Ceramic Beauty In Hearts For Haiti

I have been truly honored to be a part of the Hearts for Haiti team on Etsy. I first heard about the Collaboration Shop in the Etsy Forums. I knew immediately that I wanted to donate some items from our Etsy shop, and also help with the work behind the scenes.

My first job was to open new Forum threads to promote the shop. Next, I took on listing some of the many donations that were being sent in. This was a big deal for me, because I secretly HATE listing items on Etsy! In our shop, I take the photos, and Mom does the listings! But because I had a purpose, to help those in dire need, I sucked it up and did my part, listing some unique and lovely items.

Recently I have started working in the Hearts for Haiti inbox. I go through donations, tag them, and send them out to volunteers to be listed. I also help tackle lost listings, relistings, and any problems that may come into the inbox.

My favorite part of being a part of the Hearts for Haiti team is the sweet friendships that have been cultivated while working so hard on a common vision. I am blessed to be a part of something bigger than myself. We are making a difference. Together.

Featured here are some gorgeous ceramic items on sale now in Hearts for Haiti on Etsy.

Handmade, trying to save the world...

My heart is broken for Haiti. I have been working almost non-stop as part of a great team of Etsians in a collaboration shop called Hearts For Haiti. Due to the giving hearts of the Etsy community, we have raised over $3000 so far for Doctors Without Borders!

If you are an Etsy seller- please consider donating to the shop. Donation instructions can be found on the shop's Policies Page.

If you are a lover of handmade- please take a look around and see if anything strikes your fancy! So many gorgeous items have been lovingly donated, and all have free shipping, most world-wide!

I feel so honored to be a part of this!

Hearts For Haiti on ETSY

Hearts For Haiti on ETSY

Hey friends. I'm sorry I've not been around since the holidays. I've been neglecting my blog. It took a great subject to break me from my blogger slumber. I'm so excited to tell you about Hearts For Haiti on Etsy!

Hearts for Haiti is a collaboration of hundreds of Etsy sellers, doing what we can to support the earthquake victims in Haiti. The concept was born and bread in the Etsy forums a few days ago, and the shop took flight in the wee hours of the morning today.

I ask you to consider participating, whether by donating an item from your Etsy shop, or by purchasing an item for yourself!

All proceeds will benefit Doctors Without Borders.

Please help.
Thank you!
