Original Post

Do you know Laura? ( lauraslocumpainted.etsy.com / creativelytangled.etsy.com ) Laura has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and has just started chemo. You can read more about her on her profile page www.etsy.com/profile.php?user_id=6760712.

Or maybe you know someone just like Laura who is going through the exhausting and too often life threatening disease known as Cancer.

If so, perhaps you’d like to join us in our efforts to raise money and awareness here on Etsy by sharing your experiences on this thread, giving out whatever healing energy to those who need it and maybe even donating the profits or percentage of profits from one or more of your listings to the American Cancer Society for cancer research.

Here is how you join in the growing community of compassionate and caring Etsy sellers who want to try and make a difference in people’s lives who are struggling with cancer. Add the tag 'etsyprojectembrace' to the listing (or listings) that you have decided you will donate money from and mention the project and reason for it in your listing description/s. In this way you will be raising awareness of the need for a cure and donating money for research when your listing sells.

This is the link to the American Cancer Society where your donations can be made:
www.cancer.org/docroot/DON/DON_0.asp . And keep in mind that there is no such thing as a donation too small or an amount that may seem insignificant, it all adds up, it all helps!

Please feel free to spread the word about this on your Face Book page, Twitter, your personal Blog and anywhere else you might deem appropriate. If you have any further questions about this project, please contact either Kim at slinkymalinkicat.etsy.com, Amy at ThePeachTree.etsy.com or me, Kristin, at the above link.

Thank you so much for joining us here at Etsy Project Embrace!! Together, with caring, hope, compassion and love we can create awareness and make a difference! ♥
