Giving Back

Craftivism- Crafters making the world a better place, two hands at a time.

Just because you may not have millions of dollars at your disposal for charitable works, does not mean you cannot make a positive impact in your community.  This page is new, but will soon be full of ideas and links pertaining to crafters giving back, spreading kindness and making the world a better place with their talents.  

My glass shop, Alla Prima Designs, is now a partner for Austin Dog Rescue, helping to keep wonderful animals from kill shelters and finding them 'forever homes'. :-D  At Dogtoberfest (October 22, 2011 at The Domain in Austin, TX), I am donating a hand painted lamp and wine glasses to their silent auction benefitting 8 different rescue shelters in the greater Austin area.
 If you have an idea or know of a crafter giving back, please let me know.  I would love to feature them! :-D
