craft show

I did my one and only craft show this year last weekend. It went really well and it was a great experience as I am hoping to do at least 2 next year.

The event was in someone’s home, which took a lot of the pressure off in some ways. The whole premise was “gifts for good.” All the vendors had to agree to donate 20% of sales to a charity of their choice.

I chose to donate my sales to the Lola Children’s Home in Mekele, Ethiopia. You can read more about it via the link, but essentially it provides a home and care for HIV+ orphans and their siblings (whether they are infected or not) in the hopes of keeping the family together as much as possible.

And…when I reopen in 2013, 5% of my monthly profits will be going to this home. It is my hope to give back a tiny bit of what God has blessed me with in my life.

  1. Love your displays and set up. So very cool to be giving back like you are to such a really cool thing. I love the good that comes from outstretched hands and making for the right reasons. Profit for family, but for someone else’s well being as well. Rock on, Daisy!
