San Diego Fire Storm shown Etsy Support!
The tragic Fire Storm situation in San Diego has sparked a huge coming together of the community. This incredible and amazing generosity from average citizens is the reason why San Diego is moving through this crisis with grace and ease.
In fact a touching and supportive gesture from a fellow San Diego Etsy shop SocaliGirl has sparked an active philanthropic thread in the forum for this immediate cause.
So many of my friends, old colleagues, and my sons old schoolmates are in danger of losing their homes due to the fires in San Diego. I want to help them, and anyone else who is suffering through this. From what I understand, the refugees at Qualcomm Stadium still need sanitary supplies and things for babies, etc.
I am willing to donate 75% of anything I sell until the fires are put out from both of my stores to help San Diegans displaced by this fire.
So, please help out these people and buy from SoCaliGirl by clicking on my name or icon or go to http://yummybodycandy.etsy.com and buy from there.
Anyone else want to help?
