Projects & Tutorials to Change the World

Are you a Maker that Wants to Make the World Better? Do you Crave a Purpose-Filled Life? Are You Tired of Waiting for a Better Tomorrow and Want to Take Meaningful Hands-On Action? You've Come to the Right Place.


From trend analysis to issues research to organization vetting, we spend over 100 hours on each project to ensure that you only work with trusted and impactful charities.


Every great solution is built on relationships - that's why we get to know not only each charitable nonprofit we work with, but also the crafters around the world that want to make a difference.


We believe that handcrafted projects send more than just assistance - they send love, community, connection, and solidarity with those in need. Crafting Change is at the heart of what we do.

Uniting crafters and makers with charitable organizations for community driven volunteer world changeWe’re Carmen and Kristin, aka Mamas Aina, and we’re the founders behind Aina Giving. Aina Giving is the movement of makers and creators to use their talents to make this earth of ours a better place. We spend our time screening charities and developing diy projects & tutorials to help people in need. By combining impact-driven nonprofits with the makers movement our community takes diy action to change the world with our own two hands. We hope you love each and every project, and we hope you join us in our movement for community-driven world change.
