Original Post

You may have already seen this in Etc:


One of our Etsy Members, Jodie Cruz, has just lost her 5 year old son Zachary last Friday to an accident at a crosswalk. I've decided to help and get the help of other Etsians to donate an item from your shop to help defer costs of the funeral. You can also visit this site to donate to help the family:
*The sidebar has a paypal*

*If you wish to donate an item for Zachary, put an announcement in your shop and then in the title of the item, put 'For Zachary'. Also tag the item 'Zacharys Fund'.*

Thanks to all you participated in our other thread that had to be closed by admin. We are not allowed to solicit for donations or money in the forums...but we are allowed to do a post to direct people to the shops that want to donate one of their items (all proceeds will be donated to the site above) or have a sale with a percentage donated.

Let's help keep this thread going. Do not post an item in this thread, but feel free to leave a link to your shop.

I've already sold my donated items, but I wanted to bump for the others! :) Let's keep this at the top!

I also wrote to admin for clarification on how to do this as I see an active thread right now that is outright asking for donations. Maybe they will answer back.

Well, I'm all for helping this cause Pam!

This family needs our help. Funerals and travel expenses are very expensive.

In our other thread, we had around 50 shops participating. I hope these shops will still help!

yes, that would be helpful if Admin would clarify why some donation pages are allowed to stay open and others are not.

it is puzzling!

I'm hoping all the people that had items up for donation will post a link here to their shops!
