I haven’t seen this anywhere yet, so I’m writing this quick update. Mary Engelbreit just posted on Facebook that her store has made over $10,000.00 so far for the Michael Brown Memorial Fund.
Plus! Also! Too! Facebook has notified her that they will restore her page intact with both the picture and comment she posted yesterday. She doesn’t give an explanation for why Facebook changed its mind, but she was assured that it wouldn’t be removed again.
She also reports that the supportive comments “far outweighed” the negative comments the last couple of days.
What’s next? Scouring Thomas Kincaid paintings for gang signs?
And to further show how ridiculous that position is, Mary Engelbreit signed off on today’s Facebook post with her favorite comment from yesterday:
“Love,Mary's store is still selling prints Mary Engelbreit Shop and donating the proceeds. Yesterday the website was slow and swamped, but she assures everyone that their orders will be filled.
Mary , A Known Subversive”
As Mary said today, "Be the change you'd like to see."
