Friday's child

There's always a way. I've joined Hearts for Haiti, an Etsy shop where artists of all kinds have donated items, proceeds of which go to Doctors without Borders/Médecins sans frontières, an organization I got to know when I worked on a medical publication.

Here's part of the shop's announcement:

This is an Etsy collective of donated items from hundreds of Etsy shops to raise money to rebuild Haiti. 100% of the proceeds from this shop (minus Etsy fees and Paypal fees) go directly to DoctorsWithoutBorders ( ). This shop has permission to use the DoctorsWithoutBorders name and a separate bank account and Paypal account have been opened to maintain the integrity of this shop.

Have a browse!


  1. Anonymous4:04 a.m. are always first on the spot when it comes to helping out have a big, big heart!!! What a excellent way to add to the fund.What a brilliant idea, whoever thought of doing it.These poor souls need every penny they can get, and even that won't mend their hearts.
    I shall visit Etsy later and trawl through to find a Colette offering.

    Have a happy weekend doing what you like and liking what you do!

    Anon the Elder.....OXOXO
