Item the first: Hearts for Haiti the Etsy shop has raised an impressive $14,857 to date for the Doctors Without Borders charity. I'm glad to say that both of my donated cozies sold within hours to help this great cause. Also exciting? The second sale went to Australia, making it my first international sale :o) This is all good, but we can do more. That is why, from now until Valentine's Day, I will be donating 10% of any item bought in my shop to the same Haiti relief effort.
Item the second: Last night saw the first item of mine to hit the front page of Etsy! Because I am a super big nerd I did a screen capture to preserve the moment.
The hit counter for this little mocha cozy went crazy.... thanks Etsy!
All of this fun news brings us to our give away - I would like to celebrate by giving away one of these cute cozies - all you have to do is visit the shop at www.knittyvet.etsy.com and then come back here and leave a comment telling us which is your favorite. I will continue to post new cozies during this time, including mug cozies. They would all make GREAT Heart-Day gifts!
