I love being an artist and creating arts and crafts for others to appreciate. I also want to give back to my community, not just the art community but also the community I live, work and play in. With that in mind, I am giving 10% of anything I make from selling my arts, crafts and e-books to a different charity, community group or program each month.
April is Autism Awareness Month. My best friend works with a group called All Star Buddy Club that helps autistic children learn life skills through sports and activities.
I sold a little less than $150.00 from my e-books, paintings and jewelry. I will be giving All-Star Buddies a donation of $15.00. It isn’t a lot, but I’m hoping over the next year that sales will be better and next April, I will be able to give them a lot more.
