Help Fund Scholarships With #KeepCraftAlive T-shirts
Show your passion for the craft and support for students who want to join the trades
You have a passion for your craft. It shows in your work, your professionalism, and your overall commitment. Now, you can communicate that enthusiasm and help student builders at the same time by wearing a #KeepCraftAlive T-shirt.
Off to a fantastic start since its launch in late 2016, the Keep Craft Alive movement, powered by Fine Homebuilding, is bringing awareness to the skills gap in the building industry—the disparity between the employment demands of a growing housing industry and the shortage of trained, qualified labor.
“When you buy this American-made shirt, you aren’t just showing your support for American industry, or for the men and women who lace up their boots every day to do their part in building quality houses—you’re also paving the way for the next generation of tradespeople,” says Fine Homebuilding editor Justin Fink. “That’s because the profits from each shirt sale go directly to a SkillsUSA scholarship fund, which will create an opportunity for aspiring students that want to follow in the footsteps of their mentors.”
You can show your support by purchasing a #KeepCraftAlive T-shirt. Made in the United States, #KeepCraftAlive T-shirts celebrate the value of true craftsmanship in all trades and will help influence the cultural narrative about what it means to be a respected, successful professional.
