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.
