As many of you will be aware, there have been severe bushfires in New South Wales over the last week or so, and many people have lost houses, businesses, pets, etc. The charities that work to support these people are doing a wonderful job, as are the firies out there on the front line. A number of Australian artisans have banded together to raise funds to support those charities, and have created treasuries on Etsy to showcase items that, when sold, will contribute to the charities.
The first showcase treasury Helping Hand Wandarrah Style Number 1 is up and running and includes some beautiful items. I have included one of my bags in the collection, and will donate 100% of the proceeds of the sale to the Vinnies appeal (Vinnies NSW Bushfire appeal.)
The second treasury Helping Hand Wandarrah Style Number 2 also contains some gorgeous pieces that would make beautiful gifts, or a treat for yourself.
Some sellers are donating 50% of all items sold from their shops, or a percentage of an individual item, or the full proceeds of an identified item – click through on their items to find out the details. Get your Christmas shopping started and look at some beautiful handmade items that will also help to support some very worthwhile causes. Or consider making a donation directly!
If you also wanted to share these links with family and friends, that would be wonderful!!
Hope your week is going well!
