I have started creating a website & an online shop, Sewing for Shelter. I plan to place my handmade crafts (tote bags, hair pins, belts, clothing, etc.) on the online shop, and I will give all proceeds to Habitat for Humanity. I have contacted Habitat through email for permission to use their organization's name on my website, and I am waiting for a response. Has anyone ever worked with Habitat in this manner? Did you find that they were helpful?
I am also looking for some fellow craftsters to donate their handmade goods to the shop! Habitat is an excellent organization, so I hope that they will permit me to use their name on their site. Your donations can be anything, as long as you made it. "Sewing" is a key word, but handmade is really what I am shooting for. Donating would be an excellent way to show your customers that you are dedicated to serving the community. It will also be an excellent way for you to advertise your online shop/auctions. Most importantly, it's a great way to donate to an excellent organization. I will post a link to your site next to your item, and I will also have a page that consists of links to the websites of the contributors.
I really hope that Habitat comes through for this! If not, I will attempt to find a similar organization to donate to. If you are interested in donating your handmade items, please reply to this thread or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much, everyone
Happy Crafting! <3
