Help for Haiti

The devastation from the earthquake in Haiti is heartbreaking. It seems like we haven’t turned the TV off since it has happened and keep flipping between channels to catch the latest news coverage. Although we don’t know anyone personally affected by this disaster, it still breaks our heart to watch all these people suffering day after day.

I kept saying to my girls in the studio, we have to do something! What can we do? What should we do? Finally, after reading what Elsie did (which is AMAZING!!) we felt completely inspired and moved to hold our own auction!

So we have filled a medium size Priority Mail flat rate box full of the following goodies with over 100 items from our store to put up for auction! Here’s a peek of what’s inside:
A mix of paper tags:Some stamps:
Some of our items from our newest release:
More tags, cut outs, recipe cards and note sheets!
All packed, ready to go!
You are bidding on this entire box! Please write your bid, along with your email address in the comment section below(email address is very important, in case you win we’ll need to email you!). We’ll start the auction at $10! This auction will end on Sunday, January 24th at 6:00 pm Pacific time. At that time the winner will be sent a PayPal invoice via email and once payment is received we’ll ship your box! We will also send you a receipt of the donation made on your behalf and cover all shipping costs (even for overseas!).

Your donation will be donated to World Vision. Please take a moment to visit their website and see all the amazing things they are doing for Haiti right now – it is truly amazing and we feel so honored to be able to offer this auction.

Thank you all SO much for reading this – this cause is so important to us and we are excited to share this with you today.
xo, Elle

P.S. We’d be grateful if you could help us spread the word about this auction, too! Every bit helps 🙂

EDIT: Just wanted to clarify – the entire winning bid amount will be donated to World Vision! Thank you all so, SO much for your bids!

EDIT again 🙂 VERY IMPORTANT: Please make sure you leave your email address in your bid so we can contact the winning bidder!

    this is awesome!

    i don’t know if the American government is doing this, but every donation made through World Vision Canada until Feb 12th is automatically doubled by the government of Canada … so we can make double the impact …
