womancraftIt truly moves me to see how many people, groups, and organizations are out there making a difference in our community. I admit that at times I even feel overwhelmed at the thought. How can I keep up with all of them while also participating in their causes?

Well here’s one way we can all help. WomanCraft, an offshoot from the Heartland Alliance, is hosting a fundraiser to benefit their amazing cause. WomanCraft helps displaced and abused women get back on their feet by providing them with transitional paid work. They employ these women to create handmade recycled paper goods that are then sold at various events and markets. And if that’s not incredible enough, the work they’re doing has been recognized with a GreenWorks Award by mayor Daley and his eco squad.

Show your support of this amazing organization by attending their fundraiser.  And be sure to  keep your eyes peeled for their auction which will feature local indie goods, including a treat from Pierogi Picnic.
