I've just made a new LiveJournal community dedicated to crafting for those in need. It's a personal swap/swap angel sort of thing! You can read all about it here: http://cheerycraft.livejournal.com/profile

Basically, if you have a friend or family member who you know needs a good up-lifting, you can post about them on Cheery Craft and wait for a response. The response will be several packages at the doorstep of that friend or family member, who is now incredibly bouncy on account of the caring and encouragement that was knitted, crocheted, sewn, pressed, pasted, painted, or printed into every card or package (or at least, this is the idea).

If you have a depressed daughter or a hurting friend, they can all do with a little cheery crafting, don't you think?  Grin

I'm really hoping this community kicks off and is a bit hit someday. Please, if you're interested, join! While this isn't a community to receive tangible gifts, the gift of giving is so satisfying.

But I have planned in the future for there to be "The Cheeriest of a Month." This person will receive some sort of prize or package or crafted love from me. Or maybe I can compile a sort of donation, or just buy something myself, such as is done with Craftster Challenges.

If anyone has any questions or comments, please let me know!

While this isn't on a HUGE charity or social cause scale, and more on a personal one, I hope this is the right place to put this Cheesy

Thanks for your time!

EDIT: As you may see, I am in desperate need of promoting banners! I would love anything tangible (like business cards!) that I can send along with swaps I'm doing. Graphic banners are good too, for LiveJournal promotion, as well as on my site and anyone else who is interested in promoting. I would greatly appreciate LiveJournal avatars (anything to go with the theme) and even eye-pleasing banners for the profile page, since all I have now is colourful text. All you Photoshop-savvy people, I need you! Please PM me.

I really love this idea! But I don't know if I can take part in it unless people post for folks in Australia, because postage is OUCH internationally. I will def signup though. Smiley

Awesome! I'm hoping that we'll get a wide variety of people in, from all over (like bday_packages). Plus, some people are willing to pay that postage, if you ever happen to have a friend or family member in need ^_^
