Katzenson’s also invited vendors to join the effort by donating $1 for each order written by Fine Lines.

The effort expanded even further with outreach to agency partners and support from Just Got 2 Have It! and Sugar B Sales. Other contributing agencies and vendors: Denik, Designworks Collective, Enewton, Homesick Candles, Infinite, She, Jellycat, K Hall Studio, Meri Meri, Poppy Handcrafted Popcorn, Rock Scissor Paper, Skeem Design
