Earlier this year, Etsy Teams were requested to cross-promote each other, and etsyBEAD paired up with the Creative Glass Guild of Etsy (CGGE). A creative challenge to give back to the Etsy community was agreed upon. So, we approached the Helping Others Street Team (HOST), and the “Creative Minds for Charity Challenge” was formed.

CGGE members created gorgeous glass pieces and etsyBEAD members turned them into beautiful pieces of finished jewelry. And we need "YOU" to pick a favorite!

Today ONLY, April 23rd, we’re asking Etsy members to visit our blog and choose their favorite piece. We will be giving away small thank you gifts donated from members across all three street teams. Names will be chosen randomly and will be announced on Thursday, April 24th!

The poll opens at 12:00am EST (April 23rd) and closes at 11:59pm EST. Only one "pick" per person. No purchase necessary.
Pick your favorite piece here: creativemindsforcharity.wordpress.com

Like one of the pieces you see? They will be available(some already are) in the HOST shop, host.etsy.com, and all of the proceeds will be used to assist fellow Etsy members in need.

Thanks for picking your favorite! :)
And thanks to HOST, CGGE, and etsyBEAD Street Teams!
