A few weeks ago, after the horrifying earthquakes in Haiti I pledged 20% of all sales from my store to Doctors Without Borders / Medecins Sans Frontiers for relief in the area. I did a special feature on different stores giving to this cause. Today I want to showcase other stores giving to different causes. I was inspired for this feature by one of my Guild Members (as a seller on Etsy & Artfire I belong to a few teams/guilds) on Artfire who has a line of her jewelry dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.
I know that Haiti will need ongoing support over the long run, but at the end of this month I’ll be changing my charity to something closer to my heart. My father has Colorectal Cancer, one of the cancers that are seldom discussed. I’d like to donate 10% of my sales to the support to the Canadian Cancer Society. As of March 1st I will keep a tally on my front page to show how much we have raised.
Here are a selection of a few Etsy & Artfire Artisans who are trying to make a difference:
