An update on my post from last night. The Etsy shop opened to raise money for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal has made 24 sales and raised $450 already! Such a good response. How can you help? No matter where you are in the world you can visit the shop, browse the items donated by lots of different makers, and buy something. 100% of funds will go to the appeal and your item will come to you in the mail in normal shipping time.
If you are an artist or crafter you can visit the store and donate an item or items by clicking the 'contact OzBushfireAppeal' link on the right hand side. Send them a description and photos for the listing. Once your item has sold you will be advised who to send the item to. You pay the shipping. You can do this regardless of where you are in the world.
The response has been fantastic. We all want to help. There is so much help needed. I guess if we all do our little bit it will add up to a whole lot of help!
