In conjunction with the American Cancer Society's campaign for More Birthdays, Etsy and Craft It Forward will be making cards at the Etsy Labs in Brooklyn.
Sadly, that is a long commute for this Angelino. However, on their site they have information about how to start a meet up where you live as well as tips for running a top notch craft night. (My biggest tip of course is to put on some good music, have some great friends over and pop open a bottle of wine.)
Craft it Forward is running the crafting that night and if you visit the Etsy lab site, you can download project instructions so you can participate in the comforts of your own home.
The idea is that you make any kind of paper project, "pay it forward" to someone in need, and then upload a photo/description of the story behind the recipient and you get a change to $500 for yourself AND for the charity of your choice.
How cool is that???
