*• ♫♫♫•*’ The Etsy Angels are hitting 2012 with a bang!! We are going to start right off with a very worthy charity event - Joey's Eagles! *• ♫♫♫•*’
We had a very successful 2011 and and want to get the new year started so we decided to begin with a charity event that would be close to everyone's heart - Children with Cancer and doing something for them.
From their blog:
Joey’s Eagles is a non-profit organization established in 1996, in memory of my son Joseph Grampp, to provide support for families with children and young adults facing cancer or other serious chronic illnesses.
Through donations made to us, we have been able to provide financial support for families in times of crisis and provide events throughout the year that have brought great joy to everyone.
Our goal is to provide a positive self-esteem for these children and also give ongoing support to their parents. We meet throughout the year, where we have shared parental support sessions and planned group activities.
It is just the start but we have a few Angels working on their shops already:
ByNanasHands - ~10% of January sales and 50% of the Angels Joey's Eagles mascot (cannot wait to see what this charity mascot will be)
Sewinggranny - 15% all sales in January
MyMiniMocs - http://www.etsy.com/shop/myminimocs
Stay tuned there will be a lot more added with specials to go with them and there will also be a Charity BNR for Joey's Eagles too!!
Happy New Year to one and all!
