I’m very honored to have blogger Danielle Burkleo on SaratogaMama. Danielle has an amazing blog called ‘take heart’ that I’ll admit, I’ve been stalking for quite some time now. She’s a crafty, cool, & gorgeous mama of 3 that inspires and empowers her readers. When I learned of this Craft 4 Love event to benefit LOVE146, it seemed like a no-brainer to invite Danielle to talk about it here. (It’s also a no-brainer for me to be attending the event and I want you to come too!)
Craft 4 Love is a day where women of all ages can get together and make several projects just in time for the holidays, all while raising money and awareness for LOVE146. If this is your first time hearing about LOVE146: they are a non-profit organization working to prevent and abolish child sex trafficking. you can find out more about them here. I co-lead a local LOVE146 task force in the capital region and this is our second year holding this event.
Craft 4 Love will take place on Saturday, November 3rd from 9:30-4:00 at Temple Baptist Church in Halfmoon. We will meet in the downstairs of the church office building. Breakfast will be served when you arrive, lunch will be catered by Faldoni’s restaurant, there will be a guest speaker from LOVE146, and some really amazing raffles.
We will be making eight (or more!) different projects and all of your materials will be provided for you. the things you will need to bring with you are: scissors, a hot glue, a grapevine wreath, and cash for the raffles.
100% of your ticket cost and any raffle tickets sales will go directly to LOVE146. Last year we raised over $1,700 and are hoping to bring in even more for LOVE146 this year. The cost for attending is $35, which can be cash or check made out to LOVE146.
Our day will be filled with fellowship, food, crafting, and fun. Most of all we will join together and be a voice for those who don’t have one. We will speak justice and mercy for the children who are living the horrors of sex slavery.
I’d love for you to join us on November 3rd and be a part of LOVE146 for the day. Space is limited so register today!
