Lending a Crafting Hand

I was just wandering around some other Bead Soup Party blogs and found the lovely JBird's Garden. In addition to all the great jewels and beads, there's a special link to a great organization that I haven't seen before: Craft Hope. So, I did a little digging to find out about this crafty group that is doing good things one project at a time.

This week they created Craft Hope for Haiti. In just two days, through item donations to the special Etsy shop as well as lots of shoppers, they've raised over $7,000 for Doctors Without Borders, with 100% of the proceeds going to them. The medical need in Haiti right now is acute, as any of us can see.

No matter what your craft or your need for shop, click on the button below to check out the variety of goodies. They're listing new items constantly as donations come in. You'll see some of my polymer clay there soon!

And, to share a quote from a recent Craft Hope post that I really liked:

“The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” — Nelson Henderson

  1. Thank you Jenn for sharing the love of Craft Hope. Those women are working tirelessly over there to raise money and get it to where it's currently needed so desperately. Also thanks for stopping by my blog. It's always nice to know you aren't just an echo in the hall. :)
