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 or business can commit ahead of time to give a certain percentage of all their revenue from the market to benefit a good cause. 

For Spring of 2022 We #StandWithRefugeeswith 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 millions of 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!

   HOPE BEYOND THE HEADLINES

 

Makers who have taken the pledge or donated thus far for the Spring 2022 Season (Sales from March-End of June).

Supporting these Makers means a part of your purchase will be supporting refugees! If you are a maker in our market reading this or a patron who would like to join us, you can still support the refugees with us - Here's the link to see the campaign and support refugees in need!

Previous Pledges:

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!
