There are a lot of worthy causes in the world. Most of them would like some money, too. But if you’re looking for a cause that’s not too big and where you can see real good done for specific people, you could do worse than take a look at Regretsy today.
You see, today they’re kicking off their second annual Secret Santa.
That’s right! Those heartless mockers of the worst of Etsy are opening their creaking chest cavities to give Christmas presents to children in need. If you know a child who isn’t going to have much in the way of a Christmas this year, you have until the seventh to nominate them. If you just want to help out, go throw some money at the problem. The goal is to help two hundred kids get some unexpected holiday magic thrown their way. Each child will receive one individually chosen present. Where possible, it will be just what they want most. Where not possible, it will at least be tailored to their specific tastes.
Oh, and since PayPal were such Grinches last year, all funds will be handled through Regretsy’s WePay store.
The craft community is good at sharing joy. Let’s all do our parts.
Oh, and if you know of a craft-related charity/program you’d like to see supported, feel free to let us all know about it in comments.
