Christmas Ornaments For WTAE Project Bundle-Up

Throughout the upcoming Christmas holiday season, I will be partnering with the Salvation Army and WTAE for Project Bundle-Up. Project Bundle-Up serves needy children and seniors by helping them to purchase new winter outerwear to stay warm during the cold western Pennsylvania winters. I will be making a $1.00 donation to Project Bundle-Up through the sale of each of my new Christmas ornaments through December. Special thanks to Mrs. Melissa Fereday who is the director of Project Bundle-Up and supported my charitable artistic efforts. Featured below is a link to my Steel City Artist gift shop where you can peruse and make your purchase for my collection of over 250 unique Christmas ornaments available.

Personally, I have not seen many Christmas trees at the homes of family and friends with Pittsburgh-themed ornaments aside from a couple of Steelers ornaments. Now you will have that opportunity to bring the places which have sentimental meaning to you and your family from your hometown which you can treasure for many Christmas seasons to follow. There are many other themes for the Christmas ornaments which include landscapes, lighthouses, military, nautical, patriotic, religious, spiritual themes and ornaments with inspirational quotes. The Christmas ornaments would make for a perfect gift to go along with the purchase of any of the fine art prints for family, friends and co-workers. If anyone would be interested in making a personal donation towards Project Bundle-Up throughout the holiday, I will list their organization's website too. Feel free to share with family and friends and best wishes throughout the holiday season!
