A Charity Crafting Contest, from Jo-Ann

15 Oct 2010

If you're a fan of crafty activism, here's a contest you might want to check out.

Jo-Ann is organizing Craft for a Cause, and it works like this:

• Crafters from all over are making useful things and donating them to their favorite charities. If you take photos of what you made, you can enter them in the contest. The deadline is October 30th.

• The contest judges will choose the top five entries, and those makers will get a $1500.00 Jo-Ann gift card!

• Then, the three charities who receive the most donation entries will be finalists in the contest. Crafters will be able to vote for their favorite of these charities online.

The winning charity receives a $50,000 donation, the second place charity receives $20,000, and the third place charity receives $10,000.

What a great way to support charity crafting! If you want to enter, you can get all the details over here.
