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!  

Let’s Recycle for Michael! 

Why not make items out of things you already own?! Do you realize how much we all throw away in our households every year? It’s astounding! Let’s do something about that; and while you’re at it, feel free to feel supreme gratification because you are being completely resourceful and green! 

There are many free websites out there that show you how to make items out of just about anything. Before you throw away those clothes you can snip off all the buttons and then cut the fabric into 12x12 inch squares for later use. Sleeves are one of the most versatile things to save as there are many uses for recreating with them.

Craftsy.com is one of the best sites that offers free patterns to use, yet also gives you the ability to upload your own patterns to offer for sale! You can even link to your own PayPal to make some money just by sharing your patterns with a crafty audience. This site offers so many ideas so go ahead….sign up and get busy! What are you waiting for?

If you wish to make your own creations and sell them to the public, the following links may also be for you. We don’t have any “favorites” per say but we have checked all of these links thoroughly for safety. To find the site that’s right for you, please just check each of them out to see what they offer, and be sure to look for any possible fees and reviews.
