Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? 826 MSP.
826 MSP is a Minneapolis-based non-profit dedicated to amplifying the voices, stories, and power of K-12 BIPOC students through writing, publishing, and leadership programs. 826 MSP envisions a just and joyful future where young authors create art and make change in a community that values and respects their voices and their work centers BIPOC youth voice and leadership. What young people write matters, story matters, who gets to tell the story matters, and how the story gets told matters. Giving a voice to joy, play, wonder, and creativity gives an entire generation new tools for making sense of their place in the world and for building a path to a better one.
If you don't need anything from us, please consider directly supporting 826 MSP here.
If you DO find yourself in need of anything from us, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.

THE WOLF (DON'T BE SCARED OF THE WOLF)
I am a wolf
I am strong
I am caring
People think I am bad
but I am kind
I am not scary
(I am scary sometimes)
I don’t like loud humans
I don’t like plants
I don’t like hunters
I am fierce and
a miracle to nature.
