The fundraiser runs through March and April and will raise money for The Green Project, an organization based here in New Orleans that salvages and recycles building supplies and other materials. Their work, which provides low cost building materials, has become particularly important as this area works to rebuild following Hurricane Katrina. The fundraiser also raises money for Recycle for the Arts, a subset of The Green Project which offers recycled art workshops and provides recycled art materials to local artists, schools, and art programs.
In order to help encourage donations (no amount is too small!), I’ve rounded up some great donated handmade goods, including many recycled items, to be given away to one of the participants who donate to this fundraiser, who will be chosen at random. Link and Link.
