May's Month of Giving
We give back throughout the year, but May is especially dedicated to being our Month of Giving. How better to celebrate the Spring Renewal than to pass on our blessings to those less fortunate? When my Mother died in 2011 we were left with a pile of her bills that the estate "couldn't cover." My sisters insisted that they would only pay 1/3 if they got a 1/3. Well, they got their checks from the money left over and I have yet to see one red cent from either of them. I barely made enough at my job to cover my own bills let alone my Mother’s. If it had not been for Dorothy Morrison I fear we'd given up and lost everything we owned. She helped us when no one else would. We eventually got all the remaining property taxes paid, we sold what we could to pay the monthly utilities—we survived, but there were many times we rolled pennies to pay for school field trips or gas money to get to work. We will be eternally grateful for Dorothy’s love and generosity. All she asks is that we pay it forward.
At the end of each year, we take our yearly profit from sales and give 10% to our favourite charities. Here's a list of the charities that your orders support:

Remote Area Medical
Free Medical Clinics
Many people live in fear of sickness and injury because they have little or no access to basic medical care. RAM responds to this need by providing free dental, vision, and medical care to isolated, impoverished, or underserved communities. In less than 24 hours we turn fairgrounds, schools, arenas, and jungles into mobile medical centers.
