Crafting for a cause

Posted: Updated:

Crafting for the causes of your choice.

It's the 8th annual Be-Cause Craft show hosted at St. Michael's College. The one day show features local and worldwide organizations some as far away as Africa, Guatemala and India. Vendors are required to donate a minimum of 50 percent of their profits to a charity of their choosing. Some donate 100 percent.

1-hundred 10 vendors came out for Saturday's show -- including 13-year-old Caleb Dudley. He created small charms out of polymer clay. He's giving all of his profit to Mary Ella, a toddler from Burlington in need of a kidney transplant.

"Her kidneys aren't working, so we're raising money so her dad can give her one of his kidneys." explains Dudley.

PJ Neverett was a proud organizer of the show, "How can you get this many happy people together all spending money for charity and having a good time? It's a win for everybody. we're able to help charities in a way that we can't individually. We are also able to help local artists selling their wares and getting their name out there."

Organizers say they hope the show will raise at least 20 thousand dollars for charity.
