Thank you for reading my blog and learning more about Giving Artfully. What is Giving Artfully? It is my way to connect my two passions: crafting and philanthropy. It is a platform where crafters can find crafting volunteer opportunities and for community organizations to post handcrafted needs.
I am always looking for ways to give back and after spending an evening with a dear friend who is one of the crowdsourcing pioneers, I wondered if this idea could be broadly applied to sourcing products versus money. Instead of people coming together to finance a venture, why couldn’t people come together to fulfill the crafting needs of an organization? After many months of thinking of this idea, I decided to put it to action – I would never know if it would work unless I tried.
At Giving Artfully, we aspire to make the volunteering process simpler by:
- Allowing crafter to easily and efficiently browse volunteering opportunities that fit their skill set thus avoiding the need to visit many separate websites
- Finding all essential information and requirements for donating (i.e. pattern, yarn/thread type, etc.)
- Providing the ability to commit to donating on the website
We also aim to be another alternative for community organizations to procure the handcrafted goods they need.
