    I Teach for Dog Food

    Here is a suggestion for those who occasionally do free demonstrations, talks or even classes. Rather than do a
    "free" class, ask for a donation for the local food panty or animal shelter. I recently announced such an event and because there had been a request for pet food, we ask for such items. At another group recently, we ask for food for the local food pantry and got enough food donated to share with three pantries. Even members who were not attending the class gave. So lets not do our craft "totally free" but ask for something needed in return.

    when I do a commission, I ask that the check be made payable to the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. I have a friend who is very active in this event in her town so I make sure her team gets credited for the money.

    What a fantastic idea! You are truly to be commended for thinking of it and for sharing it! I know I would gladly contribute, even if I wasn't taking the demo or class.
