Buy for Good: Femmecraft Jewelry (and a Giveaway!)

We all love expressing out geekier sides, but what if you could while also supporting a great cause? Today I'm really excited to share a new way to buy for good - in the form of Femmecraft jewelry! Femmecraft owner Cassie Goodwin created a line of pendants called The Enthusiasts, that's all about paying it forward while expressing and supporting your geeky passions! What could be better? Here's what Cassie has to say about the new collection:

“This is my most ambitious and personal project yet. I am a big believer in the importance of passion in everyday life, and I hope to spotlight the amazing variety of things that can bring joy to our lives and help geeks find a way to give back to the interests that give us so much.”

Currently the line features six different pendants, and 10% of each pendant sale goes towards a charity correlating to that pendant. Instead of letting me blab on about it all day, let me just show you a few ;)

Comic Fanatic - Proceeds go towards the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of the First Amendment rights of the comics art form and its community of retailers, creators, publishers, librarians, and readers.

Gamer Geek - Proceeds go to Extra Life, a gaming marathon in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Extra Life Gamers rally friends and family members to sponsor their play, and since 2008 have raised over $8 Million! (Unrelated - Extra life is something I've wanted to participate in for a long time, I only lack the ability to stay awake for 24 hours. Maybe someday!)

STEMinist - Proceeds go to The Ada Initiative, promoting the participation of women in open technology and culture, including open source software, Wikipedia, and open social media.

Cheesin' with my Gamer Geek necklace! Dimple game was strong that day.

Cassie was so kind and offered to send me a pedant of my own, and while it was a very close tie between it and Word Nerd, I chose the Gamer Geek pendant! Like I said, Extra Life is something I've wanted to participate in for a long time, and since I haven't yet I thought it'd be fun to support it in a different way. I was also really drawn towards the bright red, glittery background of the pendant. So pretty!

Here's a few more pendants the collection; History Buff, Derby Folk and Word Nerd! You can get a closer look at ReluctantFemme's Etsy shop!

Now for a giveaway! If I haven't already convinced you on how awesome Cassie is, she's also offering $35.00 credit to her shop to one (1) lucky reader! That's just the right amount for a necklace of your choosing along with international shipping! What are you waiting for? Enter below!

  1. I'm torn between Comic Fanatic and Gamer Geek!

  2. I LOVE the Word Nerd pendant. All of these are genius.

    1. No, wait. I just saw the Feminist one. I want that one, too.

  3. These are awesome! I'm with The Hungry Goat...I can't decide which one I would want!!

    Found you on A Little Bird Told Me. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love your buy for good posts! You always have great ideas. Thanks for joining us for Hump Day Happenings.

  5. My last comment seems to have disappeared... history and derby are cool but word nerd has my heart

  6. I would probably definitely go with the word nerd pendant. I love writing and I love reading books when I get the chance so it goes perfectly for me. These are all so cute though. My second choice would probably be Gamer Geek though!
