"I'D CAP THAT!"
Handy-Cappin’ is a 501(c)3 NonProfit founded in 2019 by Ezekiel “Zeke” Crozier, a Medically Retired Veteran with disabilities, TBI Survivor & Purple Heart recipient. Handy-Cappin’ creates hand-made, unique custom art from bottle caps to partner with other organizations in fundraising to benefit people with disabilities, veterans, and their families. Handy-Cappin' makes a difference by providing one-of-a-kind and meaningful art to honor service and generate funding to benefit communities in need.
Folds of Honor
December 2019 Ian Kennedy took home the custom bottle cap art to benefit Folds of Honor. The Cocherl Family Foundation matched the amount of $10,000 to benefit Handy-Cappin'! It is a true honor to create a piece of art that represents absolute Courage & VALOR. We at H-C are motivated by this move and motivated to create art that will benefit more organizations. The Folds of Honor motto - Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy.
“Zeke Crozier is a man of true grit. He has defied the odds, again and again, to not only move forward after trauma in his own life but to lift up others along the way. His willingness to give of his valuable time and talent to support Folds of Honor is just one example of that. The work of art he selflessly donated to the Kansas City Folds of Honor chapter in December 2019 raised $10,000 towards educational scholarships for families of fallen and disabled service members. Handy-Cappin’ serves to encourage and support other veterans and their families also carrying the lifelong scars of war. It’s an honor to work with Zeke in support of our military family to be sure that no service member or dependent is left behind on the field of battle.”

“This guy Ezekiel Crozier is phenomenal. Zeke is a Survivor Veteran and his heart is as good as his art.”

“My art speaks the words I struggle to find... Sketching was something I did growing up but I have no art background. Smashing bottle caps was an exercise that allowed my motor skills to improve, an activity that came about following a significant (TBI) injury. A bottle cap can be cut, bent and manipulated into shape. Non-toxic resin is added to secure the bottle caps and depth and also gives a nice gloss finish. This is my therapy and my outlet, and my art has given me a purpose. Gives me vision– and now I want to share that experience with others.”
