My Favorite Street Team....The Etsy Angels!








I have been busy doing blogs in the past few days and now I want to honor my Street Team...the Etsy Angels...they are more than a team on line I consider them my friends!

When things are going bad or we need support we run off to our team thread and pour our hearts out. There is always some one there to help us through it! We have shared many events in our lives over the past 2 years, happy, sad, joyous, disappointing...you name it one of us has been there. It is so nice to chat with it to someone that is not going to be going behind your back and discuss it with your friends or neighbours~!

Here is how our team got started:
Our Team was formed after the many hours spent together promoting for Dawn’s Boys; an effort that began in late December 2007 after a Jewelry artist who was on both Etsy and Ebay lost her life in an automobile accident. She left behind two little boys. Several "Angels" came together to help. After spending countless hours promoting donations from more people than we could imagine that wanted to help, many friendships were made. We couldn’t imagine it all ending without creating a Team for Dawn’s Angels. ♥

We have taken part in a number of charity events and the next one is coming up soon...In the month of September we are doing one for the American Diabetes Association!

I hope that it will go as well as the past ones....anyone interested in joining us can....we are always looking for Angel friends to help out! Just contact myself or anyone on our team.

You will always find someone here:

Wonderful Quotes to live by!
