There are so many Etsians in serious financial difficulty - all year - but most especially now, in what should be a happy, 'festive' season.

Think 'six degrees of separation' and let's all pull together to use the business resources we have to help others, as well as ourselves.

I have a plan - it's on my blog: - and my other blog: - and my Etsy Street Team's blog:

Read the plan, use it, copy it, come up with something new but whatever you do to help, please come back and post here to share with us.

We Etsians are our own biggest resource!!! Let's pull together and do something for each other! And yes, do it for the feel good factor too; that's your reward for now.

Thank you, and best wishes for your own health, happiness, and prosperity -
Maisy :)

If your PW ad-boxes have paid spaces, would you consider making them free till the New Year, so sellers in need can bid for them?

This is a very good idea. I recently bought something from AWBAR and I'm working on some items they can sell to raise money to help the animals.
