We’re back with another edition of our Five Favorite Things, where the Coral & Tusk staff shares their monthly recommendations!
We are also announcing that we're committed to donating 1% of all sales to COVID-19 relief efforts in India for the foreseeable future. Read on to learn more about our donation pledge along with what we're reading, cooking, seeing, and listening to.

MoMA PS1 has an online lecture, Niki de Saint Phalle and the Art of the Tarot available to watch on YouTube here.
Anything for Selena artwork by Iliana Garcia
“Me siento muy… excited! to recommend the Anything for Selena podcast! If you were a fan of Dolly Parton’s America drop everything you’re doing and check out Anything for Selena, all episodes now available in English and Spanish wherever you get your podcasts.
Anything for Selena weaves together Selena Quintanilla’s incredible life and music with the stories and personal experiences of host Maria Garcia and her guests, as they explore what it means to be a Latinx American in a world with and without Selena.” - Alicia
“Gonna make and eat something (Not sure what yet- Sponge cake? Salt baked chicken?! So many options!) from the Send Chinatown Love Digital Cookbook. Free to download, but there is a suggested $15 donation that goes towards Send Chinatown Love's amazing cause.” - Jess
India’s COVID-19 crisis is devastating. Hospitals are overwhelmed, oxygen supplies are critically low, and each day the death toll rises. Our products are embroidered and produced in a small workshop in India, without our production partners we can not do what we do. We are committing to donating 1% of all sales to COVID-19 relief efforts in India for the foreseeable future. We plan to contribute to fundraisers on the Give India platform and to the Hemkunt Foundation, both organizations were recommended to us by our partners in India. We encourage you to also consider donating directly as well.
India’s largest and most trusted fundraising platform. Donate directly to a variety of causes related to providing COVID-19 relief in India, find a fundraiser here. Contribute to efforts to boost oxygen supply, send ration kits to the hardest hit across the state of Maharashtra, and donate to an effort to provide period products to women and adolescent girls in need.
Hemkunt Foundation is a non-government organization that aims to provide humanitarian aid to marginalized sections of society. The organization is based upon the most popular Sikh principle of ‘Sarbat Da Bhalla’ which means welfare for all. The Hemkunt Foundation is responding to the COVID-19 emergency by distributing oxygen cylinders to COVID patients and provides rations and relief to those most in need during the pandemic lockdowns.
