Etsy Sellers Unite to Help The Gulf Coast


The Deepwater Horizon oil spill happened on 
April 20th, 2010 and created an environmental disaster, 
with extensive impact already on marine and wildlife 
habitats in the Gulf Coast
This massive oil spill changed the lives of so many 
people and the many different types of wildlife in the 
Gulf Coast region.
We may never know the true effects of this incredible 
disaster and the long term environmental devastation 
for many years to come.
I believe that we can help to solve this problem and 
bring the Gulf back from this massive disaster. 
We all have to unite and help in whatever capacity 
that we can to clean up the Gulf. 
We only have one Earth, we are all responsible 
for this beautiful world that we share 
together.   
 
....................................................................................................
HelpTheGolfCoast is a collective Etsy shop to help
 the Gulf Coast recover from the massive BP oil spill. 
Etsy sellers have donated their items so that 
100% of the proceeds can be given to charity.

They have set up a separate Paypal account for this shop
and many Etsy sellers have donated their items to help 
raise money for the Gulf. 

100% of proceeds (after Etsy & Paypal fees) will be donated 


Both organizations have given HelpTheGulfCoast
permission to raise funds on their behalf.

So far, they have donated over $5000 to Oxfam America 
and to the National Wildlife Federation!! 

You can help support in this wonderful effort by spreading
the word about this amazing Etsy shop or purchasing an
item from HelpTheGulfCoast to help raise funds for 
the Gulf.


Thank you so much for your love and support! xo

These are the first pictures I've seen of the spill and I can't believe the damage it's caused. What a great cause for etsy to take part in I wish there was more that could be done.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments! This is a wonderful cause that we all can support to help the Gulf recover from this massive oil spill.

I also have to say that the Etsy community is an amazing group of people who are so sweet, supportive and generous. This is why I love Etsy!
