Happy February! We hope that you are staying warm and keeping well. Part of our mission at Seeds to Sew is to raise awareness about the challenges that women and girls face around the world. We often work with students who are eager to get involved and do something to help. Today, we are happy to share a message from two students at Stuart Country Day School.
Thank you, Kathryn and Emily, for ‘picking up the gauntlet’ in supporting our programs that improve the lives of women and girls!
we’re Kathryn and Emily Ix, a senior and a sophomore at Stuart Country Day School in Princeton and we’ve been volunteering with Seeds to Sew for some time now. We are both very passionate about girls’ education and women’s empowerment, so Seeds to Sew was a great match when we were looking for ways to give back.
We have established a fundraiser to raise money for Seeds to Sew, which is also a part of my (Emily’s) Applied Leadership project at Stuart Country Day School. If you choose to support it, the link to the fundraising page is copied below. There is a selection of Seeds to Sew products as well as some other beautiful items made in Guatemala and Uganda that are also sold at their shop.

In addition to the items featured on our fundraising page, please feel free check out other items sold by Seeds to Sew on their website. If you make a purchase, please make a note during checkout that this sale is to benefit the Stuart fundraiser, which will help us track the money we have raised. We will share the total raised with everyone after our fundraiser is complete.
The online fundraising page will be open February 22nd until March 5th. Please share with those who you think might be interested in supporting Seeds to Sew mission.
You’ll be able to pick up for your purchased products on March 8th and 9th at the Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart in Princeton, in the Upper School Resource Center (USRC) at 2:30 pm during flex, or at the Seeds to Sew shop in Hopewell after March 9th. If the pick up option does not work for you, there is a shipping option at checkout.
If you would prefer to directly donate money to Seeds to Sew, please use the PayPal button below, which is also available on the fundraising page. We would greatly appreciate your contribution, which will be included in the total amount raised for our fundraiser. Additionally, since Seeds to Sew is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we will send you a receipt for your tax purposes.
Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions, concerns or ideas for more fundraisers.
Thank you SEW much for your support!
We feel strongly about the work done by Seeds to Sew and we hope you will support it as well.
