Kindness Kits

What is it all about?

Crafting can bring a sense of calm in a stressful environment, especially during the pandemic we are in. After finding crafting incredibly relaxing and calming during my son’s tricky birth and then a national lockdown, I wanted to find a way to give back, with something I love.

I am collecting unwanted craft kits and supplies, which will then be distributed amongst those who would benefit from them, within the community. Kits will also be made up using donations.

Wellbeing, recycling and reusing is what it is all about.

I am collecting the following items which may be collecting dust in crafting cupboards:

* Cross Stitch Kits
* Crochet Kits
* Embroidery Kits
* Knitting Kits
* Yarn/wool
* Embroidery Threads
* Cross Stitch Fabric
* Sewing Needles
* Full craft kits (unopened)
* Crafting Patterns (suitable for reuse)

Please contact me for the address to send donations at helen@allsewnupwales.co.uk

If you can donate any of the above then please do, but if you just want to donate a few pounds to support the running of the project, I would be hugely grateful!


Fundraising

I am raising money to help towards postage costs of those donating items and also for sending out the ‘Kindness Kits’ to support workers and targeted groups of people who will benefit from some wellbeing crafting.

To get the project moving, I am also planning to buy a number of small, simple kits from small British businesses who I work with already. This will help get the project up and running whilst collecting kits is hard in person when the country is in various lockdowns. This is also a way of supporting fabulous small businesses in this tough time.

Any money you can donate will be used for this project and is totally not for profit.

If you would like to donate to the project, the GoFundMe page is here:
