Craft Hope for Haiti

If you haven't already heard, Craft Hope has set up the Craft Hope for Haiti etsy shop with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders and their work in Haiti.  Crafters from all over are donating items for sale there.  I sent a couple calicodaisy handmade items in to be listed, a Nigella laptop cover and a Ralph Lauren Soft Storage Bucket.  Not sure when they will be listed, as the founders of the shop are working hard to get everything put together.  This is a great opportunity to safely support the important care needed by the Haitian people. 

While you are thinking about this, please stop by The Howertons blog.  The mama was in Haiti visiting the child they've been working on adopting for the past three years when the earthquake hit.  She was trapped in the country for a few days but then had the opportunity to get home, but she had to leave her longed-for adopted son in Haiti - heartwrenching!  They are working hard and praying to get him home to the US.  Nearly all the paperwork had been finalized and now this.  This desperation for the nearly-adopted children is consuming families all over the US.  Please pray for a quick resolution for the children and the waiting parents.
