The Sharing Tree was established in 2009 by Tallahassee artist and entrepreneur Carly Sinnadurai as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation. The original mission of The Sharing Tree was to collect and redistribute reusable materials to educators, artists and the broader learning community, while simultaneously educating the community in the art of creative reuse. Over the years, The Sharing Tree provided thousands of teachers, students, artists, businesses and families with affordable crafting and art materials, donated over a million dollars in classroom materials annually to local educators and non profits, and diverted over eight hundred tons of reusable materials from our local landfill.
In recent years, The Sharing Tree has evolved and grown to include an increasing amount of educational opportunities for children and adults that focus on nurturing creative confidence, while reinforcing healthy values and practices that best sustain people and our planet. Our passion for education has motivated us to reevaluate our mission.
