Quickie Question: Crafting for a Cause?

By Twistie

I love a good cause. I always have. I started doing walk-a-thons for charity when I was… oooohh… about twelve or so. I’ve written my representatives, signed many a petition, written checks, collected signatures, even walked a picket line or two in my day. Activism has been a part of my life almost as long as I’ve been around.

And yes, I’ve done crafts for some of these causes. I’ve donated crafts to auctions to raise money, supplied dozens of bake sales, and for the past couple years I’ve crafted goodies to sell at my team’s booth at our local Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society.

So I’m wondering, do any of you out there craft for good causes?

    One quilt to the school auction and one quilt to the choir raffle each year – sometimes there are smaller pieces as well. But I learned that from a master. My mother makes small quilts for my choir’s raffle every year, works with her guild to make a bed quilt to raffle off for breast cancer research, donates time and materials to make countless quilts for the homeless shelter, the NICU, the youth mission trip at church. Her machine hardly cools off before starting the next one.
