Hearts for Haiti is a collective of hundreds of shops, from all corners of the world, on Etsy.com who have donated items to raise money to assist the relief efforts in Haiti. Proceeds from Hearts for Haiti go directly to Doctors Without Borders. Established within three days of the earthquake, so far, they’ve raised $ 28,531.
It began when Victoria Van Der Laan of exlibrishandmade posted a forum thread on Etsy calling on anyone willing to help organize an Etsy shop established to raise funds for relief efforts in Haiti. People answered and the next day the shop was up and running. Recently, Etsy featured Hearts for Haiti in an article on their blog The Storque titled Hearts for Haiti: Etsy Sellers Do Their Part where you can learn more about the shop and it’s amazing group of volunteers.
Jeff and I donated our True Red Glass Art Bottle. I chose that particular bottle to go with the shops Valentines Day theme. And…to help out even more, I plan to purchase something pretty to hang from ears. (big smile)
Our hearts are with you Haiti.
