Made4Aid Month

GG will be highlighting Made4Aid in October. We bid & won a charming vintage embroidered tablecloth in August 2009. We can, therefore, recommend the site without reservation. It is great fun, the beginning bids are more-than-reasonable, & payment is easy through Paypal or by check. You do not have to live in Britain to participate. (We don't.)

From Made4Aid's blog:

"This is a new project [begun this past summer], raising money for charity through online auction of good quality, handcrafted items. The items for sale are donated by crafters and artists (amateur and professional) throughout the world or by anyone who has handmade items (new or vintage) to give. All proceeds will go to charitable work and aid organisations.

The organisation is run by volunteers and is entirely non-profit-making, with all proceeds initially being sent for relief work in the refugee camps in Darfur.

We are registered members of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, membership number 11190.

Visit the official Made4Aid website for more information."
