Create to Donate 2017!
Create to Donate is an arts project circle in the Twin Cities. Volunteers gather regularly and seek to build a community that creates and sells art to earn funds to support the needs of the Kenyan orphaned children and their caregivers.
With flat agates, feathers, shells, bark, beads and much more, crafters find imaginative ways to express their creative bent. The resulting artwork is sold in gift shops, art fairs and pop up craft shows.

Circles in the United States support the Grandmother Circles in Kenya. We raise funds and coordinate with the women in Kenya who are creating such wonderful community projects.
