The Handmade Consortium launched an initiative today to encourage consumers to buy handmade gifts this year. They are promoting this Buy Handmade Pledge:
I pledge to BUY HANDMADE this holiday season, and request that others do the same for me.
And they want you to visit their site and sign the pledge sheet to support handmade!
