A Helping Hand

Well the beginning of the year has been good for many, but has been sad and hard for others. I want to take time out of my normal blog posts about my latest creations or funny pictures of Yoda to tell you about some of the fund-raising efforts that is going on for these people.

**********

First off is fellow blogger and Etsian; Tanya Boden of Aardvark Silver. She is in desperate need of heart surgery. She needs this surgery and cannot have it until she has raised the funds. Please stop by Tanya's Blog and read her story. She is offering discounts in all of her online stores, as well as having a $250 giveaway. Stop by her blog, Facebook Page, or Etsy store for more details.

You can visit the Have A Heart For Tanya Facebook Page for more information and also items from fellow crafters and artists that are donating the proceeds to Tanya. You can also donate HERE, any donation, even if it's $1, helps. Please help her out.

I will be donating all the proceeds from the sale of the above earrings to Tanya. Please click here for the earrings. **These beautiful Earrings have sold, but you can still donate to the Mayday Fund for Tanya!**

Though I do not know Tanya personally, I have gotten to know her through Facebook and her blog. Please donate.

We all have heard about the horrible earthquake that has hit Haiti, and then they were hit by another this morning. The people of Haiti need help.

A group of Etsians have gotten together and opened the Hearts for Haiti Etsy Store. It's a collective of donated items from Etsy Artists and all of the proceeds (minus etsy and paypal fees) goes toward the Earthquake relief.

I donated a pair of beaded hoops. These hoops, along with a large variety of other items, can be found in the Hearts for Haiti Store.

These earrings will only set you back $25 and you'll be helping the relief effort. Click here for the earrings listing.

Please stop by the Hearts for Haiti Etsy Store and help a wonderful cause.
