If you’re crazy for crochet, nuts for knitting, or passionate for pottery, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is giving you a chance to show off your crafting skills, raise money for charity, and win cool prizes during its “Craft for a Cause” promotion.
Simply create an item using the craft of your choosing – a quilt, sweater, mittens, doggy dish, blanket, etc. - using materials from your local Jo-Ann store. Then donate your crafty creation to your favorite charity such as a woman’s shelter, animal rescue, or soup kitchen.
Finally, log on to Joann.com/craftforacause before October 30 to fill out an entry form and submit your receipt and photo(s) of your donated item(s).
The top five entries – based on quality, creativity, and the usefulness of the item for the chosen charity – will win a $1,500 Jo-Ann gift card. That buys you a lot of wool.
Charities with the most donations will be eligible to win up to $50,000. The top three charities will be voted on by crafters across the country at the store’s Web site between November 7 and December 4.
