The tragedy that struck Haiti this week is heartbreaking, and the extent of the devastation seems overwhelming. Sometimes it’s easy to feel helpless as you watch coverage of the disaster, feeling so small and so far away, but I’ve been really inspired by the people around me and those in so many online communities who are making an effort to help. It’s especially encouraging to see craftspeople on Etsy contributing to relief funds with portions of their sales. As one seller explained, “it’s not much, but small things can ripple outward.” Below are just a few of the handmade items I’ve found on Etsy by searching for “Haiti”.
The lovely Lorena of marañón (!) is now donating 10% of all sales to Unicef through Sunday. Like I needed more reason to want this Peacock Fan Embroidered Necklace… And 100% of the proceeds from this Tattooed Lady Print from Amanda Atkins will be donated to the American Red Cross. You ladies are making it so easy to aid Haiti!
