Helping Other Etsians in Need

I was recently introduced to a wonderful Etsy street team named HOST. (Helping Others Street Team) This team is a group of buyers and sellers with a mission to help other Etsians in need. They offer basic financial support, emotional support and friendship.

With the current financial situation in the US,and the holidays fast approaching this incredible team is in greater need of assistance. A thread is currently in the forums asking for those of us with any available business resources such as a blog, available free project wonderful ad space or those of us who can donate a handmade item to come forward and help. The thread can be found here.

A detailed list of what you can do can be found on the HOST blog here:

and all proceeds from purchases made through HOSTS store go to help Etsians in need as well.

Please take a moment to read over the post, the blog and check out the store. Every little bit goes a long way to help.

Thank you!
