i know i already posted about our chosen method of giving money to haiti, but i just keep hearing about cool ways to get involved. one of my most favoritest crafty/hippie/mommy bloggers, totally smitten mama, just did a post about this and i am loving it! there's an organization called craft hope that helps all sorts of people/places and they have set up a store on etsy (like ebay for crafts) just for haiti earthquake relief. crafty people are donating their crafty items to be sold and 100% of the proceeds are going to doctors without borders for haiti.
this is cool because you can give money and get a cool, tangible reminder of the suffering that has gone on and the hope that remains in return. and if you don't have money you can STILL give by donating something you have made to be sold (the deadline for donating the crafts is tomorrow night...see crafthope.com for details on how to give your handmade items).
if you don't have anything to craft yourself, check out the store (click the birdie below or on my sidebar) and buy something cool for yourself and know that you are really giving love and care to someone that seriously needs it. there are tons of things to buy, not just baby stuff; a tom selleck throw pillow was sold earlier! they have already sold $10,000 worth of crafts with all the money going to help haiti..
in a cool twist, i bought something created and donated by my blogfriend, (not that she knows me, ha, i wish.) totally smitten mama herself! its the shirt below and should fit judah next summer. so essentially $15 just went to help send a doctor to help someone in haiti because totally smitten mama spent some time creating this little t-shirt way up in new england that was sold by craft hope in texas that was then bought by me here in georgia. cool!
