Craft Hope is Helping the Haitians and Doctors Without Borders

Hey Bloggers! There are SO many ways we can help the earthquake victims in Haiti. One really great way for us creative-types is by donating an item to the Craft Hope Etsy store.

Here's what Jade over at Craft Hope has to say:
The Craft Hope for Haiti Etsy shop is now open! There are some amazing handmade items in the shop. Please support Doctors Without Borders by either donating a handmade item or shopping in our Etsy store.
Our Etsy shop will benefit Doctors Without Borders, with 100% of the proceeds going to them. The medical need in Haiti right now is acute. The Doctors Without Borders existing facilities are so badly damaged, they are no longer functional. Post-earthquake medical care will be from tents. So far they have treated 1,500 people – 500 of them need immediate major surgery. There are no facilities to do this in Haiti currently. An inflatable hospital should be arriving in Haiti today.

The shop will remain open as long as we have donations to fill it up! Thanks to everyone for spreading a little hope to those in Haiti.

If you don't have an item to donate to the shop, please consider purchasing an item from the Etsy shop. 
Check out the site and the shop. And please -- help if you can.

Thanks so much,
