Thank you for visiting the MissMalaprop.com
Charity Fundraiser page for March and April 2007. This is the second fundraiser, and every other month we'll be picking a new worthwhile charity to raise awareness and funds for. In conjunction with Earth Day, I've picked The Green Project
& Recycle for the Arts
for the current fundraiser.
The Green Project
is an organization based here in New Orleans that salvages and recycles building supplies and other materials. Their work, which provides low cost building materials, has become particularly important as this area works to rebuild following Hurricane Katrina. Recycle for the Arts
is a subset of The Green Project which offers recycled art workshops and provides recycled art materials to local artists, schools, and art programs.
In order to help encourage donations (no amount is too small!), I've rounded up some great donated handmade goods, including many recycled items, to be given away to one of the participants who donate to this fundraiser, who will be chosen at random.
The prize pack (pictured above) includes recycled bottlecap magnets and an altered art tag from BornLippy
, pressed flower resin pendant from greenKangaroo
, blank greeting cards featuring artwork by Sharon Foster Art
, a recycled beach glass necklace from Valerie Tyler Designs
, a key necklace featuring vintage components from dejarnette
, and a recycled acid wash denim handbag and pin made from recycled FEMA blue tarp, made by me, dismantled designs
. The total retail value is over $150!
For every $10 increment you donate, your name will be entered into the drawing once.
So say that you donate $30 to The Green Project - you'll be entered for 3 chances to win! Make sure to include your email address when you donate, as that is how I will be contacting the winners. If you're unsure about this, feel free to e-mail me at mallory[AT]missmalaprop[DOT]com with your name and email address once you've donated, and I'll make sure you're properly entered in the giveaway.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support these fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
