Children's dreams come true - for real - thanks to Makeably, a marketplace for custom-made handmade items. The collaborative website now utilizes its platform for Make for Good - where everyone can fund a custom-made gift for a child in need.
The kids, all members of New Settlements Apartments, get to ask for much coveted gifts - say, custom painted shoes or a dinosaur pillow. Designers and creators will make it, while the masses can sponsor the project. Sponsors can also add their input and discuss the product in the works, offering their own ideas.
Crafty creations meld with good spirits in this collaboration between Makeably and New York Cares to give children holiday gifts that are more meaningful. [Source: Makeably]
