Since 2006, The Handmaidens have been raising money for local charities at The Handmade Market. Several of our very talented artists donate their beautiful handmade wares and we assemble them into raffle baskets. Tickets for a chance to win are $3.00 for one ticket or $5.00 for two tickets. 100% of the proceeds go to the charity at each event.
For our Spring Handmade Market, we are proudly supporting The Beehive Collective.
“The Beehive Collective is a giving circle that awards grants to nonprofits working toward making Raleigh a better place. Members of the Beehive Collective are also interested in supporting and promoting the development of women through leadership opportunities. By pooling our resources and organizing fun events, we raise money to fund community projects. Since 2008, we’ve given away more than $150,000 in support of causes ranging from public transportation to youth healthcare. If you’re ready to inspire and support young women leaders, help some of the most deserving causes in Raleigh, and have a good time doing it, then we’re the group for you. Come join us!”
To date, we have raised over $13,000 for the following non-profits:
• Interact • Food Bank of North Carolina • Women’s Center of Wake County • Hospice of Wake County • Animal Kind • Wake County Autism Society • SAFEChild • Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC • Triangle Land Conservancy • Meals On Wheels • Toxic Free NC • Inter-Faith Food Shuttle • Raleigh City Farm • Urban Ministries of Wake County • The Scrap Exchange • Triangle Pets Alive • Read and Feed • Activate Good
