Making a difference - the first $5,000.00

I was so excited to send the first $5000 to Doctors Without Borders this morning!!

Doctors Without Borders

I plan to post all acknowledgement letters from Doctors Without Borders here, but until that comes I will post the receipt from the certified check:

I can't tell you what an enormous pleasure it was to send this out, all the tellers and postal officers had to hear me blabbering on about the shop!!

This is just the first check--it takes time for the money to transfer from PayPal to the account. In total we have raised over $10,000 so far (less PayPal and Etsy fees)!!!

I am really so overwhelmed and humbled by what we have been able to accomplish. Together we really can make a difference--THANK YOU!!!!

  8. Victoria, reading your words made me have a lump-in-my-throat feeling; (holding back tears). It is very moving and I too am both humbled and proud to add my donation to everyone else's for Doctors Without Borders.

    The shop's "up-front" accounting transparency is edifying the effort. Thank you!

  9. O-M-GOODNESS!!! I am so humbled to be a part of this......... (Nora.probably still loged in doing seller notifications...)

  10. Just wonderful!! I'm so happy to see everyone's hard, hard work has paid off in this amazing first[!] donation. So many of us want badly to do our part to help, and everyone who has put their precious time and energy into this shop has allowed us the opportunity to do so.

    For that, and for being concerned and loving citizens of this world, I know we all thank you. Here's to many more sales, and many more wonderful donations!
