Safety & Solidarity - Winter Challenge 2016 

Following the "Brexit" vote, many people in the UK took up wearing the safety pin to show their solidarity with refugees and immigrants - so that without a word, people may see your safety pin and know that you are a friendly face... that they are "safe" with you.

"This movement has been started in the US also, to show support and care for ALL people, regardless of race, religion, gender, orientation, or whom they choose to love... to help combat racism, intolerance, hate, and bigotry.

Stop by and pick up your free Safety Pin then share your "Safe" Safety Pin design. This challenge is just for sharing.  Pins available at no cost but $5 in store coupon does not apply this time.
