You can help to support those helping the nation’s must vulnerable whilst enjoying one of the most on-trend craft activities of the moment by purchasing Craft Buddy’s Crystal Art Rainbow Sticker kit! For every purchase of the sticker kit from www.crystalcardkit.com, Craft Buddy Ltd will donate £1 directly to The Care Workers Charity. After launching this initiative on Wednesday 6th May, they have already raised nearly £1500!
Rainbows have fast become a cultural phenomenon during the lockdown period, with families across the UK displaying them prominently in their windows, in a show of solidarity. Offering hope, Craft Buddy's A4 sized Crystal Art Rainbow stickers will offer families another way to show their support to go alongside their drawings, paintings, and craft projects currently on display. Each Rainbow sticker takes around an hour to make.
For every Crystal Art Rainbow Sticker sold, Craft Buddy will donate £1 to the The Care Workers Charity's COVID-19 Care Workers Crisis Grants fundraiser that's helping care workers across the UK access vital funding during this unprecedented time, offering much needed support for those on the front line caring for the most vulnerable people in our society.
In addition to this charitable initiative, Craft Buddy is also giving something back to its customers – by including a FREE Crystal Art Rainbow Sticker with all online orders on www.crystalcardkit.com and www.craftbuddy.shop (while stocks last). This is a great opportunity to get your hands on one of these fabulous sparkly rainbows!
Crystal Art, otherwise known as 'Diamond Painting', is a therapeutic craft whereby users place crystals onto their assigned places on the design (similar to painting by numbers) where they affix instantly! The calming nature of the craft allows the user to shut off from the world around them for a brief period as they focus on the task at hand, making it great for relaxation and stress relief. Craft Buddy is the leading UK brand of diamond painting, with a vast range including notebooks, canvases on wooden frames, cards, stickers and even kits with LED lights.The launch of the Crystal Art Rainbow sticker comes on the back of the launch of Craft Buddy's Rainbow Stamp set on Create and Craft TV, that raised over £780 for NHS Charities and sold out within the first 11 minutes of the show.
Gary Wadhwani, co-founder and co-director of Craft Buddy Ltd., commented, "during this unprecedented time we have seen people come together to support our front-line workers, with the image of the rainbow at the forefront within this. We have always found that Arts and Crafts are great activities to do at home and encourage users to explore their creativity, fuelling the mind, and offering great relaxation benefits that are needed now more than ever. The new Rainbow sticker collection will provide a dual benefit, supporting both crafters and The Care Workers Charity during this difficult time."
The Crystal Art Rainbow sticker is available to purchase from https://crystalcardkit.com/products/crystal-art-rainbow-sticker, priced at RRP £3.99 (or £4.99 with tools included).
