Our Giving Pledge

Each Season we, the Makers and organizers of Maker's Market at Atlantic Station, including Earth and Sky Creations LLC, plan to institute a giving pledge where each Maker can commit ahead of time to give a certain percentage of all their revenue from the market to benefit a good cause. 

For the Holiday Season in 2021. We gave pajamas and stockings to kids in a shelter at the Atlanta Mission, to make their Holidays a little brighter. While the shelter doesn't send pictures of their residents, they do tremendous work. I've included a small sample of the many pjs/stockings we gave the kids at the shelter (Over 50 sets of pajamas and over 40 Stockings which was everything they had requested), and at the bottom sharing a letter of thanks from the Atlanta Mission!

A Look Ahead...
For Spring of 2022 We are planning to #StandWithRefugees - with so many people displaced as refugees in the world from wars and brutal regimes, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is our charity of choice this season:

Recently around 4 million refugees have been forced to flee Ukraine. The IRC is on the ground in Poland supporting displaced children and families with vital supplies. And the IRC doesn’t stop there… they help refugees around the world in places like Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Africa, and even in the United States and Atlanta!

All Makers or anyone who would like to take part, please reach out to us at makersmarketas@gmail.com and ask about the giving pledge for more details on how you can join!

Below Are the Makers who have taken the giving pledge thus far for the Spring 2022 Season (Sales from March-End of June). Supporting these Makers means a part of every purchase you make with them will be supporting refugees! If you are a maker in our market reading this who would like to join us you can take the pledge anytime before June 30th and make your percentage contribution to help Maker's Market #standwithrefugees the world over!
