Theme of the Day Thursday

Helpful hands are springing up all over Etsy and I'd like to help spread the word by posting this Etsy mini gallery of Hearts for Haiti. Their profile explains what the shop is doing to help Haiti recover from the disastrous earthquake of two weeks ago:

"This Etsy collective is comprised of donated items from hundreds of Etsy shops. It is dedicated to raise money to rebuild Haiti. 100% of the proceeds from this shop (minus Etsy fees and Paypal fees) go directly to DoctorsWithoutBorders in bi-monthly increments. This shop has permission to use the DoctorsWithoutBorders name and a separate bank account and Paypal account have been opened to maintain the integrity of this shop.

Etsy: Your place to buy & sell all things handmade

Items have been donated from many individual shops; each shop has included their particulars ( country, shipping time) in the item listings. All items include seller-donated free shipping (most worldwide, see individual listings). Because the need is SO great, we want you to buy and help support Etsians helping Haiti. The theme for the next few weeks is: heart items--- but we have so many more!! Please browse our sections to the right and know that your purchase in this shop not only gets you a great Etsy item, but also helps alleviate the needs in Haiti through donations to DoctorsWithoutBorders (MédeçinsSansFrontières)."


  1. Thank you so much for featuring our shop. The theme for our initial outpouring was hearts, so we have Valentine Hearts aplenty should people visit. We're all volunteers -- some of us have only time to give, others have wonderful handmade goods. We all work together -- and as of Feb 2, we have raised over $26,000 to go to Doctors Without Borders!

  2. Wow! That's amazing!!! Artists and crafters are the BEST!!


Thanks for your comments!
