ARTprojectA is committed to giving back to our local, national and global community. One way is through ARTprojectACT, our unique program which allows our clients to select a philanthropic area of interest at checkout to which a donation will be made from the proceeds of their purchase. We also collaborate with other non-profit organizations whose mission and purpose we support. ARTprojectA.com provides a venue for them to sell their ART or wares, generating revenue for their cause, we call it ART for GOOD. Today we’d like to highlight on two of these groups.
Stairway Foundation, Inc. (SFI) strives to create sustainable programs that not only help people today, but are an investment in future generations. SFI is committed to assisting an indigenous community in Barrio Baclayan of the Philippines in an effort to help uplift them from poverty. All net proceeds from the sale of their weaving is returned to the community.
The Trailing of the Sheep Festival was started in 1996 in response to the rapid loss of farms and ranches and the rapid growth in the Wood River Valley of Idaho. The Festival preserves the stories and colorful history of sheep ranchers and herders, celebrates the rich cultures of the past and present and entertains and educates children, adults and families about the production of local food and fiber that sustain local economies and generations of hard-working families.
