Just Trying To Help

I know that I am not alone when I say that the oil spill going on right now in the Gulf literally causes pain in my chest.  It is an awful, awful thing; so many animals, ecosystems, and people are being affected by it and I wish that I could help.

There are a number of shops on Etsy that are donating part or all of their profits to organizations that are helping get through this disaster, and one shop in particular is completely dedicated to helping clean up the oil spill: HelpTheGulfCoast.

I'm sure many of you have heard of this shop before, but for those that haven't, I encourage you to check it out.  If you need to find gifts for birthdays, weddings, parties or other events, check this shop first!

Artists are donating their items to the shop and all of the proceeds go to help Oxfam America and the National Wildlife Federation.  So far they have donated thousands of dollars to each!

We can't all go to the coast and help scrub oil off the birds, but we can each donate a few dollars to help in the relief efforts, can't we?
