Hearts for Haiti is an Etsy shop set up by several enthusiastic Etsy sellers to raise funds for the Haiti disaster relief. Shop items have been generously donated by hundreds of Etsy shop owners and 100% of the proceeds from this shop (minus Etsy fees and Paypal fees) go directly to DoctorsWithoutBorders (http://doctorswithoutborders.org ).
The shop was set up on January 14, 2 days after the disaster, and since then has had over 220 sales and raised over $2,500. And those numbers are increasing at a very quick rate.
It’s so inspiring to see everyone in the handmade community come together for a greater good.
If you would like to donate an item to HeartsForHaiti.etsy.com, please send an email to etsyforhaiti2 [!at] gmail.com for a copy of the donation guidelines.
Or, of course, go buy something lovely and know that your money is going to a wonderful cause.
