Save the Gulf- Ill try

Thursday, June 24, 2010

I keep watching the news coverage on the oil spill and scanning through magazines of dirty pelicans and sea turtles and sometimes I feel so helpless. I don't really have the funds or extra time to donate to the disaster, but I figured I could spare a little through ETSY.

My boyfriend Gavin is from New Orleans, so we both pay close attention to whats happening in the gulf. We are going down to visit this weekend, it will probably be the first time visiting that we wont bring home a huge bag of fresh boiled crayfish or shrimp. We hope to even head to the coast to see some of the damage.

For the next month (June 24-July 24) I have decided to donate 15% of my sales on ETSY to The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund. This does not sound like much, but its all I can really give right now. I'm hoping to raise at least 200$ in the next month to be donated. The 15% will be taken out of the final purchase and stored until I can donate the lump sum of raised fund in July.

How can you help? Simply purchase some lovely vintage
items from my shop, The Appleseed.
Or if you don't find something you like in my shop, check out all the ETSY sellers below who are also donating funds to the disaster.
