From the Blog of Frayed at the Edges

This article is a reprint from the blog of Frayed at the Edges on January 23, 2010. She has also generously donated a beautiful Brown and Pink Tartan Heart Brooch and also bought this lovely Felt and Fabric Round Brooch.

from the BBC website, photographer unknownNo-one can have failed to be moved by the plight of Haitians and this photograph summed it up for me. The agony, helplessness but will to go on of the people is astounding.

Like so many others I wasn’t sure how I could help and to be honest I am wary of phoning/texting donations as the service providers take such a large chunk of your proceeds. Through twitter I heard about crafters coming together in ETSY to sell items to help Doctors Without Borders and decided to donate an item.

Going under the title of Hearts For Haiti there are 757 items for sale (1143 sales) from crafters from all round the world. I have a lovely tartan brooch for sale and am tempted to buy so much.

To date we have raised $13,342.84 after fees which in one week is amazing. Please have a look at HeartsforHaiti as there’s something for every budget there. If you love blogs you can also keep up-to-date with their work on their blog.

Thanks for reading.
