Can I buy a tea pot and support a charity at the same time?
You want a new tea pot, but you'd like to spend your money where it could do some good. Are there any charities that sell one of a kind or artistic tea pots that you could shop for? There are several options for people who want to give back as they are adding a beautiful new tea pot by a talented artist to their collections. To find tea pots or other tea themed art pieces that have a charitable tie in, you should:
- Check auction sites. Many celebrities enjoy giving their time and talents to worthy charities by making something that can be auctioned off. Sometimes, the item being created is a tea pot or other tea related item. It would certainly be fun to casually mention that you are brewing tea in a tea pot designed and painted by Patricia Arquette or another television star the next time you throw a party and a guest admires your new find.
- Look for fair trade shops. You can support an artisan in a third world country and find a beautiful piece for your collection at the same time.
- Make your own contribution by buying goodies for a tea basket from mightyleaf.com when you shop for a new pot. Then, donate the basket to a local charity so that it can be auctioned off to raise much needed funds.
