Uncovered Artistry is proud to boast some small victories. After being awarded the Projects for Peace grant, Angie and I focused on creating a website for our non-profit and getting the word out that we were looking for artisans. Angie did a great job writing a press release (see an earlier blog post for Angie's advice on writing your own press release), and we were featured in our local newspapers.
We want to give out a big thank to our community, family, and friends for their support! We have received so many words of encouragement.
^Our "desk" (ie dining room table) full of letters to domestic violence safe havens and churches around the country.
We are still on the search for artisans. Once again, if you know anyone who has suffered from domestic violence and who creates some sort of artisan work (painting, quilting, woodworking, knitting, etc), please refer them to our website (www.uncoveredartistry.com).
Be on the look out for new products (all made from domestic violence survivors) on our website very soon!
