People like to craft for different reasons – it’s fun, it’s relaxing, it’s cheaper than going to the mall and buying a pre-made piece. But what if you turned your passion for crafting into something more than just a hobby? What if it became a way to help other who may be less physically or mentally able than you?
This is exactly what Linda Shoaf Ashby is doing with Note Worthy. Ashby’s program allows intellectually disabled students to channel their creativity through paper making. This is both therapeutic and fun for all involved. Plus it allows the crafters to gain confidence in their work. Everyone deserves a chance to get creative and practice new skills.
Another great aspect of the program is that all of the projects are sustainable and completely green. Helping the Earth and others – does it get any better?
Note Worthy is an award-winning program that has even been featured in a Miami Herald article as well as on local news stations. The program has expanded into three new schools and will hopefully keep growing.
