Shops That Give Back

If you love etsy, and are trying to find a way to help Haiti in the process....
visit the new Hearts For Haiti store with contributions from etsians worldwide.
One of my items will be up here soon as well.
I think Haiti will need a lot of love this year to say the least.
PS: If you are an etsy seller, check below comments for the guidelines on how to submit your own items
So odd trivia...
the 2004 hurricane had to start with my name
and now this earthquake has to rhyme with my nick-name
