Craft Hope for Haiti

For those of you who aren't familiar with Craft Hope,, you should check it out. They set up an Etsy shop to raise money for Doctors Without Borders in Haiti and things are just flying out of the shop,! They have been taking donations for the shop from crafters around the world in hopes to raise a few hundred dollars to help the cause and last I read at 745 sales they have raised over $15,000. The shop shows over a 1,000 sales now, so they are continuing to raise a lot more money. I'm am amazed at everybody's generosity!!! I donated a couple items to the shop this week. They are so overloaded that it took almost 3 days to get it posted in the shop and it sold in less than 4 hours! WOW!! I sent another item for sale last night, so it will probably be Friday before it gets posted. Last I read they plan to stop taking donations for two week as of this evening, Wednesday, January 20, 2010, so they can regroup.... take a break and organize their thoughts, their systems, and their mission in order to serve the community better.

Please check out Craft Hope for Haiti to see if there is anything you want to purchase to help raise money for the cause!
