Craft Hope for Haiti Shop Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time


Just a quick note to say I have donated a couple of felted flowers to craft hope, which have just been listed. Craft Hope is an etsy shop run by volunteers to raise money for Doctors without borders, all the items have been donated and all the money (except etsy fees) will go to the charity. Here's a little bit more information taken from their website

"Our Etsy shop will benefit Doctors Without Borders, with 100% of the proceeds going to them. The medical need in Haiti right now is acute. The Doctors Without Borders existing facilities are so badly damaged, they are no longer functional. Post-earthquake medical care will be from tents. So far they have treated 1,500 people – 500 of them need immediate major surgery. There are no facilities to do this in Haiti currently. An inflatable hospital should be arriving in Haiti today."

Please take a little time to browse through the shop as there are lots of lovely items.

What a lovely idea. Will check out the Etsy shop later. I found your blog while searching for felting and must say I will be calling back.
