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 (www.kindkrafts.com)
We also suggest a collaborative event between both organizations at the end of the cause so that everyone can be involved in the partnership and raising awareness about the cause!
Lastly, we make a monetary donation to said organization when the quarter is over and once we have tallied up our sales for those months. Usually, these donations range from $150-$400 depending on the season and ongoing sales
MISSION: crafting for a cause
VISION: to create unique, handmade krafts with folks in the community. Our crafts are made by a variety of volunteers, students, and community members. We then sell those crafts at farmers markets, tabling's, facilitate workshops, and host events. We utilize the sale proceeds from tabling and events to give back to local organizations in need throughout the community. Our focus changes every season to a new cause following under the categories of environmental awareness, animal welfare, and humanitarian causes. Once our focus is chosen, all of our proceeds are donated in support of said cause and our workshops/events help to further raise awareness around the focus for that time period.

kind krafts started as an idea. This idea manifested into an organization that helps many people from just one person's transaction or one human's participation in a workshop. The power of one was the original idea, how ONE person can make a difference for MORE than one person. Eventually this idea grew into what is now kind krafts! Thank you for your unconditional support and for helping the community around you. You are changing lives.
