Giving Tuesday

Cinco de Mayo has always been important to me for two reasons: The Battle of Puebla that it commemorates was significant for the ways in which it lit a flame of realization in the hearts of indigenous people at the mercy (or lack thereof) of foreign oppressors occupying their sacred lands. Fighting against all odds, in that pivotal moment, they realized that they had the power within themselves to begin to forge their way toward a revolution that would eventually lead to Mexican Independence. Cinco de Mayo was also the anniversary of the opening of the store that I had on Murray Avenue from 2004-2017.
Oppression and aggression still abound and those in our local Latino communities need our support more than ever. I’m grateful for Casa San José for all that they do, but especially now with their Covid 19 initiatives. On this #GivingTuesday, I’d like to give #Pittsburgh an opportunity to step up to the plate while also creating beauty and staying safe. I’ll be making some videos with ideas for you to use as you #helpthehelpers ? They too, are fighting against all odds.

Join me for Tzompantli: Dia de los Muertos Commemoration

A Father’s Day Surprise

I’m featuring this wonderful monkey parent by Armando Jiménez Aragón and Antonia Carrillo Hernández to send love to all of the fathers whom we will honor tomorrow: those of our past, present and future. I’ve activated the shopping cart on the new improved website at last, in celebration of the completion of 61 individual pages of woodcarvings. Still so much work to do here, and many, many categories to go, but it’s a beginning. It would not have been possible without the devoted help of my sister Diana DiGioia, my bestest best friend forever.

Send One Your Love
