Help for Haiti!

Since the earthquake in Haiti last week, many, many children have become orphans. It's really hard to know where to help - there are so many needs right now. The mom of a friend of ours runs For His Glory Adoption Outreach, an orphanage in Haiti. They have over 100 orphans who are, Lord willing, coming to the U.S. in a few days. However, once these children leave, many newly orphaned children will fill their places at the orphanage. Currently, they are out of diapers and low on food, and the workers are worried about security. Please pray for the safety and salvation of these children, their birth families, and the caregivers at the orphanage.

For the next ten days, all profits from my Etsy shop will be going to going to FHG, so until January 31, any purchases you make will be helping this ministry. Or, better yet, you can go to their website and donate directly!


  1. That is such a great idea! I really need to start my etsy shop...any tips?

  2. Hi Joanna - The Etsy start-up process is really easy, and the instructions are straight forward. I've heard that filling out your profile and policy sections quickly after starting is good to do. Paypal makes things way easier than only being able to accept checks. Go for it! I can't wait to see it. :)
