Crafting For A Cause

In this hard time, we're all feeling the pinch. Sales are low and every dollar has to be stretched a little further. In these times, it's hard to remember those who are less fortunate, and because of this, everyone's hurting a little more than usual. And yet, my good Etsy friend looked past her own needs and created a 100% charity Etsy shop!

JollyJennifer just recently created crafting4causes, an Etsy shop that relies on item donations from fellow artists and Etsy-sians and then takes 100% of the procedes and donates them to a given charity.

Every couple of months, the charity to be donated to will change, making sure that the good will gets passed around. For the month of August, the charity will benefit her local food bank.

I was privileged enough to be asked to be one of her contributing sellers and just shipped away several donations for her shop. She plans to add many more items in the weeks to come, and her shop promises to have tons of variety. Already, she has been given a stuffed kitty, several tote bags, some tags and odds and ends, and I personally donated 2 cards, a set of mini cards and matching envelopes, and 2 glass tile pendants.

So please, stop by this amazing seller's shops and see what she has to offer, or convo her and ask to contribute your own bit of good will.

Happy crafting,
