water for africa

What do a few simple Christmas crafts have to do with water in Africa, you ask? Did you know that unsafe, unclean drinking water + lack of sanitation kill more people each year than war + violence? This season etsy shop Water for Christmas is teaming up with Charity : Water to actually do something about it. I love everything about this cause! It's a place you can actually spend your holiday dollars with a clean conscience. It's really a triple win: crafters can donate their time, talent, and products; shoppers can score handmade gifts and simultaneously give the gift of safe water to someone in need, because 100% of the proceeds go directly to build fresh water wells in Liberia, West Africa.

I feel blessed to have contributed a few crafts to the cause. Purchase my gift tags, paper garland, and yarn wreath--if not for the craft, for the cause. If you know of any other charitable crafting going on this year, please do share a link below!
