DC based jewelry designer Mary Clark Gaston is on a mission. She's using her creative talents to end homelessness in DC. She's donating 50% of all her jewelry sales on Etsy between now and November 20th to support Open Arms Housing. Visit her store online HERE and check back over the course of the month for new pieces.

On November 21st Mary and thousands of DCers will walk in the Help the Homeless Walkathon on the National Mall. Last year over 16,000 walkers invaded the National Mall and raised $5.6 million to benefit 164 Washington metropolitan area homeless service providers. You can join Mary and thousands of your DC neighbors on the Mall as they walk to put an end to homelessness in DC. CLICK HERE to learn more about how you can support Open Arms Housing (DC068) as your beneficiary organization.
