Stage Craft For A Cause

The mission of Stage Craft for a Cause is to connect theatre fans to theatre actors they know and love through forms of art other than performance for the purpose of donating money to a variety of charities and support artists.

How it works

We theatre actors often have crafty hobbies outside of performing. They can help us calm nerves, relieve stress, promote mindfulness, pass the time, and provide us with another creative outlet. Two of mine specifically are cross-stitching and painting.


But why can't my hobbies be something that can also help others? So I came up with this idea. Theatre fans can bid on items from actors and a portion of the proceeds with be donated to a charity/organization of the actor's choosing; not only helping the charity but also supporting the artist. My hope is to continue to expand this, reaching many actors and fans across the theatre community.

Below are the items currently available with a brief description of the item and the charity it is supporting. Each will have a link to more information about the charity and also a link to eBay, where you can place a bid and see additional details about the item(s) as well as more photos.

"Every dollar you give can provide at least 10 meals to families in need through the Feeding America network of food banks.

Feeding America helps provide meals to people in need through a network of food banks and helps address root causes of hunger.

Feeding America is leading the fight to end hunger in our nation. Not only do we feed people facing hunger, but we also raise awareness about the issue, advocate on behalf of our neighbors experiencing hunger, and conduct in-depth research to better understand the problem. Together we are working to break the cycle of poverty and hunger."
