto Rico, we decided to donate to AmeriCares to help get relief to the people impacted by Hurricane Maria. Thank you for helping us raise $100.
2017 Q2 - "The Crib"/The Night Ministry in Chicago ($50)
2017 Jan & Feb - "Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance" ($270) thanks to our Carrie Fisher & Elizabeth Warren designs. And thanks to you!!
2016 Q4 - To Write Love On Her Arms ($350), Deborah's Place ($350), Greater Chicago Food Bank ($190) thanks to the popularity of the Nasty Women Necklaces
2016 Q3 - Random Acts ($30)
Of course, anybody can tell you anything about what they do with money. If at any time you would like to see our donation receipts, please contact us and we will be happy to provide them.
