Donations to support Kind Krafts community work are greatly appreciated.

“kind krafts is a community-based non profit organization run by volunteers and community members. We facilitate art-based workshops and create krafts to sell at local shops and farmer’s markets – we then donate 100% of the proceeds to an organization we are supporting for that season. 

Our focus changes quarterly and follows the themes of environmental sustainability, humanitarian, and animal welfare. Our cause for this winter is a humanitarian one, hoping to raise awareness about Sexualized Violence. We are partnered with Bryony House which is a shelter for women and children who have left abusive relationships. 

We serve as a platform for social media exposure, raising awareness for the cause of the season, creating opportunities for change, and community involvement (by hosting art-based workshops and events related to the cause). You can visit our website to see a list of our upcoming events and workshops as an example (”
