Do you have things lying around your house that are just collecting dust and cluttering up your space? Maybe you have vast collections of things that once meant the world to you but now you're wondering why you spent all that money on them? Don't we all have bric-a-brac that has been stored in a box for years? Others may see it as new treasure!!

Do you have a bunch of old t-shirts and sweatshirts that you don't, or can't, wear anymore, but that you don't want to get rid of? Upcycling is one way to breathe new life into them! The definition of Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.

Let's take those old t-shirts with sentimental value and make a blanket or quilt out of the t-shirt logos. You simply cut matching square blocks out of the front or back of the t-shirts and connect them with other fabric. With a sewing machine and a few crafting tools, you can create a comfy blanket that reminds you of your favorite musicians, sports teams, vacations and schools. 

We know that many of you would like to donate money to Michael’s Dream Foundation, or to other causes that are close to your heart, but we also know that not everyone has the extra cash lying around to make those donations. It can be a very frustrating feeling! Luckily, however, there ARE ways you can make that extra cash to not only donate to your favorite causes, but also to help yourself at the same time. Let’s do something together and turn that frustration into PRIDE and FUN, and one of the coolest feelings there is: feeling accomplished!

Do you like to dibble and dabble and tinker around making things? Would you consider yourself to be “crafty” like that? Well, why not turn those creative hands and minds of yours into money makers? On this page we are going to give you some useful ideas and links to help get you started using little more than things lying around your own home!  

Do you have a bunch of books sitting on a shelf gathering dust? If you haven't looked at them in a year or two, chances are you will never read them again.
