Craft For A Cause You Care About

Imagine the impact of a simple act of crafting: 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. At Crafting Change, we're more than just crafters – we're craftivists. We match the love of crafting with tangible good works for those in need.

Crafting Change was born out of the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, when crafters rose to meet the challenge of sewing masks desperately needed by healthcare workers and other frontline heroes. Recognizing the power and passion of crafters, Crafting Change has built a model to harness this power and tangibly impact the lives of those in need.

Since our founding, we've delivered over 200,000 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. From handmade masks to blankets, each item lovingly crafted by our volunteers ends up in the hands—or on the heads—of someone who needs it, changing lives one stitch at a time.

But our work doesn't stop there. We're constantly innovating and expanding our reach, finding new ways to make a difference in the world. Whether it's through a virtual knitting and crochet circle, a local crafting event, or a global initiative, we invite you to join us in our mission to craft change and create a brighter future for all.
