2 Flash Fundraisers & COVID-19 Updates
Minneapolis & Protesting Police Violence Flash Fundraiser
Many Persistent Stitches listings are currently available to claim with proof of donation made to the Minnesota Freedom Fund or any bail fund nationwide. Protests against police brutality have been necessary in recent days but come with heightened risk of spreading covid-19 as protestors are arrested and held in custody. Bail funds enable activists to work for faster release and do everything possible to keep already vulnerable communities safe from further harm. View all eligible listings.
COVID-19 Flash Fundraiser
Many Persistent Stitches listings continue to be available to claim with proof of donation to any local-to-you covid-19 (coronavirus) relief fund. We support getting cash into the hands of local communities in need as quickly as possible. View all eligible listings.
Possible Shipping Delays
Please be aware that due to covid-19 public health and safety recommendations, most of our crafters are limiting their non-essential outings and thus shipments of claimed craft items will likely be delayed. We thank you for your patience. If you have questions about the status of a shipment, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New to Persistent Stitches? Here’s how it works.
Persistent Stitches is an all-volunteer collective raising money for resistance, social justice, and anti-oppression work through crafting. Every item on Persistent Stitches is handmade by our crafters and many items are one-of-a-kind. We post items along with the name of an organization/cause that item supports and a minimum donation amount. Donations should be made directly to the organization at or above the minimum dollar amount. Donors then email Persistent Stitches (email@example.com) with:
- Proof of donation (usually an e-receipt or screenshot of confirmation page).
- A mailing address.*
- Any specific information required by the listing (e.g. your color or pattern preference).
Crafters then mail out the claimed item(s) to the donor within one week!
*Postage is free within the United States. If you are interested in participating from a non-U.S. location, please contact us to discuss shipping costs before making your donation!
