What Are You Doing Wednesday

If you've been keeping up with the blog, you already know that I have recently really felt that God was telling me to use the gifts and talents he has given me to help the less fortunate. I have been ABUNDANTLY blessed in so many ways. While I'm by no means "wealthy" or "rich", my husband and I live comfortably and don't have to worry about whether or not we can pay the bills. I have also been blessed with my creative abilities. Without Him, I would have and be nothing.

So, to make a long story short, I have decided that for EVERY BABY ITEM I sell in my shop, whether it be a bib, burp cloths, crochet hat, or whatever, I will donate one of those items {bib, burp cloths, crochet hat} to Hope Unlimited {a local Christian organization that aides women with crisis pregancies} or to our church's ACTS House, which gives free clothing and homegoods to families in need in our area.

Through this, I hope I am able to bless someone in a small way, as I am blessed daily. This also means I need to get more items in my shop, which is something I always put off. I love creating but hate listing. Boo hiss. If only I had an Etsy fairy...

*Profits from my shop will still go to the child I am going to sponsor through Compassion Int'l.

If you have any other ideas of ways I can use my craft for the greater good, please let me know! I'm always interested in new ideas. How do you give back?

Here are some blogs focused on using your crafts for the greater good:
