Handmade Help is helping the victims of the Australian bushfires by getting creators of handmade items to donate the proceeds of an item or their store to the relief efforts. (via WhipUp) Go check ’em out. And buy something or donate something!
I decided to donate something, so I’m auctioning off one of the Squidee original watercolors (“Ethel”, pictured below)- Go here for the Ebay auction, and bid! Auction ends Feb-19-09. Starts at 99 cents — all proceeds go to the relief effort — and I’ll pay the shipping. So if you wished you had gotten in on the Valentine’s art bargain, but missed it, here’s your chance! Pass it on — if you don’t want to bid on this, there are a ton of other things on ebay and etsy donating proceeds, just check the link Handmade Help link for more.
Ethel the Squidee is very sad about the tragic fires, but she’s sure she can think of something to do to help!
