Help Establish More JOBS for Youth in Palestine !


Feed and PROVIDE important creative JOBS for our Palestinian Youth behind the 6 meter concrete wall in the West Bank of Palestine and behind the siege in Gaza !

 Spread the word ?
Your Sharing of this GoFundMe link exclusively to those who care is the Heart of this Art.

The aim of this campaign is :

1) To bring quick relief in Feeding and Warming up families in Gaza directly via our one on one connections with doctors, nurses and civilians.

2) By Funding or PLACING ORDERS ; saving the historical ancestral Blown Glass Art in the Ancient city of Alkhalil in the West Bank of Palestine from disappearing forever by funding and or placing Orders for the Glass art.

3) By doing so, YOU help establish the Sustainability methods of Food Culture, by spreading the Green Garden Water practice ; Used Water to Garden method.

My family back in the West Bank of Palestine are on the ground ensuring the Blown Glass orbs and drops are handled and shipped all over the world via our website Own&Adore and Etsy shop MysicLandPainted .... But at this time we are facing yet another crisis ... a Military checkpoint for the Zionists has situated across the street from one of the only 2 remaining art shops for ancient Blown Glass art in the ancient city of Abraham Alkhalil ; Abraham the close Friend of God. Causing the art shop to shut down and transition into a partially equipped workshop on a ground floor under a home in a quite neighborhood ... All aid is focused on Gaza which is very important ... yet the West Bank and the Financial Pillars of the West Bank and the Palestinian Identity via its Cultural Generational Arts via these kinds of Crafts and Arts is also being severely impacted ... impacting by that the livelihood of the Palestinians in the West Bank whom are by the way surrounded by zionist settlers ...

Palestinian arts are impressive ... I am in a constant state of awe and panic about it .... because I see how our PROUD Generational CULTURE IDENTITY of Palestinian Artists is diminishing as the veteran artists are growing old ; leaving behind naïve youth who didn't have the chance to train on blowing glass due to the current oppressive circumstances that do not provide a stable financial budget to hire and train newbies in this unique and quite complex craft … the experts are soon dying off and their ANCIENT creative legacy will disappear forever. 

Let us together, establish a supporting base of constant supply and demand and training and hiring for these unique arts enable to sustain both the People and the global Palestinian Identity via their Arts.


Here on this page, you don't only help in preserving the Culture and creating jobs ... YOU can also GET a Complete Unique Package of AMAZING Decorative Arts for your home, office, for your loved ones and dear friends on their special occasions and in preparation for the holidays, including Ramadan and Eid !

Salam .... My name is Bashaier Aljabari

I am an American Palestinian mother in my early 40s.
 
A Product developer and Biologist.
* Certified Grey Water Installer in the Bay Area, California .

 Since 2016, I’ve been utilising E-commerce ;proudly selling Palestinian Vintage & Generational Handmade crafts & Arts from the West Bank of Palestine,

This
Enabled me to have the funds to research GreyWater Biofiltering and to Grow nutritious Edible Gardens for families with children, using FREE water resources behind water controlled Apartheid Wall in Palestine and in Drought Conditions.

Online website : Own&Adore

Etsy Shop : MysticLandPainted


So, to Emphasise ;  
25% of any Sale of the Palestinian Arts I sell online and at events, goes to educating, marketing and Installing Grey water Systems in Family Gardens ; which is the Bio Filtering of slightly used water from the Home's Laundry and Bathing water, and Rerouting it to the Landscape or Veranda to safely Grow Nutritious Food Gardens for those Families…. Amidst INFLATION … let’s be honest we need these systems everywhere possible … and we need to be educating and providing the homes with the means to encourage families in growing food residentially.


**************************
The Ancient Method KILN for BLOWN GLASS HAS TO STAY LIT or it will disfunction and then it will need to be rebuilt a new kiln each time the fire is turned off and back on.
But there isn't much orders coming in at this time… We need your help in spreading the word to have more orders placed to encourage transitioning the Kiln and rebuilding it … keep it lit and blowing for orders … Ameen.

