Beth is making art. And she is inviting you to take part. Three years ago, she lost her twin boys when she was only 19 weeks pregnant. Now, she raises money for the March of Dimes to honor them. She writes about life and love and American Idol at I Should Be Folding Laundry (beautiful blog, photography, soul, mama, the works).
A few weeks ago, Beth emailed me to ask if I wanted to be a part of an art project called June Afternoons. It is an Etsy shop in memory of her twin sons, James and Jake. She wrote the most beautiful post last week on being their mother that I have perhaps ever read.
June Afternoons is a shop filled with photos donated by bloggers and photographers. Basically, if you buy a print, a gallery wrap, or a book from the shop, Beth will have them professionally printed and sent out to you, with much love and gratitude.
“Every penny from the sale of these prints—from now until May 31—will go to the March of Dimes in honor of James and Jake Fletcher. Since 2008 Team James and Jake has raised more than $23,000 to help moms and babies receive needed care, counseling, and research that saves and sustains lives. This year, these gifted and inspired photographers from the blogging community are joining Team James and Jake by donating some of their favorite images.”

So basically, just think of it as donating a bit of money to the cause, and she will send you a free print as a thank you. If you would like to browse the photos in June Afternoons, visit the shop by clicking here. And thank you to Beth for allowing me to play the tiniest part in this beautiful and redeeming cause.
