Craft For China – Putting Creativity To Work

March 27, 2008 at 9:43 pm 5 comments

I found a blog that I believe exemplifies part of responsible adoptive parenting.  Should we adopt from afar, then we owe that country a deep and lifelong commitment to its betterment for the future.  I think this is especially true for adoptive parents to take a part in helping the orphanages.  Along comes the brainchild of blog creator and art student, Melissa Robertson.  www.craftforchina.wordpress.comCraft for China is a fundraiser for orphans in China. Artists, crafters, and other volunteers have donated their time and products to be auctioned on eBay. 100% of the proceeds will go to Love Without Boundaries, a nonprofit organization that helps Chinese orphans get medical care, nutritional care, foster care, educational help and so much more. The money raised goes towards sponsoring children or their orphanage

Consider putting their button on your blog, crafting your own items to donate which will be sold at their fundraiser, or sending in a donation.  I think this is a marvelous idea and I would like to perhaps start making things to sell at Etsy and donate the proceeds.  Maybe someday I could even start a Craft for Kyrgyzstan, or Craft for Central Asia.

    Thank you so much for blogging about my fundraiser. When people blog about it there is always a rise in attention given to the fundraiser and that is so important. Now I am going to read your blog to learn about your adoption experience!

    J’ai visité ce site sur beaucoup une occasion maintenant, mais c’est le premier que j’aie jamais commentées.

    Haut sur un tel travail de première classe et de la critique. J’ai trouvé en lui un très grande partie de la valeur et – je souhaite seulement qu’il y avait plus de sites dans le monde blogue comme celui-ci.

    Je n’ai jamais s’écarter de ce blog les mains vides, et aujourd’hui encore, je peut se sentir un peu déçu que je ne peux pas le même point de vue à un poste ou cornue qui ont été réalisés. Mais hey! Qui est vivant, et si tout le monde ou réglés sur la même chose ou ce qu’est un problème ennuyeux planète nous vivons

    S’il vous plaît garder votre top travaux.

    Ceci étant dit, et si je suis aimablement autorisés à poursuivre mes participations Je vais revoir à afficher sur votre site Web bientôt

    Cheers.
