Local Giving Tree {Sponsored Post}

I am very excited to tell you about our new sponsor: Local Giving Tree! I love a great handmade deal site and this one is extra special! They not only offer great deals for quality items but they give back to local charities!

Local Giving Tree is a national deal site that offers you handmade, artisan, eco-friendly, and boutique items. Sure, other companies offer the a similar thing, but Local Giving Tree is different!  Local Giving Tree is committed to “Buying, Saving, Giving & Growing,”—and with every sale, a portion of the proceeds is donated to a nonprofit or school chosen by the artist or business making the offer, hence the name, Local Giving Tree.  How cool is it that you can shop AND give at the same time?!  Pretty awesome!

 Local Giving Tree is all about planting roots to help build up our communities with a grassroots approach!

About its Founder, Amber DeBirk & Why she Started

I am a wife, mother, artist, teacher, fundraiser, and community activist. I am married to my best friend Bill, and a mother to two sweet girls, Indy Rose (6) and Willa Grace (4), plus my old man retriever Murphy (13). I am very involved in my community and the arts. I have written grants and fundraised for numerous local and national nonprofits and started our town’s first community market that sells locally grown produce, arts, and crafts. I have been called a “sustainable” artist, as I work mainly with fused glass made out of old windows and bottles, as well as mixed-media using scrap materials. I also teach fused glass art classes through our local University.

Now where does fit in to all of this? It’s simple. I had been approached by numerous daily deal sites to offer my fused glass creations and classes on their websites. I always declined their offers, because everything that I sell, I always donate a portion of my sales to various nonprofits that are important to me and my family. I always thought it would be great to offer my artisan creations on the other “deal” sites, but something was missing…after many conversations with my crafty friends, was born!
