From the Blog of Molly Lee Cards

Molly wrote "after seeing so many news stories of the devastation in Haiti, I jumped at the chance to be able to do something to help. I've been so pleased that my pop-up winged hearts card has been selling so well (11 sales an counting!).

As soon as a card sells, I get a convo from one of the Hearts for Haiti administrators who give me all the information I need to ship the cards, along with a nice thank you. I'll usually follow that up with a convo letting them know that the card is being shipped and asking them to relist the card on their shop.

I posted a note on my Etsy greetings team discussion boards and received so much feedback from my fellow teammates who were as excited as I was in being able to help out.

It's been a wonderful experience being a part of this effort!"

This article is a reprint from the blog of Molly Lee Cards on Sunday, January 17, 2010. Molly has also generously donated eleven Pop-up Winged Love Cards for Hearts for Haiti and she says she intends to continue making and relisting them until she is no longer able to make any more :-)

If you are looking for a creative way to help the people in Haiti, here are two ways you can assist the men, women and children in this devastated area: craft and/or shop!

Hearts for Haiti is a new etsy shop that was created for the sole purpose of accepting donations from etsy sellers and selling them to benefit the people of Haiti. Their shop has already raised thousands that goes directly to Doctors without Borders to help fund their humanitarian efforts.

Want to donate your handmade crafts to help Haiti? (incidentally, this will likely get your product and shop a lot of great exposure, if the notion of helping out the world isn't enough motivation for you) Send an email to Victoria needs this information:
  • Your shop name
  • Your location and country
  • Item Name/Title
  • Item Price (please do include this! we don’t want to undervalue your work :)
  • Item Description
  • 6 tags
  • Materials used
  • Up to 3 clear photos of the item
Be sure to check out the shop -- there are lots of wonderful products that have been donated already (they'll be posting my Pop-Up Heart card soon). All shipping is free, so this is a great time to snag some good deals (again, if the idea of helping the world isn't enough motivation). Remember, all the proceeds go to an excellent cause!

  1. The Pop-Up Heart card is fantastic and that's why it keeps "flying" out of the shop.... 11 donations and counting, wonderful Molly! Thanks for sharing your blog post too.
