The Etsy Angels work together to raise money for different 'local' charities: the Chintimini Wildlife Rehab Center in Corvallis, Oregon; Friendly Kitchen of Concord, NH; Bellwether Harbor Foundation in Michigan, Ouachita River Valley Animal League in Monroe, Louisiana, Anderson House in Prince Edward Island, Canada, etc.
This month's charity is Loveformaliciababies ! This organization was formed to help support families who have children with forms of Laryngo, Tracheo, Broncho Malacia.
These babies have very serious breathing problems - here is more details on Malacia -
Malacia is described as: "Airways carry air from the nose to the lungs. Some children are born with airways that are too soft. Soft airways do not hold their shape, and air does not flow through as well as it should. There are three places where airways can be soft: the voice box, the windpipe, and the breathing tubes. A person may have softening in one, two or three parts of the airway. This softening is called Malacia."
One of our Special Angels - Ozarknana - has a grandchild with this very serious illness and from the family's experience they found a great need for support for the parents of these children. That is how this organization came to be!
Here is what each Angel is going to do to help this month and you can help us by making a purchase from our shops:
