Giving Back

I believe art and creativity can heal, support, and help. A portion of proceeds from every piece I create is donated to non-profits to support the important work they do. 

WHO ATILIAY SUPPORTS

Each item is paired with a non-profit and a portion of proceeds is donated to that specific organization with every purchase. These are the main organizations Atiliay proudly supports:

The Ebongalethu Educare Center Preschool & Nursery, Motherwell, South Africa // Valentine’s Day and various all occasion cards provide nutritious meals for the 60 babies an toddlers at The EEC. Atiliay is the sole sponsor of this school and committed to providing meals for all the children there on a monthly basis as long as the school is running! As of the end of 2021, we have raised over 200,000 meals with your help!

Kiva.org, Worldwide // Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards provide Kiva micro-loans to mothers and fathers around the world! The loans help them improve their businesses and support their families. To date we have funded 118 loans for dads and mom entrepreneurs in over 36 countriesPhoto below is courtesy of Kiva.org and shows loan recipient Zeenat who has an embroidery business.

Chilis On Wheels, Brooklyn, NY, USA // Fall and winter holiday cards help Chilis On Wheels provide a nourishing bowl of vegan chili to those in need of a warm meal. Their headquarters are in NY and they have chapters in San Diego, Portland, Denver, and Puerto Rico. They extend their compassion to both humans and animals through the work they do. Photo is courtesy of ChilisOnWheels.org. To date we have helped to provide over 100 meals!

The Lange Foundation, Los Angeles, CA, USA // Cards for our furry friends help The Lange Foundation rescue, care for, and find loving forever homes for dogs, cats, and other animals in need. I have seen first hand the life saving work they do and am an adopter (Lucci and Bernard were both from Lange!) and forever foster mom (to the best kitties–Bubba, Makani, Jefrey, and Samone). I am excited to start supporting them!
