Craft for Charity – and a chance to win $500!
I wanted to let you know about a really cool charity movement that Scrapbooks etc. magazine
has just launched! It’s called Craft It Forward and it’s a great way to use your passion for
crafting to make a difference in YOUR community. A handmade card can bring smiles to kids in
crisis, a fun banner can brighten the day of adults in residential facilities and a bookmark can
encourage someone learning to read.
Here’s how it works: throughout 2011, visit the Craft It Forward website each month for a new
down-loadable pattern and suggested recipients. Make the project and donate it to a charity that is
near and dear to your heart. Then, add your story to the Craft It Forward gallery for a chance to
win $500 in cash and a $500 donation to a charity! They’ll be looking for stories to feature in the
magazine and on the website, too.
So join me and Craft It Forward throughout 2011. This month, I’m going to make Birthday Cards for the teens to use for family and friends and donate them to Homeless and Runaway Street Outreach Center .www.iowahomelessyouth.org
