What's New?
The Crafting for Good Blog

Crafting for good is about helping yourself and others through creativity.

Visiting this site and purchases from our not-for-profit shop all help our community work. We like to think of it as "Robin Hood crafting" - those who can, helping those who maybe can't.

eBay for Change

We're delighted to announce that we are part of the new eBay for Change programme launched today.

As one of the first 50 businesses, we are receiving an in-depth package of support over the next 12 months, including zero fees, one to one digital skills training and significant marketing investment to bring buyers to these businesses. eBay aims to positively impact thousands of jobs and livelihoods over the next three years.

Our goal is to increase our capacity and scale up our online business, selling donated and carefully chosen art and craft supplies, to create opportunities for jobs, training and volunteering.

We'll continue to promote positive mental health and creative wellbeing in as eco-friendly a way as possible while our shop in The Ridings Shopping Centre, Wakefield continues to distribute surplus creative supplies for free to community groups and organisations.

Our Impact - Earth Day 2021

Crafting4Good CIC exists to benefit 2 things - mental health and the environment.

crafting4good cic mental health and eco-friendly social enterprise

The two influence each other. In 6 months we received 565kgs of unwanted art and craft supplies (and that's just from when we started counting, in August 2019 until the first lockdown).

These unwanted supplies either go into our shop in The Ridings, Wakefield UK, our new eBay store or are given for free to community groups and organisations.

The shop supports jobs and provides affordable craft supplies, the free goodies support many to enjoy the benefits of creativity.

Thank you to all the individuals and companies who support us 💚 🙏 ♻️

Happy Earth Day 🌎
