The Giving Season…

As many of you know, each year between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, Garland Collection donates 10% of sales made through the GC website to a worthy organization. This year, we will be starting a little early and I wanted to share with clients and friends where we will be contributing.

Beginning today, we have chosen to donate to Everytown (, “a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities.” Everytown promotes common-sense steps to save lives in our cities, in our homes and in our schools.

More than ever, MANY organizations need support — from donations to volunteers to even awareness of what they do and why they are so important.

Throughout the new year, Garland Collection, my family and I will continue to support groups that protect our brand’s core values — inclusion, respect, compassion, integrity and the safety of our children and our communities.
