  • Use Amazon Smile.

2. DONATE

[list style=”list2″]

  • Make a Tax-Deductible Donation

    Although UPAVIM supports its school and daycare 100% through the sale of its crafts, our other programs rely on generous donations from people who believe in what we are doing and want to help. We gratefully accept donations and are extremely appreciative of any contributions to our programs. Donating is quick and easy (and tax-deductible.) Designate your donation to benefit a specific project or program by visiting our donation page.  Or, donate now by clicking the link below.

  • Donate Air Miles

    Not using your miles? How about giving them to us? Board members and volunteers are responsible for any travel expenses they may incur, however donations of unused air miles are gratefully accepted.

  • Join us on Social Media

    Joining the conversation on social media is a great way to learn more about UPAVIM and to share what you know with your friends and family.[powr-social-media-icons label=”Enter a Label”]

  • Host an Event

    You can host a crafts sale at your home, school, or church. As a volunteer consignee, you can choose to receive 15% of your total sales for your organization or you can choose to return all sale proceeds to create an even greater impact for our women artisans of UPAVIM! The products sell themselves, the sales are fun, and you do your part in making the world a better place! Learn more about consignment sales here.

  • Tell Stores about UPAVIM Crafts

    Talk to shops in your area – tell them about us and our website. UPAVIM Crafts does not employ salespeople to place our products in stores. We rely on word of mouth, referral links and the Fair Trade network to find retail partners. If there is a shop in your town you think would be a perfect fit for UPAVIM Crafts, tell them about us and our website. We can even send you promotional materials and a catalog to present. Contact us for more information.
