Watch out, world — I’m feeling crafty again

Crafting a Better World for All KidsI can’t believe it’s already been a year since I wrote a post here confessing my obsession with crafting and how that obsession created a special place in my heart for Easter Seals’ partnership with A.C. Moore Arts & Crafts. Time sure flies! A.C. Moore’s Make and Take crafting event is back again, and I love the theme for this year: Crafting a Better World for ALL Kids.

From now until April 27, you can support Make the First Five Count and Act for Autism, too, by donating $1 at checkout (don’t forget to thank your cashier for helping Make the First Five Count) While you’re at it, why not bring the kids to your local A.C. Moore store on April 20 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. That’s the day of their free “Make and Take” craft event, and the kids can make a Creative Hands® foam name sign to take home.

Since launching the campaign as part of its Crafting a Better World program in 2010, A.C. Moore customers and store team members have raised almost $500,000 for Easter Seals. Today, one in 88 children are diagnosed with autism, and there’s an increasing need for funding, services and support. I encourage everyone, the crafty and non-crafty, to show your support by pinning the image pictured here. You can visit Easter Seals’ Pinterest page to see more, too!
