1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Teddy bears? on: September 17, 2006 09:24:48 PM
My sister and I made some teddy bears for the organization Artists Helping Children, but when we weren't looking some law was passed that forced them to lose their non-proft status, thus not being able to recieve anymore donations. There's three bears - not the best quality, as we're very rudimentary sewers - but we wanted to help and felt someone would appreciate them. On their site, there's links to hospitals and shelters - but I've looked on those websites and many of the hospitals specifically request store-bought and packaged things due to the germs concern, and the shelters I've looked at are moreso looking for food and money.
So, my question is, is there an organization that will accept these teddy bears? One specifically aimed at sending crafted toys to children, or something like that? Any help is appreciated, thanks. Smiley
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / School project, need a visual, help! on: September 26, 2005 02:44:18 PM
Alrighty, so here's the deal. For school, we're studying the late 1800's to early 1900's, and for a unit wrap-up we're doing presentations with partners on new products and basically the beginning of modern culture. The topic my partner and I were assigned is early amusement parks.
We're graded on two things: The visual and the presentation. The presentation we can take care of, that's just looking up stuff. However, we want a really big visual that'll give us a lot of credit.
We only have 3 days to work on it, 1 period, which is 45 minutes, so it's can't be huge, however, I could work on it at home.
I'd rather it not be a powerpoint or poster or something boring like that, because then we'd have to make it extra extravagant in order to recieve full credit, because those things are so common.
So I was wondering if anyone had some crafty and clever ideas that could help me get an A?
