Calling all crafters!

My dear friend (whom does not know me, so I hope it is not creepy that I call her that), from A Place Called Simplicity is calling all crafters with a heart for helping the orphans in Uganda.

The plan is simple. Donate hand-made crafts to be sold and 100% of the proceeds donated to feeding the homeless and fatherless children of Uganda. A few months ago, a blogging community came together, and collected dozens of clothes for those children, who, for the first time in their lives had a clean article clothing to wear.

But the miracle should not stop there. Please visit APCS for more information and the address where to send the donations.

Why donate? Because we were given gifts, precious gifts aside from the material items. Many of us were given a gift of creation - making beautiful things out of raw materials. Many of us were blessed with excess that we can share with those that have not. Many of us have children ourselves, and our hearts ache for those little ones that walk this life alone. Many of us want to help but don't know how.

If you cannot donate at this time, please pass this call across the VAST crafting community, on blogosphere alone.

Practical information from APCS:

What are we exactly looking for?

Wood items
Cloth items
Hair bows
Handcrafted clothing for children
Pillow cases
Novelty items
Browse around Etsy for more ideas.

There will be a link on the site {once it is up and running} for artists to click on and print out and enclose with your items when you are shipping them, but for now, here is the address and here is the information to enclose:

Ship to: {exactly as written below}

Shipping Manager11000 Brimhall Road, Suite E
Bakersfield, CA 93312

Each artist should include with your items the following information:

Your Name: Your E-mail: Mailing Address: Phone numbers: Brief product description: Product quantity: Artist's suggested donation: Additional notes:

At this moment, the non-profit is not finished {and will not be for awhile}, so there cannot be tax receipts issued for your items donated.

Because they are worth it.
