The Etsy HOST team helps Etsy buyers and sellers who are going through difficult times. They match up people who can donate items with people who need items. They offer emotional support, promotional help, and anything else that makes the day a little easier for someone in a difficult situation. They're a great bunch of caring and good-hearted people, giving back. And isn't that what it's all about, especially during the Christmas season? So, check out their Etsy shop, and their current Holiday Season thread in the Etc. forums. See if you can help out, pick up something from the shop, donate something to someone who can use it. Or ask for help if you're in need.
