Hearts For Haiti From The Etsy Community

Hearts for Haiti

I'm very proud of belonging to a talented and humanitarian community as Etsy.
I copied from their  fan pafe in facebbok to help promote this noble effort to raise money to help people in Haiti.

Here are their guidelines:
This is an Etsy collective of donated items from hundreds of Etsy shops to raise money to rebuild Haiti. 100% of the proceeds from this shop (minus Etsy fees and Paypal fees) go directly to DoctorsWithoutBorders ( ) in bi-monthly increments. This shop has permission to use the DoctorsWithoutBorders name and a separate bank account and Paypal account have been opened to maintain the integrity of this shop.

Items have been donated from many individual shops; each shop has included their particulars ( country, shipping time) in each listing. All items include seller-donated free shipping (most worldwide, see individual listing) because the need is SO great, we want you to buy and help support Etsians helping Haiti. The theme for the next few weeks is on heart items but we have more than just that. Please browse our sections to the right and know that your purchase in this shop not only gets you a great Etsy item but it also helps alleviate the needs in Haiti through donations to DoctorsWithoutBorders (MedicinesSansFrontiers ).

If you would like to donate an item to, please send an email to etsyforhaiti [!at] for a copy of the donation guidelines.

We can make a difference, together :)

Currently raised for Doctors Without Borders (after fees): $10,037.37
