JULY 2021 WE CARE WEDNESDAY

We renewed our sponsorship of the Be Seen Project to kick off July and we wanted to highlight this mutual aid organization founded by Mindy Tsonas Choi. The Be Seen Project resources and amplifies BIPOC artists and makers who are using their work to center marginalized voices and create social justice and cultural change.
"We can not change what we can not see. Here's to powerful ways of seeing and being seen."
From producing an excellent podcast, providing BIPOC artists and makers micro-grants to continue their work, and organizing/planning/moderating the Disrupting Craftivism quarterly conversations, this project has already done so much to make real change in the craft community. We are proud sponsors and participants. We know producing podcasts, zines, and putting in hours of work on websites and social costs money. We hope that by making the Be Seen Project a We Care Wednesday recipient we can further directly fund this important work. You can donate directly here. Participate in one of the Creative Call to Actions highlighted like Midori Plates. And find out more about initiatives and checkout the BIPOC artists and makers the Be Seen Project has been amplifying on Instagram.
*Since launching the We Care Wednesday initiative in January 2017 we have donated over $44,500 to a variety of nonprofits doing essential work in our community as well as other places. From the Mayor's Disaster Fund to Girls Rock Boston to Movement Voter Project and Found In Translation. We select organizations that we feel represent not only our commitment to a better, more equitable world but also our desire to "do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can."
