One of the best shops I’ve found ever is April’s Army. This is where the Regretsy community shows that it’s not all mocking the talentless, it’s also about assisting the deserving. Crafters donate items to be sold with the proceeds benefiting someone in need. If you can’t afford to help with money, you can help by raising it. If you can’t make something, you can get something cool. It’s winning all around.
And it really is better to talk shit and do good than talk good and do shit.
