For Haiti

by This is Carrie on January 15, 2010

All over the world, people are suffering, people are hurting, people are hungry every single day.  But these last few days it’s a fact that is impossible to ignore with the news coming out of Haiti.

Once again, I’m reminded how lucky I am to have enough money to not only cover my basic needs but also fund “hobbies” that bring me a lot of happiness.  It is truly a blessing I don’t deserve more than anyone else in this world.

The Crafting community has rallied with some great opportunities to help fund Haiti relief. Go check it out.

I think I’m going to take the Knitters Without Borders Challenge and thanks to a great idea I passed on by a friend, the girls and I are going to set up a “Hot Cocoa for Haiti” stand on Monday in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service.

Because every little bit helps.

Set up the stand and I will be first in line (at least after work) to buy hot chocolate! Great idea!

Don’t miss Craft Hope’s etsy store for Haiti where 100% of the purchase goes to Doctors without Borders.

crafthope.etsy.com

All items being sold were donated by crafters (many of whom are regular etsy sellers and/or craft bloggers).

Craft Hope is always doing something awesome (like their current scarf project).

I love that hot chocolate stand idea. Hope the rain doesn’t get in the way this weekend. Maybe an inside plan just in case. Anyway – a wonderful idea.

It will definitely be raining, but I’m putting up the pop-up and we’ll be out on the corner. A rainy day might sell more hot chocolate in southern CA.
