Crafting for a Cause
For dedicated crafters such as ourselves, it can be incredibly tempting to make a card out of every set of paper that you buy. DO IT! There are so many opportunities to craft for a cause and combine your love for paper crafting with acts of service.
If you’re a part of the Country Craft Creations family and following us on social media, then you’re aware of our recent efforts to support an international cause - the war against Ukraine. The team at CCC researched extensively to decide which humanitarian aid project would make the best use of the funds raised and decided to choose The Project Dynamo Mission. Our craft family blew us out of the water with their interest in helping us support the people of Ukraine, and bought out all of the exclusive paper collection that we created in honor of our little humanitarian aid mission.
The Heart of Courage paper was designed with Ukraine in mind. The 8x8 collection is drenched in a gorgeous palate of the most captivating deep blues and yellows, the colors of the Ukraine flag. The design also includes sunflowers which are Ukraine’s national flower. Throughout Ukraine's history, the sunflower has been used as a symbol of peace. For those who were able to get their hands on a pack of this stunning paper, you can continue to craft for a cause by making cards to be donated to veterans in need through It’s A Military Life’s Veteran Penpal Project.
The Veteran Penpal Project matches you with a veteran community such as veteran centers, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and VA hospitals with pen pals around the world. Your acts of kindness are overwhelmingly uplifting to those looking for a compassionate reminder that they have not been forgotten and their service is still appreciated.
