Ramadan's the perfect time to help make a difference in the lives of
others and we've got just the project that you should be part of. You can
donate sewing machines, crafting tools, books and materials at Craft Land for
their initiative called Trade for Aid for the RAEY community project.
What is RAEY? A community school for children in Ethiopia whose
families suffer from extreme poverty and illness, the organisation aims to
strengthen the family and the surrounding community through income generation
and educational projects. One such source of income and education is crafting.
We suggest raiding your cupboards to check if you have an old sewing
machine (one that's in working condition of course) or a bag full of wool or fabric
that can be given away for a good cause. Plus, if you donate your sewing
machine, Craft Land will give you 10 per cent off a new
one as a token for your generosity. All the more reason to be generous!
donations should be made during Ramadan to Craft
