I'm always on the prowl for a good idea, and if that good idea also benefits the greater good, i'm totally on board to help spread the word. I heard about Arts & Scraps through a friend of mine who had just moved to Michigan and was looking for some local causes to get involved in. Arts & Scraps is a non-profit organization located in Detroit, recycling 28 tons of industrial material into learning and creative experiences for 275,000 children annually. Arts & Scrapes offers affordable craft workshops, hosts birthday parties and assembles craft kits that can be purchased online. The organization accepts monetary donations and donations of new craft supplies and a variety of recyclable materials. I love this idea. Not only do they use only recycled materials (which is a wonderful teachable lesson for kids), but they also foster creativity and inspiration. Check 'em out!
