Etsy Project Embrace - Fundraiser for American Cancer Society

Growing ... 
Do you know about Etsy Project Embrace? "EPE" is a wonderful effort by an ever increasing number of Etsy sellers to raise funds for the American Cancer Society in honor of our friend and fellow Etsian Laura Slocum, who is courageously (and cheerfully) battling ovarian cancer.
      Growing ...
Etsy Project Embrace keeps growing and growing, as the word spreads and more and more sellers and friends join the fight for Laura and all others stricken with cancer. Participating sellers have listed more than 600 items for the project, donating all or a portion of proceeds to ACS, and contributions now top $1,600.  Our goal is $2,000 -- so we're getting there fast!
This is a lovely project, bringing together Etsians and others from all over the world.

If you're a seller and would like to participate, just add "etsyprojectembrace" to the tags for any item you'd like to add to the project, and in your description tell what portion of your proceeds you'll donate to ACS.  It's as easy as that!

If you're a buyer looking for EPE items, choose "All Items" from the drop-down menu at the top of the Etsy page and type "etsyprojectembrace" in the search box.  Or click the following link:

And remember -- wear your teal ribbon!
