Hearts for Haiti Volunteer Nora from transienttreasures

Volunteer Nora from transienttreasures AND treasurehuntvintageGreetings from Sacramento, California!

Nora here, owner of Etsy shops transienttreasures AND treasurehuntvintage. I am a recent "empty-nester", having put my children through college. Seems I have some spare time--but not much spare money. I am so happy and honored to be able to support this meaningful project.

I, like Sunny, wish I could actually be IN Haiti, helping. Through HeartsForHaiti, I am able to utilize my time and talents to help the victims of this horrific earthquake--without leaving my home. Gotta love modern day technology!

My role at HeartsForHaiti is to notify donors when an item sells---almost 2000 sales to date! (the generosity of the Etsy community is humbling!) I also answer convos as needed.

This shop is a true manisfestation of Ghandis' famous quip--"Be the change you want to see in the world".

And, as Victoria says, "Together we CAN make a difference."



ps - since I am camera shy, I opted for a photo of a bouquet of roses from my garden.


  1. Nora, we are so lucky to have you as one of the dedicated volunteers and I think we can easily change that to "Together we ARE making a difference"!

  2. Ditto to what Kathy said!

    I enjoyed reading this, Nora. The photograph of the vase of beautiful flowers from your garden is a perfect representation of your vibrant and joyful spirit!

  3. Pretty roses!

    Nora, you are such a wonderful part of this team. You are a solid rock that we could not do without! Thank you for all your hard work!


  4. To me you are just as lovely as your roses :) Thank you so so much, Nora, for keeping the wheels of HFH turning!!
