Killing It With Kindness

My fabulous friend Wintry, who blogs at Mama Wintry, lost her sweet niece Tuesday in 2009 to a rare form of childhood cancer. Since her passing, her family has started whatchagonnado, an organization that raises money to help ease the burden of families who have a child struggling with cancer.
Whatchagonnado is teaming up with etsy sellers to raise money for their cause. Each month, one or more artists will be donating 20% of their sales to whatchgonnado. This month, my wonderful friend Heidi, who blogs at Under the Humble Moon, is donating sales from her etsy shop, Humble Luna. She makes fantastic dragon tails (just in time for Halloween!!) and other lovely children's items.  I will be donating 20% of sales from my etsy shop during the month of February (don't worry, I will remind you all again then!!).
So, how can you help! First off, make sure to check out Humble Luna this month. Also, whatchagonnado is looking for more etsy artisans to commit to a month! If you have an etsy shop and would like to donate 20% of your sales for a month, please either let me or Wintry know. You would be helping a wonderful cause (and it is great free advertising for your shop!). Don't have an etsy shop but want to help? Spread the word! Feel free to grab the whatchagonnado button and put it on your blog! Share this post on your blog or on facebook! Ask your talented friends if they would like to join in to "kill it with kindness". The families they help will surely thank you for it! Pin It Now!
