By this time, everyone has heard about the devastation in Haiti. People all over the world are doing their part to send their support in whatever way they can. And our craft community is no different.
Crafters are some of the nicest people I know. Our community seems to accept everyone, make room for everyone, no matter what their level of expertise. The community also has some pretty big hearts and some have found a way to work within their resources to do what they can to help our brothers and sisters in Haiti.
And you can be a part of it.
- A group of crafters have created their own Etsy store at Craft Hope for Haiti. Dozens of people have donated their products to the site and 100% of the proceeds goes to Doctors Without Borders for Haiti Relief. The prices are reasonable and the giving feels good.
- Indie Fixx is holding a Haiti Relief Fundraiser. There are new additions daily that you can bid on and know that should you win the bid, you can feel great about 100% of the proceeds going to the American Red Cross to help them reach their 1 million relief goal.
- Haiti by Hand
- Knitters without Borders
There are many places to give to help the Haitian people. I don’t know that it’s that important where you give – just that you do. Whatever you can give helps. Make the time to check out these sites and maybe buy something.
