Mateja, creative soul behind the lovely shop Funchi, blogged today about her participation in a very special project: crafthope. After the devastating earthquaqe in Port au Prince a new Etsy shop opened, selling donated handmade items with the purpose of raising money for Doctors Without Borders in Haiti.
Funchi donated three pairs of her knitted baby booties and two of them got snatched minutes after being listed (the third one didn't last long, either). It inspired me to do the same so I quickly contacted the Crafthope for Haiti - they have been listing new items constantly, more than 460 have already sold!
Since I don't have time to sew at the moment, I removed two items from my shop and sent them to crafthope - a drawstring pouch and a decorative heart.

Other Etsyians have put their creative heads together and started different fundraising projects - like baahar, who has organized this give away to help the organization Architecture for Humanity.
