Hi there. By now I am sure you are all aware of the devastating events happening in Haiti. Many in the Handmade community are getting involved in the Haiti Relief efforts. You can get involved too, simply by shopping from these artists!
I will donate $5 for each item purchased from my shop now through February 6 to World Vision’s Haiti Earthquake Relief fund. Visit www.WorldVision.org for more information on their efforts to help in this crisis.
Here are some other artists who are donating a portion of their sales:
