Hello kind krafters!
My name is Steph, and I’ve had the privilege of being able to work with kind krafts this summer as their Krafting Kamp and Membership Coordinator. I am responsible for hosting a krafternoon kamp at the Keshen Goodman public library once a week - which I’ll write about another time! I have also been keeping busy with my other responsibility, which I am realllllly excited to write about… our KIND KLUB MEMBERSHIP! :)
In September, we plan to launch our brand new membership program called the kind klub!!! This is a phenomenal chance for you to support kind krafts, our partnered locations, our art-based workshops, and our cause of the season! This summer I have been going around shops and restaurants of Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford, Lower Sackville, Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, and have been in contact with local makers/crafters, creating a partnership that we hope will help kind krafts grow!
Cool, right?! kind krafts has been reaching out to potential partnered locations that share our same values and daily operations such as community, sustainability, art, and wellness, as well as spaces that are ethical, transparent, and safe. Businesses have been given options of different ways that they can support us...
So, what does this mean for you? DISCOUNTS! Purchases that give back to kind krafts! Going through and supporting our check-list of amazing partnered locations! Supporting our HRM community and kind kraft values! :) What does mean for us? This will be the first time that kind krafts will have actual, sustainable, reliable funding. With more funding, we can increase our programming which means hosting more art-based workshops, creating space for leadership skill development, creating more krafts, renewing our insurance (which allows us to run these programs), pay for room rentals and community spaces, and ultimately give more to our cause of the season with increased craft sales. We can GROW!
Have I hooked you?? The plan is to have our partnered locations sign a one-year contract with us, running September-September, with the option to renew. Our kind klub members will be able to purchase a kard that will last for one-year after purchase. They can be purchased on our website primarily, or at our tablings/special locations that will be posted online. Our kard prices are:
We are all so excited about this new venture. This membership program will contribute to the overall sustainability of our Halifax community by bringing folks together through art, relationships, and through raising awareness about many social and environmental injustices. We hope to be able to exchange values with our partnered locations and our kind klub, support local businesses through collaboration and promotion, and have reliable funding so that we may grow our grassroots organization!
I invite you take this journey with us! Our soft-launch lasts until August 31st and you can pre-register right now on our website! We even have a sneak peak of our list of partnered locations. When we officially launch on September 1st, you will be the first to support us, our partnered locations, and our community.
Also, let me know what you think! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org , or comment and tag businesses or local crafters/makers that you would want us to partner with, and kindly, spread the word!! :)
