Etsy’s Australian community of makers, designers and curators have got together to #makeforgood and create a silver lining for girls living in poverty. At least 20% of the value of each item featured in the #makeforgood collection will be donated to Because I Am A Girl, a Plan International initiative.
Australia’s community of Etsy sellers care about girls’ rights and have decided to work together to help create a silver lining in the lives of girls growing up in poverty. Creatives from all over Australia are participating in #makeforgood and have created custom pieces to the theme of ‘silver linings’ inspired by Plan International’s Because I Am A Girl campaign. At least 20% from every item in the #makeforgood collection will be donated to Because I Am A Girl.
We are so proud to announce that, from today, you can purchase #makeforgood items. By shopping the #makeforgood collection in the lead up to Christmas you can help Australian Etsy sellers reach their goal of providing grants to 150 Cambodian women to start their own micro businesses and lift themselves – and their entire communities – out of poverty.
From one-of-a-kind jewellery and bespoke artworks to homewares, beauty products, and children’s toys, the collection reflects the diverse talents of Etsy’s creative community in Australia and their collective motivation to help educate and empower girls and young women in developing countries. Discover the #makeforgood collection at etsy.me/makeforgood and buy a gift with meaning this Christmas.
The #makeforgood collection is available on Etsy at etsy.me/makeforgood from 11 October until December 24, 2015.