In the Video below.

Five years ago, this Shop for Handmade Crafts & Arts in AlKhalil Palestine had 37 Employees ....

Now this shop only has 7 Employees :

Testimony from an Elderly Glass Blower from this Shop in Alkhalil, Palestine about the lack of glass blowers and the lack of reachability and demand thereof after Covid. Topped with the Concrete Apartheid Wall and the oppressor’s regulations and restrictions on Palestinians movement including high price to import export etc ... And now the War .... The old method Kiln for Blown Glass is now turned off due to the close by military base ... We need to BUILD A NEW KILN WITH THE SAME ANCIENT SPECIFICATIONS in the New Location .... and we need CONSTANT DEMAND OF ORDERS ON BLOWN GLASS ORNAMENTS TO TURN THE KILN On and keep it ON we will need constant demand on blown glass ... because once the kiln is turned off and it cools off, then the it will need restructuring since the clay and brick fracture.




The following video was taken before covid back in 2016

In the video you'll see dust on glass ... The dust on the art pieces is actually Soot from the Kiln's and is a good thing ... because it meant the Kiln was mostly lit and producing.

We the Palestinian Artisans, are in need of your support ... Without YOU ... this Creative existence that reflects our Beautiful nature will cease to persevere without your Orders for these arts. 


Dilemma ..
 It starts with our Mother City of Prophet Abraham { Ibrahim AlKhalil } ...  AlKhalil city is an ancient city in the West Bank of Palestine 


 



Over there in West Bank of Palestine ... The Major Oppressive Issue that has been going on ... under cover .... for TWO Decades now, is APARTHEID ...
The construction building of a 
<< Four to Six Meter Concrete Wall JAIL >> surrounding the cities and villages like a serpentine ... Yes, with the oppressive military Soldiers Surveillance Gates, and very little Agricultural Land remaining on the Palestinian side, which is now trapped behind this large prison

... but also now ... it is APARTHEID Topped with the War repercussions.


****************
Regardless … allow me to share the Potential as well ! 

Entering into the 8th year of AlhamduliLah successfully promoting and moderately selling Palestinian arts online through Own&Adore and Etsy Shop MysticLandPainted. 

You can depend on me to HIRE enough Younger Generations in regards to Blowing Glass ..
 



This beautiful stunning generational art Legacy ... Their creative talents and sculpturing secrets of blowing glass carried on from Grandfather to Grandson ever since the time of the Greeks & Romans and onward , will eventually DISAPEAR in the ancient city of Alkhalil UNLESS we TAKE ACTION NOW to train a bunch of creative youth on Glass Blowing.
 
  • Tourism in Palestine is at an all-time low after covid followed by the war
  • And there aren't any proper encouraging facilities and programs amongst the educational institutions in Alkhalil city, that are funding the process of reimbursing the artisans if they train and coach the younger generation.
  • Making it one more harder thing to do in the given circumstances.
 
Let's help maintain this truly unique ancient art and create more Beauty-Spreading JOB VENUES for our youth in Palestine by:
  • PURCHASING more of their beautiful creations.
and by
  • Funding opening an Educational field in our Alkhalil universities exclusively for Glass Blowing.
Specifically, to enable having our AGING Palestinian artisans TRAIN & HIRE our YOUNGER Palestinian artists.



****That can simply become a reality through choosing to Shop from our venues and or Fund the campaign !

 
Vision …
Collage and University students in AlKhalil city of West Bank Palestine, who see the emphasis put forth to this art, will hence focus on this art.
Encouraged by that to get Certifications and Jobs in Blowing Glass.

And through that inshaAllah , they'd see a bright future in Blowing Glass and can utilize the chance to spread their wings out into the world as they participate in global art events and conventions, maintaining their creative culture.



Ladies & Gentlemen ... Brothers & Sisters ... I need your help so we can all see this come to fruition ....
