Craft Hope for Haiti

It's amazing, the generosity and swell of support. Craft Hope has opened up an Etsy shop to help the efforts in Haiti, and in two short days they have sold a whopping 111 items (and counting, fast!).

Some might call it a bandwagon, but I choose to see it differently. It is a way to give. An alternative way to help. Last night I donated a piece to the Craft Hope shop and it was listed and sold in a matter of hours. It's quite an operation over there, and I imagine they are working 'round the clock to keep up.

Here's how you can be involved: consider donating a piece to be sold in the shop, or choose to support this cause by making a purchase. There is a mind-boggling variety of handmade goods for sale and each time I check back, there are more and more items listed (and sold!).

All Proceeds, less Etsy fees, will go to Doctors Without Borders.

Help spread the word! Visit the Craft Hope blog to get the code for a button you can post on your own site/blog.
