Crafting for a cause: Made4Aid

Another craft site launched today -- but this one is different. Made4Aid auctions off quality handcrafted items to raise money for charity. Right now their proceeds benefit the World Food Programme and are earmarked for refugee camps in Darfur -- the situation there is still terrible even though it's not in the news as much these days.

So how can you help? Easy!
  • Bid on one of the items being auctioned here. Right now they're featuring this handmade felted wool bag: 
  • Donate handmade items to be auctioned off. Info here.
  • Spread the word! Blog it, tweet it, tell your mom.
  • Make a cash donation. Info here.
I'll be donating some handmade jewelry. Best of luck to Made4Aid in getting this cool venture off the ground!
