The Giving Tree

Trees provide shelter from the storm, and you can too when you purchase these beautiful frosted plates, made from recycled glass. With each plate sold, $2 are donated to benefit Court Appointed Special Advocates of CASA of Allegheny County and CASA National which provide community volunteers to advocate in court for children who are victims of abuse or neglect. Not only are these plates helping others, but they will also bring an understated, artistic touch to any table. Handcrafted in western Pennsylvania. Each plate comes with a certificate about the "Plates With PurposeTM" program. Citron charger plate shown below tree plate is sold separately.

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.

      Great platter from a great company! I plan to give the plate as a wedding gift, and I know the couple will enjoy it. The color is much lighter than in the website photo though; it's a bit misleading.

          Comments about Plates With Purpose- Trees Platter:

          I've given 2 Plates with Purpose for bridal shower gifts, in keeping with typical registered items but with my own flavor. The plates are gorgeous, a nice size, unique and therefore memorable, AND they reflect my giving nature. If you are giving it to the person yourself (not mailing directly), just be sure to open it up and remove the bountiful shipping wrap. You'll save the giftee a lot of time... although the suspense was amazing the first time!
