2018 Friend-Raiser

November 2018 - A Message from the Art 2 Heart Board of Directors

Dear Friend -

Will you consider partnering with our ministry this year? Your financial support pays the rent and utilities -- enabling us to donate 100% of the proceeds from product sales to ministries that spread God's love in tangible ways.

2018 Highlights:  So much to celebrate at Art 2 Heart in 2018! -- including moving the gift shop across the street in July to the historic turquoise house at 95 Hamel Road. Because it is spacious, light-filled, and more visible in the community, our reach is expanding.

God continued to bless the Art 2 Heart ministry in many ways:

  1. With your help, last year's fall friend-raiser met the goal of covering our fixed operating expenses, which allowed us to use all proceeds from gift sales to invest in 52 local and global ministries!

  2. Our investments in ministry partners helped provide a much-needed "hand up" - by supporting schools, business training, medical care....by creating jobs through product development and product purchases....and by investing in creative endeavors.

  3. We were also blessed with 20+ additional volunteers this year, many of whom bring new creative skills and interests. We are a completely volunteer-run ministry, and our 58 faithful volunteers joyfully invested over 7,500 hours of service in 2018 to meet the challenges of operating the ministry.

  4. God continued to multiply the effect of his blessings, as wonderful artisans were rewarded both financially and emotionally when their products were sold. Our delightful customers tell us they are thrilled to find hand-made, unique gifts that they know help support artisans and help support over 50 ministries.

Please, be part of the mighty work God is doing through Art 2 Heart -- with both your prayers and financial support.

It's your choice: (A) mail a check to Art 2 Heart, PO Box 71, Hamel MN 55340, or (B) donate securely online via the "donate" button at the bottom of this page. Art 2 Heart is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

It's not just about making and selling unique, handcrafted items. The heart and passion behind Art 2 Heart continues to be using creativity to reach aching hearts with God's love and His Good News of GRACE.

On behalf of the joyful Art 2 Heart team, we thank you for your support!
