Charity Application


Handmade Canberra believes in supporting our community in many ways. This working to improve the quality of life for members of our community.

In the last few years we have supported, amongst others, Bosom Buddies ACT, Dragons Abreast ACT, Motor Neuron Disease, The Yellow Van, The Red Cross QBN, Menslink, Sids and Kids, 2015 Pink Pedal Challenge, Canberra Cat Fix, Painting with Parkinsons, Karinya House and Vinnies.

At each of our markets (held 4 times a year) we have a charity assigned as greeters at the entrances to the event. We encourage customers who attend the markets to make a gold coin donation to the door greeters as they enter the markets. The charity can also distribute information about its cause, and educate people about the issues that it is focused on.

We do a blog post about our chosen charity and share the details on our social media channels. We appreciate it if this is also shared by the charity. In addition, we ask that the door greeters hand out our own market guides to people as they enter the market.

There is an annual blanket drive at our Winter market, so that donations of blankets, warm clothing and essentials can be shared amongst charities helping those who are in need during the colder months.

If you wish to be considered for inclusion as a charity who collects at the door to the markets, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch. If you have any questions, please contact us:
