Come and join us for a delicious brunch (THERE WILL BE MIMOSAS!), say hi to yours truly, and hang out with a couple of awesome assisted therapy dogs, like Quentin pictured above.  You know I’ll be hanging out with the pups, no doubt.

40% of sales from our Perrito Collection as well as 20% of everything else will be going to these awesome groups.  Oh, and the venue Suburbia will be donating a portion of the restaurant sales, so you can enjoy brunch and drink all those mimosas for a good cause.

Success!! Fundación Waybi Event

After lots of prepping on design and production, we are so pleased with how the TAKE A WALK event went last week!

Held at the best textile museum in Guatemala with food, wine, live music, and of course Kakaw products, it was a night not to be missed!  Fundación Waybi was able to raise awareness and funds for their animal assisted therapy programs, and we are happy to be donating 40% of all sales from that evening to the cause.

Next step: making the Perrito Collection available online, of course always with a portion going directly to Fundación Waybi so that they can continue their work with their therapy animals here in Guatemala, helping people with disabilities live fuller lives.  Expect those cute Perrito Clutches and Wallets to be available next month!

Check out some of the photos from the night:

Perritos everywhere!

We’ve been working on something different… a collection full of dogs!  Because we love dogs, yes, but most of all because the organization Bocalán Guatemala / Fundación Waybi approached us to see if we could help them with this specific collection, with the goal of raising funds to train puppies to become therapy dogs here in Guatemala.

You see, Bocalán works internationally with dogs specifically for animal assisted therapy.  These dogs are amazing, and help people with all kinds of different disabilities live fuller and hopefully happier lives.  To learn more about the organization, check out their Facebook page.

We’re planning a local event in July to launch this collection – and soon after that, the idea is to have the products available for sale online as well, always with a portion of the sales going to Bocalán.  We’re pretty excited about this… local artisans, handmade process, high-quality and beautiful products… and now add to the list training dogs for therapy?  This is truly win-win for everyone.
