It is time to check in with Craft Hope. Another link to the site is on the right colum of my blog.
Last year CH opened an Etsy Craft Hope for Haiti shop and we took items from our Etsy shops and they were listed in the shop. Buyers made purchases, we shipped the item and Craft Hope collected the $$ for Doctors Without Borders - Haiti. Over $29,000 raised and over 1400 items sold!
You can go to Craft Hope's site and find a charity you want to support with your handmade items, find a tutorial if you like and get stitchin', hooking, knitting, sewing or whatever. There is also a book all about CH. The projecs are fun and the cause good. Barnes & Noble.com - Image Viewer: Craft Hope, by Jade Sims, Paperback
You can read about founder, Jade Sims. How it works and what you can do. If you craft::you can help.
