I've been involved with a group called Craftivist Collective - who campaign using crafts.

Their latest initiative is with War on Want's 'Love Fashion Hate Sweatshops' campaign.

I made my own banner (first time stitching lettering!) which you can see here...

Let me know what you think!

You did wonderful! New to lettering, or not. That is beautiful. And the fact that you donated it to "science"? Even more prescious. I hope many people see it and believe it. I don't like sweat shops, either. Great idea. Much like the book people are doing with leaving a "happy read" in various places. I need to come up with a good reason to leave something in my neck of the woods.
