Crafts of Compassion was started by Dr. Vashi and her two young children who started crafting and selling little tin cans when the COVID pandemic hit. In 2020, the children were able to donate $2000.00 to the COVID Recuperation Unit that was caring for homeless patients. Now 3 years later, their enjoyment of making crafts and helping the less fortunate continues.
The tin cans have currently been transitioned to jewelry. With every purchase you make of a stylish hand-made pair of earrings, you will be directly donating to Boston Medical Center.
