Kershner Trading Gives Back

One of the things I've quickly uncovered in my first week at my new job is that Kershner Trading is a giving organization.

Tonight's event at 10,000 Villages of Austin was a fun way of showing their charitable side with proceeds going to Caritas of Austin.

A few employees really got into the holiday spirit by doing their own rendition of Feliz Navidad!

10,000 Villages of Austin is an amazing little shop in Austin's So-Co (South Congress) neighborhood filled to the brim with great artwork, home decor, toys, clothing, jewelry and more. Each piece indicates the country of origin and many of them have information about the artisan, but if it's not clear the store volunteers just input the item code and can give you a full story of its maker.

They host benefit evenings for various Austin non-profits and the holidays seems like the perfect time to not only holiday shop, but to do so and benefit a great cause.
