Etsy Angels

So, October is breast cancer awareness month. That being said, I deemed it appropriate to do something in honor of such an important event.

There are so many who do such incredible things to raise awareness about breast cancer. I’ve been searching for just the right group to share their ideas on how to help…and I think I’ve found them.

Meet the Etsy Angels. The Etsy Angels are a Self-Representing Team of Artisans that create a variety of unique handmade items including Artisan Jewelry, Lampwork Glass and Polymer Clay Beads, Bath and Body Products, Quilts, Knits and Plush, and Paper Products to name a few.

This unique 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 they could imagine that wanted to help, many friendships were made. They couldn’t imagine it all ending without creating a Team for Dawn’s Angels. ♥

This month, the Etsy Angels are donating a portion of their proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

    Thank you so much for your story on our team efforts! This is a very important issue that needs all the attention we can give it and the more donations we can give the better! Breast Cancer is a terrible disease that all women need to be more aware of!!

  5. Thank you so very much for featuring the Etsy Angels today! I just joined this group and have found them to be the most warm and genuine ladies I have met…..I have lost many in my family to this horrible disease and have worked every year in some capacity to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and I was thrilled to know the Angels were raising funds for them this year……they do so much! Thanks again for featuring us!!
