Etsy Helps the Gulf Coast

Do you Etsy?  Etsy is an online web "store" where you can find everything from handmade aprons to quilts to vintage jewelry and clothing to signed artwork to random yardsale finds.  To help fund the massive Gulf Coast Recovery efforts, Etsy has partnered with many of its sellers to offer donated items for sale--100% of proceeds can be donated to charity.
This is a collective etsy shop to help the gulf coast recover from the massive BP oil spill. Etsy sellers have donated their items so that 100% of the proceeds can be given to charity. 
We've set up a separate paypal account for this shop. 100% of the proceeds (after etsy & paypal fees) will be donated to OxFam America and the National Wildlife Federation. Both organizations have given us permission to fundraise on their behalf.

For a full list of etsy sellers who are participating, please view our profile here:  http://www.etsy.com/people/HelpTheGulfCoast

If you're interested in donating an item for this shop, please check out our donation guidelines in the shop policies!  http://www.etsy.com/shop_policy.php?user_id=10158415

Our blog - http://www.helpthegulfcoastetsy.blogspot.com/
All of the items in our shop have free shipping to the US, and some sellers have offered free worldwide shipping. If you live outside the US and you're interested in an item that does not have free worldwide shipping, please convo the seller. They can send you a separate invoice for additional shipping charges.

Below are a selected few of the items I found intriguing... even if you don't purchase anything, please spread the word.
