Artful Giving is an initiative showcasing notable artists and creatives who are committed to giving back to charitable and nonprofit organizations. Meet a new creative each quarter and have the opportunity to purchase an exclusive piece of art with proceeds supporting the creative’s cause of choice.
In an effort to lift spirits, spread positive energy and support those around us, Artful Living and Mia have partnered with artist Henrietta Snype to bring you a variety of handwoven baskets. A portion of proceeds will support East Cooper Community Outreach.
From the Artist
“Growing up in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, basket making is one of the most important aspects of livelihood. Sweetgrass basketry was mandatory — keeping history alive and a survival art. I am dedicated to preserving the art of my ancestors and passing it on to the coming generations of basket sewers.”
About the Cause
Founded in 1989 as an emergency relief effort after Hurricane Hugo, East Cooper Community Outreach provides assistance, guidance and resources to help neighbors navigate life’s challenges regardless of race, background, economic status or beliefs.
