By now I’m sure you all have heard about the horribly devastating earthquake in Haiti and I’m also sure that like me you feel so heartbroken and helpless in face of the suffering of the Haitian people. Nothing will bring back those who perished, but the survivors need our help. From all the reports I’ve read, the biggest need in Haiti is just for basic relief and supplies…food, water, shelter, medical supplies. That’s why I’ve decided to coordinate a fundraiser for the Haitian people with 100% of the proceeds to go to the Red Cross International Response Fund. The Red Cross has been helping those in need since 1881 and they have already pledged an initial 1 million towards Haiti Relief, let’s help them give more.

How you Ask?

I’m coordinating a silent auction of items that have been donated by indie crafters, artists and designers. Each day I will share a new batch of items on Indie Fixx that you can bid on via the comments. You will be able to see everyone’s bids and rebid if you get outbid. The highest bidder will win the item and pledges the amount bid towards the Red Cross International Response Fund. The item will then be sent out in the mail to you from the artist, crafter or designer who donated it.............
