Curated Collection for Haitian Relief Efforts on Etsy

Here are a few of the items you can find on the collaborative Esty shop--Hearts for Haiti. Etsy sellers have donated the items, and all proceeds (less Etsy and Paypal fees) will be sent to DoctorsWithoutBorders to help with Haitian relief efforts. The shop has permission to use the DoctorsWithoutBorders name and a separate bank account and Paypal account have been opened to maintain the integrity of the shop.

Etsy artist, Martha Marshall, of Color Poetry is also donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the painting listed above to the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Documentation of the contribution will be provided upon completion of the donation.


  1. Thank you, thank you for featuring my painting! I have had two sales -- one yesterday and one today -- since I began this drive.

  2. I love how this endeavor is a gift that keeps on giving:
    - from the artist who donates the item,
    - to those who put together the Hearts for Haiti Etsy shop,
    - to the buyer of the item,
    - to those who send the monies raised form the sale of the item,
    - to the philanthropic organizations--DoctorsWithoutBorders or Clinton Bush Haiti Fund,
    - to those who work for the organizations
    - to the volunteers who work for the for the organizations
    - to those in need =)
