Craft For A Cause You Care About
Imagine sewing a reusable menstrual pad that helps a middle school girl in rural Western Africa stay in school. Or crocheting a winter hat that warms the head of an unhoused man on LA’s Skid Row, or one fighting for freedom in Ukraine. Crafting Change is a 501c3 non-profit that matches a crafters love of crafting with tangible good works for those in need. Crafters becoming activists-or ‘craftivists.’ The ultimate matchmaker~Crafting Change takes the items lovingly crafted by volunteers and delivers them to well vetted organizations helping those in need. Every item crafted ends up in the hands-or on the heads-of someone who needs it. Changing lives by crafting.
Crafting Change was born out of the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, when crafters rose to meet the challenge to sew masks desperately needed by healthcare workers and other frontline heroes. Recognizing the power and passion of the crafter, Crafting Change has built a model to harness this power and tangibly impact the lives of those in need. Crafting Change has delivered over 138,000 items made by craftivists in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and Canada to organizations in every state, and internationally to Canada, Nepal, Ghana and Ukraine. If it can be made, it can bring joy, comfort, or support to someone in need.
