Crafting for Earthquake Relief
By now you’ve heard all about the devastating earthquake that struck the capital city in Haiti. It is overwhelming, scary and getting the supplies, relief and money needed to make a dent in the utter devastation seems like an insurmountable task.
But us makers are a crafty bunch, running sales, donations and silent auctions to raise money to help. So here are a few ways to rise to the occasion with the craft community:
- You can find a good list of Etsy shops with sales and donations on the Handmade for Haiti thread.
- The Yarn Harlot has put up the Knit-Signal, calling all knitters to the cause.
- Indie Fixx is running a live blog silent auction. Each day, new goods will be put up for bid and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross.
