Haiti help from crafters

We have all seen or heard about the terrible earthquake in Haiti and if like me you felt quite helpless to help but really wanted to do something, anything really then you need to go to this wonderful site, I am donating one of my love kittens and a knitting roll, its only a small gesture but together as a craft community we can make a big impact.

I have copied this off the site for a little info for you:

craft hope for haiti shop

The Craft Hope for Haiti Etsy shop is now open! There are some amazing handmade items in the shop. Please support Doctors Without Borders by either donating a handmade item or shopping in our Etsy store.
Our Etsy shop will benefit
Doctors Without Borders, with 100% of the proceeds going to them. The medical need in Haiti right now is acute. The Doctors Without Borders existing facilities are so badly damaged, they are no longer functional. Post-earthquake medical care will be from tents. So far they have treated 1,500 people – 500 of them need immediate major surgery. There are no facilities to do this in Haiti currently. An inflatable hospital should be arriving in Haiti today.
The shop will remain open as long as we have donations to fill it up! Thanks to everyone for spreading a little hope to those in Haiti.
