This week is celebrating the theme of giving on Giving Tuesday.
We at Vintage for a Cause are in a giving business year-round 😊!
Whenever you buy from us, you are supporting social inclusion and women empowerment. Every donation will support our work and help us to help more people in danger of isolation.
We are launching next week a new version of the From Granny To Trendy - sewing workshop. It has been a popular way for women over 50 to meet, talk, create and learn with each other.
We have now created a set of digital workshops for care homes and their inhabitants. The instructor on the online workshop is renowned fashion designer Katty Xiomara.
Our kit will include: patterns, a step by step tutorial and some fabrics . It will give tools and manual for the care home workers to run the workshop at their facility.
Within our social inclusion mission, we will make this activity available inside 350 care homes in Portugal in partnership with Sioslife.
Handicraft Kit is a versatile tool in care homes because it can be enjoyed by users of different levels.
Doing handicraft is proven to be beneficial in many ways:
- It is good for mental health
- It encourages communication and socialization
- It encourages participation and teamwork
- It reduces stress and anxiety
- It improves both gross and fine motor movements
In the spirit of Giving Tuesday you can support your favorite cause here!
You can also buy a workshop kit for a gift and support our work all year with a membership! It is a great way to spend time together especially now when wintery weather is keeping us inside.
The kit will be available for orders on the 7th of December, 2021.
