Etsymom Finds - Give a Heart!

Hi Etsymom, sorry I wasn't able to post last week. I hope everyone is doing well!

For this week, instead of featuring items from our Etsymom shops, I want to bring more awareness to this Etsy shop for a great cause, HeartsforHaiti. As you are probably all aware, a series of massive earthquakes devastated Haiti last week on January 12th, leaving millions of people injured, homeless and hungry. Not to mention thousands that have lost their loved ones. HeartsforHaiti is a shop that collects donated items from Etsy sellers with the goal to donate all proceeds (net Etsy and Paypal fees) to DoctorsWithoutBorders to help support the relief effort. You can read more about how the donation work at their website homepage and profile.

For the next few weeks, the organizer of this shop is asking for a "heart" theme product, but any Etsy approved item is welcomed.
Here are a few interesting items I found from HeartsforHaiti:

Two Hearts - necklace donated by Glasfaden

With Love  - Beaded Bookmark donated by ChatonDesigns

Butterfly Heart Valentine Brooch donated by Clayshion

Perfect Together Valentine Note Card donated by DawnCorrespondence

Green Heart Button by Allaboutthebuttons

Finally, this is the item that was donated by me, LOVE ACTUALLY. I hope this item will fly out of the shop very soon!

I originally wanted to look for items donated by Etsymoms but it is very difficult to search through 500+ items. So if you have donated and would like the item to be featured here, please contact me directly at or send me a convo via Etsy

Etsy stores united for a great cause, isn't this something we should share with everyone we know?
