Anyone can buy unique handmade items from made4aid and know that the money they spend will go to aid and relief work.


made4aid is a non-profit-making organisation,  raising money for aid and relief work,  through the generosity of creative people around the world. Handmade art or craft items - or materials - can be donated to made4aid and will be sold online to raise money for aid. All proceeds go to the relief work of Médecins sans Frontières (aka Doctors without Borders).  You can find more information about where the money goes here.


made4aid is a website with a linked blog where you can see the unique handmade items and artwork sold between June 2009 and February 2010. In Autumn 2010  a made4aid Etsy shop opened,  where we will continue to sell.

made4aid will be (we hope!) a hub for links and resources on handmade art and crafts.

A quick introduction:

made4aid is a new fundraising project launched in June 2009.

On this website you will find information about the History and background of this non-profit-making charity organisation. We aim to raise money for charity and aid work through on-line sale of handmade art and craft items.  We sell handmade jewellery,  artwork, felt, cards, clothing and accessories, knitting, weaving and other textiles, art prints, patchwork. Also supplies for hand-made arts, crafts and hobbies. Items for sale are donated by all kinds of creative people who make things either for fun, as a hobby, or as part of a business.  On the Overview page we explain how made4aid works.

On the Donating to made4aid pages you will find information on the kinds of art and craft work which might be donated to made4aid - the things which we will be selling online. There are guidelines here about possible items to give and instructions.

If you want to look at the lovely artwork and crafts which have been sold so far, please visit the  blog made4aid, which gives full descriptions and details of the items sold in our first year.  From September 2010 we are selling similar and new items in a new made4aid Etsy shop.

For information about the charity and aid projects we are supporting, see the Charity information page. We will keep this page updated with information about the money raised so far and about the charity and aid projects to which the money will be given.

If you can help to advertise and promote this fundraising project with people who are interested in art and craft, please see our promotion page for information about how you might be able to help.

We will be adding links, on the Links page, to other websites which contribute to charity through art and craft. We will also list websites which are interesting and useful for artists and crafters - sources of ideas and inspiration, websites and blogs which give tutorials in how to make and create.

We hope you will spend some time exploring this website and that it gives you all the information you need about made4aid.  If it doesn't, please do contact us!
