The amount Jaclyn1423 raised for autism in April is …

1 May

… $109.50!

I’m ecstatic and so, so happy to have broken $100 for Autism Speaks. It’s a little shy of last year’s total — $159.13 — but that’s because the breakdown is different. Last year was the first time I debuted ANY Joey’s Hot Dog jewelry, and the bulk of that $150+ was from necklaces. I debuted bracelets this year, but the bulk was from general sales.

I’m sending the check this week, and I thank everyone who made a purchase from Jaclyn1423 in April to help me break $100. This means Jaclyn1423 has raised a total of $323.63 for Autism Speaks in one year. That’s incredible!

The necklaces and bracelets will remain in Jaclyn1423, but I’m not sure how much longer they’ll stay. After a year, it may be time for something else. As soon as I figure out what — or as soon as I figure out when Jaclyn1423 will begin to phase out the hot dogs — I’ll let you know!

In the mean time, there will be more items in Jaclyn1423 that include a donation to Autism Speaks. A friend of mine recently gave me a whole bunch of amazing vintage costume jewelry from the 1950s and ’60s. In return, all she told me was: Donate a portion of each to autism. Well, I can do that.

So far, I’ve listed one of these donations: This incredible accordion bracelet. It’s in amazing condition: All the faux pearls are intact, and the joints work so very well. Fifteen percent of this and every other listing from Joyce’s stash will go to Autism Speaks.
