Today I want to write about a very special woman that I have had the pleasure of meeting through Etsy. Joy McCall has overcome the odds in her own life after experiencing a serious accident 8 years ago which changed her life forever. I first got to know a little more about Joy when I was unable to send an order out on time due to the problems that I was having with my toy poodle. Not only was she understanding, but was genuinely concerned about my little guy.
Well...there are certain people in life that you just click with, whether it is in your own personal life or the special connections that can be made when sharing an interest with someone that you have met online.
Joy spends some of her time creating beautiful handmade jewelry like the one above. One way that she helps a charity called Pact Sanctuary is by selling through their jewelry shop. In this organization, there are never less than 600 animals in their care from hamsters to horses, budgies to peacocks and various wildlife species.
In 1999, after serving for 5 years on the board of Operation Smile, Mullaney and his Co-Founder Charles Wang each resigned to start Smile Train.
