At every Handmade Market, The Handmaidens partner with a local charity to organize a raffle benefiting their cause. Shoppers who make a donation to the charity are entered in a drawing to win goods and services donated by local and national businesses as well as some of the artists and craftspeople participating in the event.
Our partner on May 3rd is Triangle Pets Alive; their mission is to save pets from area shelters who are on kill lists.
About Triangle Pets Alive
Triangle Pets Alive is an 100% volunteer driven rescue organization that depends on community involvement to carry out its mission. This rescue organization is dedicated to taking healthy, treatable, trainable pets from shelters. Rescued companions are first fostered in loving homes to acclimate them to the kind of environment they deserve. The fostering process is fundamental to Triangle Pets Alive’s saving the lives of the many neglected and abused pets that enter traditional shelter settings. The goal is to successfully find forever homes for each one.
Their work doesn’t stop at rescuing companion animals but also extends to educating us, the general public, about successfully and lovingly caring for our pets to keep them out of shelters in the first place.
How can you help?
From 11:00-5:00 there is no admission to The Handmade Market; however, cash donations are accepted in exchange for tickets for the semi-annual charity raffle. The Handmade Market offers guests the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets to win glorious gift baskets, each full of wonderful items and valued at $100 or more. Donations of at least $3 allow you to purchase tickets to win a basket.
