Characters, Illustrations and Felted Things by Steph Laberis

In light of what happened in Boston on Monday, from now until May 15th I am going to be donating 100% of online sales to the Greg Hill Foundation and to NAMI to help fund research and support for mental illness. I will also be donating 100% of my earnings from the Cherry Blossom Festival this weekend to the same causes.
For those who don’t know me well, I was born and raised on the North
Shore, about 30 minutes north of Boston. I have many years of happy
memories going to Red Sox games, the Commons, Quincy Market, the Theater
District, the Museum of Science, the Aquarium, Chinatown, getting my
very first kiss on the T, and visiting Copley Square, of course. Seeing
cruelty like this anywhere in the world is inexcusable but it’s rocked
me to my core to see it happening in my old home.
So go ahead! Make me weep when I have to lug tons of orders to the post office. It’s all for a good cause! Two, in fact!
