Thank You

Thanks to everyone that contributed to the relief efforts in Haiti.

Obviously, there is still much work that needs to be done, and money that will need to be donated.

When I started this blog, I anticipated that I would keep it current until Feb 14, 2010.

With that said, I will keep it here, as a nice reminder of those Artist/Crafters that have so generously donated proceeds to various charities. Many of them will continue to donate, so please check their shop announcements.

Thanks again. I am so proud of the Handmade Community!

Meet the Artists

Twenty artists work to keep Heart for Haiti going strong. In a short time, they have raised over 25,000 for Doctors Without Borders.

They have profiled many of them on their blog

Take a moment, visit their blog. In this virtual world, it's always nice to "meet" the artists!

Other news:

Many artists are donating proceeds until Feb 14th, so continue your searches on twitter and Etsy to connect with them!

(or use the links on the right side bar....they will take you directly to some artists shops on Etsy).

Everyday, I am inspired by the strength of the Etsy community. Buyers and sellers have done an awesome job of raising money for various Relief efforts in Haiti.

They have been using Facebook, Twitter and other resources to spread the word.

I started this blog because I felt it was the best way I could help. I have donated a small amount personally, and I am donating some profits from the sales in my Etsy shop. But, I knew that I had the power, and resources to do more. Because I have time. And if the time I spend equals donations, then it is all worthwhile.

But I need your help.....

Please spread the word. Tweet us. Facebook us. And *gasp* tell people, face to face. Together, we can Help Haiti.

Thank you!

All proceeds from these Mixed Bag magnets (her best selling magnets) by Tanner Glass will be donated to the American Red Cross (for a limited time).

Take a look around her Etsy shop for items tagged with HHH.....20% of proceeds from those items will also be donated.

Lisa at Pink Lemondade Boutique has designed some super sweet clutches for Valentine's Day.....with the proceeds from many of them being donated to the Relief efforts.

Passione is one of my favorites.

Please continue to spread the word........and HHH welcomes your suggestions and comments!

Thank you!

More to Choose From

Twitter has been a great resource for finding artists, crafters and designers that are donating to Haiti.

If you use twitter, search #etsy4haiti or #hhh to connect with them

Just a couple that I found:

Enhabiten: donating $5 of every purchase (update: her husbands business is matching her donations, so in reality, it's $10 of every purchase).

Phydeaux: donating 100% of proceeds from her best selling knitting pattern.

Feel free to post others in the comments, and look through previous posts to find other artists that are donating!

Thank you!!
