Craft Hope for Haiti!

As all of you know the crafting community is both caring and generous. People who make things by hand have a strong inclination to give those things away. Because of this helpful, creative streak we know so many of you will share our interest in and will want to support the Etsy shop currently being hosted by Craft Hope to benefit Doctors Without Borders in Haiti.

100% of the proceeds of this shop will go to Doctors Without Borders. They have already raised over $7000 in only two days. You can donate by either buying an item here, or donating a handmade item of your own to be sold. Information on how to donate an item can be found here. We can't think of a better way to channel your creativity with so many people in such serious need of help.

There are so many lovely handmade items for sale, bags, photographs, clothing and jewelry to name a few, and there are new items being added all the time! Please consider making a donation in any way you can. Thank you!

    I found the link to where the quilt sold http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=24326204 , for everyone else that was curious about what the middle said here is the description from Etsy

    "Part art quilt, part folk art, part outsider art

    The large red cross in the central medallion is surrounded by hand embroidered pleas for help, comfort, forgiveness. We all face danger of one kind or another in our lives and stand in need of rescue.

    Thanks for posting this link. I wanted to do more than donate the small amount of cash that I had given, so through crafthope, I was able to donate a pair of earrings as well. Hopefully this will help!

  13. danielle says:

    How can I participate? I would like to donate a bear made by me.

  14. danielle says:

    I wanted to donate a bear made by me for sale for Haiti, but I guess I’m to late.
    Is ther another sale taking place for the benefit of Haiti?

    Thank you
    Danielle
