Sienna's Crafts to Conquer Covid-19

Location: Online at go.rallyup.com/siennascraftstoconquercovid

For this year's 5th grade exhibition, I wanted to focus on COVID-19, because it is on every one's mind right now. In order to help further research to find a cure for this terrible virus, I decided to make necklaces to sell and raise money to support COVID-19 research at Cleveland Clinic. First class shipping via USPS is included for free. I hope that with research support, scientists will develop a vaccine that will end this virus and keep people safe.

All proceeds from the necklaces I sell, and any additional donations made through this site, will go to the Cleveland Clinic for research on COVID-19.
