At Crafty JAK’s we believe in making a positive impact on our community. As a small company, we have decided that the best way to do that is to support a few local charities who are doing work that we admire. We are committed to donating $5 from every regular skein of yarn and regular braid of fibre in our Giving Back collection. Yarn and fibre sales will be tracked and the money will divided evenly between the three charities and donated quarterly. To read the full story about the charities we have chosen and their meanings to us, please see this blog post.

Through a dynamic network of community outreach, tireless fundraising and generous donors, we have created a lifeline for these brave kids and their families, who struggle with the often enormous cost of equipment, therapies and programs so crucial to their development.
