Remember Others

With the sale of each plate, two dollars are donated to help fund Alzheimer's research and support programs. These plates are not only a beautiful, understated artistic touch to your table, but also a wonderful way to always remember and help others. Celadon charger plate shown below stars plate is sold separately. Handcrafted in Pennsylvania, each plate is hand cut from pre-consumer/ post-industrial recycled glass, then color is hand screened onto the glass. The plates are fired and sandblasted for texture. Each plate comes with a certificate about the "Plates With Purpose™" program.

Made in

Since 2005, Plates With Purpose has raised awareness for and donated over $150 thousand dollars to twelve non-profit organizations. Founded by Mary Irwin-Scott, President of the Riverside Design Group, it's a family-oriented company that takes community service very seriously. Irwin-Scott's daughter and Riverside Creative Director, Cassandra Ott, frequently collaborates with her mother and father, as well as Pittsburgh architect, Grant Scott, to design plates for various agencies and causes. Some Riverside beneficiaries have included the AIDS Task Force & Persad Center, Pittsburgh's Habitat for Humanity, and Court Appointed Special Advocates, a volunteer organization that helps abused and neglected children. Artist Judy Smilow also lent her design to benefit the Alzheimer's Association and honor her father after his long struggle with the disease. Each product in the Plates With Purpose line is simple, clean and inspiring, adding a delicate touch to any table and community awareness to the home.

        This platter is beautiful. I gave it as a gift to my Mom, and she loves it. She uses it all the time, for appetizers and also main course presentation. The added element of the charity that goes along with the platter really makes it special.

          Comments about Plates with Purpose - Forget Me Not Platter:

          I bought this plate for my mother - her mother had Alzheimer's. She loved the idea that part of the gift's cost went to help an Association chapter. And every time she uses it, she thinks of her mom. It shows up on the dinner table when we have family gatherings, and is displayed with honor the rest of the time!

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was great - I'm pleased the packaging was very well done, and the item was well protected.

              This was a birthday gift for my sister, the day she received it in the mail, she immediately called me to thank me for such a thoughtful gift. It felt good to give her a gift and do something for a good cause at the same time. She said that she will be giving them as chirstmas gifts this year!

                  The plate is large enough to hold lots on bite sized hors d'ouerves or a good sized serving platter. Pretty enough to keep out for display also.

                      My Mom received this plate for Mother's Day and she loves it! It's beautiful and it has a special significance because of the organizations that some of the proceeds go to. It's also quite large, larger than I expected but that's not a problem.

                        I love the platter's design (I purchased the forget-me-not platter), and especially love the fact that my purchase helped a very good cause.

                        The platter is big enough to serve hors d'oevres on at a special event and beautiful enough to hang on the wall.
