Relief Update and Giveaway Winners

12 Apr, 2010 by in contest winners Leave a comment

As of today we have mailed out 30 boxes of relief to earthquake victims in Chile. The boxes are filled with winter clothes, non-perishable food, cans, blankets, diapers, hygiene kits, herbal tea, Spanish books and toys. We have received two emails this week requesting more aid as winter is approaching and the people are living in tents. They could use winter coats, rain gear, underwear, shoes and building materials. We are also looking for a dentist to contribute toothbrushes and paste and someone to contribute formula.

If you would like to help, in any way email us at I have five more ready to go but each box costs a flat rate of $55 to ship there. Please donate via Paypal to or visit our Etsy shop and look around!

Today’s giveaway winners are …Vintage Jewelry by AsielBlue: Amybunz16 and bethanyfoisy

Puppy Print by Girl and Typewriter: Federica/ Fede

Send us your address and we will get those mailed out to you!

Today’s featured photographer is Girl and Typewriter!
“I am a crafter and university student in Richmond, Virginia. I mostly make cards and stationery, decorating them with watercolor illustrations, quilled paper objects or hand embroidery. I also like to find small things on the ground and use them in collages and other creations. I’ve always loved photography, and felt especially inspired to photograph everything and everyone during the six months I lived in Santiago, Chile. I’ve recently rediscovered these negatives and am selling hand-developed photos from my time in Chile, donating the profits to the current earthquake relief efforts there. Please consider supporting this initiative!”

I lived in Chile for 6 months, and all the places I went and all the people I met there are so much a part of who I am now. All of the profits from these prints will go towards a charity fund for the earthquake relief efforts there. They say Chile Relief Print in the title so you know. I have listed six so far, and may post more soon. Prints do not come with frames or mats; they do come packaged with love and care.

This picture measures approximately 5″ by 7″ and was printed on professional Ilford paper. It shows a dog I met one day while exploring the neighborhood of Bellavista, Santiago
