Our Not-for-Profit Sponsor
The first 100 guests each day at The Spring Swing who bring a monetary donation for our non-profit partner, The Whole Person, will receive a coveted swag bag chock full of awesome handmades and handouts. Our suggested donation is $10.00. We’ll also have a raffle of handmade items our makers have generously donated which will be at The Whole Person’s tent, with all proceeds/donations going to them. Make sure you stop by and find out more about them.
The Whole Person provides services to people with disabilities and their families and strives to help them identify and implement resources appropriate to their situation. They serve people across a full range of physical, sensory and mental disabilities. Their programs are offered free of charge to all people with significant disabilities.
Their Mission: The Whole Person connects people with disabilities to the resources they need by supporting independent choice and advocating for positive change in the community. They envision a fully accessible community where opportunities and choices are not limited by disability. Their core values influence how they interact with each other, guide how they go about their work and fulfill their mission.

Not only is she extremely passionate about the handmade movement and dedicated to increasing Kansas City’s knowledge of, passion for, and participation in this “indie craft thing”, she’s a crafter herself! Our Spring Swing Sponsor Spotlight is on Farmers Insurance and Farmers Agent Nita Mai, who supports the handmade movement and is a small business owner herself here in Kansas City
Nita is into all things handmade & crafty! She sponsored The Strawberry Swing because she believes The Swing is an important group of individuals who can impact our culture. She’s a maker herself and can’t wait to meet our guests and makers who are equally excited about having and supporting small businesses. Go visit her at her Spring Swing booth and talk to her about how to protect the items that you have and acquire. Maybe she’ll bring some of the awesome quilts she has sewn, too!
