Have you all heard about A Beautiful Idea? Well, I recently signed up to be a part of this AMAZING movement, created by one of my favorite bloggers and etsy shop owners: Evie Schaffer. She, like many of us creatives, has struggled with the burning question of:
"How can I use my creativity for a bigger purpose...How can I help change the world?"
To help answer that question and fulfill her desire to HELP, Evie founded A Beautiful Idea. How does it work? Artists partner with A Beautiful Idea and create a product(s). They sell product(s) and donate the money to the current charity via A Beautiful Idea’s donation center.
It is really that simple.
If you are an artist, create. If you are an art lover, support A Beautiful Idea by buying our artists’ products, donating to our current charity, and spreading the word.
F&F has teamed up with A Beautiful Idea, and will be selling something special in the shop every month for charity. Currently, all proceeds are going to one of my FAVORITE charities: World Vision to provide relief in Haiti.
I have created a one of a kind Gift Wrap Kit, made with burlap, lace tulle, vintage ribbon and a kraft paper tag. Hand crafted and hand stamped with LOTS of love...this kit will make any package beautiful! It truly is the gift that keeps on giving...I hope somebody out there purchases it and uses it for someone extra special in their life!
If you have an Etsy Shop, I urge you to create something wonderful and team up with Evie and A Beautiful Project. And for all of you Etsy lovers/shoppers out there, here is a link to all the participating shops!
