***THIS IS A LIMITED EDITION ITEM FOR CHARITY***
This special edition dumpling (original sketch mandu, or Korean dumpling) scrunchie is a collaborative effort between artist Nancy Pappas and foxey silks in support of "Dump The Hate," a virtual dumpling-making fundraiser fighting against anti-Asian prejudice and violence.
Spearheaded by Jannell Lo, chef blogger of My BF is GF, it has raised over $102,000 with close to 40,000 dumplings made for the Asian community.
Nancy Pappas is a freelance illustrator and digital designer based in Brooklyn, NY and Seoul, South Korea. Nancy's approach to her work is the result of a life of travels, filled with connection, culture, and food.
ROUND 1 - RED: 50% of proceeds from the sales of this (red) scrunchie will go to Heart of Dinner, a New York-based charitable organization that exists to combat food insecurity and isolation within the city's elderly East Asian American community. Volunteers work to deliver care packages of hot lunches and fresh produce every Wednesday, lovingly paired with a handwritten and illustrated letter in their native language to bring warmth and comfort.
***UPDATE: $1,000 was donated to Heart of Dinner***
ROUND 2 - GREEN: 50% of proceeds from the sales of this (green) scrunchie will go to Asian Community AIDS Services, a charitable, non-profit, community-based organization located in Toronto, Canada. ACAS provides safer sex education and services to the East and Southeast Asian communities and support services to persons living with HIV/AIDS and members of the LGBTQ communities.
