WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This weekend women can join together to stand up for a cause, while sitting down to craft.

You can head to Life Community Church from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday with your favorite Pinterest appetizer in hand to share. Organizers say they wanted to pair the social media site with a good cause.

All the crafts you create will be sold to benefit the Centre of Redemption, a new safe house opening for survivors of human trafficking.

Everyone will find something fun to make. “Things that are simple, anyone can do and then things for those who love to craft it up, they’ll have a challenge in what they love to do, too,” Pinterest with a Purpose’s Erin Blair said.
