While reading each day about the ongoing troubles in Japan – earthquake, tsunami, threat of nuclear disaster – I wanted to help. I’m sure everyone feels that little “ping” saying they really should do something to help. Unfortunately I am not in a financial situation where I can just take money out of our budget to donate right now. Which made me sad. But then I realized there IS something that I have – my etsy shop! My jewelry! So I decided to donate 70% of each etsy sale to Direct Relief International, they have a special fund set up especially for the Japanese relief efforts. THAT I can do!!
I started this fundraising just a few days ago and I have already donated more than $75 thanks to several customers!!
I am not the only etsy seller making donations to the Japanese relief efforts. Some sellers are donating a certain percentage, some are donating the entire price of certain special items they have created. Just a quick search in etsy will show you many wonderful items being sold to help Japan!
So take a browse in my etsy shop – remember, 70% of the list price goes to help Japan!!
