~♥♥~ Etsy Project Embrace Team Thread ~♥♥~

Hello and Welcome to the Etsy Project Embrace ChitChat Thread! We are a Universal Coalition of Artists whose main purpose is to create awareness and support for people who have been diagnosed with Cancer, whatever kind it may be. The project began as a way to help our friend and wonderful Etsian, Laura Slocum, who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and is currently having chemotherapy. You can read more about Laura and her incredible uplifting journey here: www.etsy.com/profile.php?user_id=6760712

I cannot stress this enough as this is the Tag that people will be searching for to use in Treasuries, to buy things related to Project Embrace, and any outside promotion!
