Have you heard about this? There is a store on Etsy and its entire purpose is to raise money to help the Gulf Coast recover from the oil spill disaster. Oil has been spilling, no, gushing into the Gulf of Mexico for TWO MONTHS now and there is no end in sight.
A lot of us would love to be able to help but don't live near the crisis area. Well, here's a wonderful way that you can help! You can either donate an item to the Help the Gulf Coast store or you can purchase something from it. 100% off all proceeds are donated to OxFam America and the National Wildlife Federation. Both organizations have given them permission to fundraise on their behalf. To date, over $5000 has been donated from the sales!
