HANDMADE for HAITI - Etsy Sellers Unite

The earthquake that destroyed Haiti on Tuesday January 12th,
2010 has left the people of Haiti in total despair. It has been so
hard to take in all of the devestating destruction of this magnitude
without wanting to do something. I could not sit by and watch
people suffer in so much pain and heartbreak. I wanted to
donate money to help the people of Haiti and I also knew that
there were other people out there who felt like me. So I took to
the Etsy forum and created a thread to ask other Etsy sellers
if they were donating proceeds from their shops to help Haiti.

Bingo! There are so many amazing and wonderful handmade
sellers on Etsy who were donating part of or ALL of their
sales to help Haiti. This community of artists and crafters are
unbelievable when it comes to helping others. They are so
giving, supportive, kind, big hearted, and extremely generous.
As of today, we have 69 shops on the list who are donating
proceeds from their shops to help the people of Haiti and
the list keeps growing each day. It is amazing to see people
unite and share their gifts and talents in order to help others.
I feel so proud to be part of  this wonderful and truly loving
community.

I completely agree! It's wonderful to see the generosity of the Etsy community, and thank-you for bringing attention to this tragedy where the need for action is so great. Another way people can help is to shop: http://HeartsforHaiti.etsy.com which is a collaboration of sellers donating 100% of proceeds to Doctors Without Borders.
