We’re excited to collaborate with Karen, whose journey to becoming a thriving graphic designer, illustrator, and entrepreneur included overcoming homelessness. Knowing firsthand that self-sufficiency and a bright quality of life are possible with access to housing and the support of a compassionate community, Karen has graciously offered to donate 50% of all Fish the Fox plush proceeds between November 24 and 9 p.m. on December 9, 2022 to Townspeople, for the benefit of emergency housing residents.

We appreciate Karen’s journey, work, and generosity!
