Etsy for Haiti

(Photo from Rebecca Sower's blog)

I am a longtime follower of Rebecca Sower's blog. A few days ago I read a post and was so excited to hear more about her trip to Haiti in December.
Last night I learned of the destruction there and thought about the loved ones she left behind.
I assumed she would write of their hardships, the conditions they lived in. But now whatever they did have has been taken away and draws our eye to be forced to look.
Some people are built to withstand human suffering. I think that has been me for the first 23 years of my life.
I have been blessed with SO much! All I can do is feel with my heart that my love for God and the love I feel from him needs to be extended.

If you would like to make a purchase of anything in my Etsy shop. At the end of 3 days, ALL profits will be presented to Rebecca Sower and all of the Artists and family she has there.

* Rosemary at Ozma of Odds ~ Ozma of Odds Etsy shop ~Black Moth Studio

* Jen at Sanctuary Arts ~ The Craft Home Etsy shop

*Melissa at MCC Designs Personalized Stationery

I think in doing this it will show our caring for not only the Haitian people but also Rebecca's portfolio of artwork , it will show that we support their desire to create and it will make you feel really good. Above all it will give them hope.

Other ways to help...
Here is the Etsy shop that Rebecca Sower has created for the artists she met. Amazing handcrafted items!! Haiti By Hand
