As you probably already know, Craftivist Collective is currently working on the #imapiece Jigsaw Project, in support of Save The Children's Race Against Hunger campaign.
All details of how to get involved and the event can be found here - imapiece.craftivist-collective.com/ and the facebook event page is here facebook.com/events/129336530570756/
The aim is to stitch puzzle pieces with words that will encourage and challenge both the general public and the government to do what they can to end world hunger. With the G8 summit arriving in the UK later this year, it's too good an opportunity to miss.
Each crafter is being encouraged to create three jigsaw pieces - one to send to Craftivist Collective to be a part of a massive art installation March 2013, one to send to your local MP to encourage them to use their position for good, and one to keep for yourself to remind you to keep being a part of the solution, whether that's by signing a petition or shopping ethically.
We have until the 21st February to post our pieces for the installation & 1st March to hand over a piece to our MPs. Without your help we will have just a handful of jigsaws on a bare wall - we want thousands instead! It will be hard for anyone to not have a reaction to so many personalised messages, whether they're an MP, Prime Minister or World Leader from the other G8 countries. Check out what some craftsters have already made here [Flickr set] for inspiration. But we need hundreds/thousands more to make our crafty voice even louder and more overwhelming!
