Last night marked the grand occasion of the first craft club of the new year! *cheers*
While previous nights of gaggles of girls working on separate projects had been mightily successful (until I lost a knitting needle), this time we decided to unify the crafters with a common goal: making Valentine’s Day cards for elderly New Yorkers in conjunction with Etsy and Citymeals-on-Wheels who will bring nutritious meals, handmade greeting cards, and companionship to those in need of some extra loving this Valentine’s Day. I stumbled across the good-will event last week and needing a bit of good Karma, proffered the idea to our lovely craft night hostess, Nidhi.
So seven of us bonded together and made 26 adorable cards over the course of 2.5 hrs. And you can do the same, even if you don’t have time (talent?) to make cards, you can buy them and deliver them to Etsy. The deadline for Etsy to receive the cards is Tuesday, February 7, 2012. You can also help by donating to Citymeals-on-Wheels or by volunteering or donating to your local organization.
Intrigued by the idea? Learn more here and get crafting/buying/receiving good Karma!
