I've had terrible internet problems this week, so I'm a little behind. I'm hoping I can keep my connection long enough to finish this spotlight! Today I'm featuring Craft Hope, which is the brain child of two mothers, Sarah and Jade, wanting to help earthquake victims in Haiti. All proceeds (minus Etsy fees) will go to Doctors without Borders in Haiti to help the relief effort. You can visit this shop at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/crafthope.
Sarah and Jade have been taking donations from the crafting community and adding them to their store. Unfortunately, donations are only being accepted through this evening due to the high response they have received. There is an incredible variety of items in their shop, ranging from blankets, accessories, crafting patterns, and artwork. They hope to reassess in two weeks to see if/how this project will move forward.
Sarah and Jade acknowledge it can be tough these days to trust people claiming to send proceeds to charity. We've all heard stories of scams arising when tragedy hits. Sarah and Jade will post their transaction to Doctors Without Borders on their website: http://www.crafthope.com.
Be sure to check out this great store! It might be too late to donate an item, but it's not too late to shop!
