Etsy Angels Team Fundraiser For "Love For Malacia Babies"

This month, starting on July 15th, the Etsy Angels will be raising money for LFMB. LFMB has done so much already for so many families and they need our help! Make a purchase from any of the stores listed below and a portion of their total sales will be donated directly to LFMB to help them do what they do best....support parents with children that have Malacia.

Can you possibly imagine having a baby and knowing something is wrong and no one seems to know what? That is sometimes what it is like when you have a baby with Malacia. Malacia is described as: "Airways carry air from the nose to the lungs. Some children are born with airways that are too soft. Soft airways do not hold their shape, and air does not flow through as well as it should. There are three places where airways can be soft: the voice box, the windpipe, and the breathing tubes. A person may have softening in one, two or three parts of the airway. This softening is called Malacia."

From the founder of LFMB, LeeAnna, "Almost 2 years ago we created a support group on Facebook, while we were living in the hospital with our youngest son. The group has been such a great support for over 200 people. With the support group we have reached 3 different country's and just about every state in the United States. With so little support found elsewhere we decided to take it a step further. In March of 2011 "Love For Malacia Babies" received their EIN and prepared to file for non profit status. LFMB will one day be able to help families who have Malacia babies. There are so many things we would love to be able to do."

Shop with the Angel's below and help us help them! Happy Shopping!

Etsy Angels Raise Funds For ORVAL In January

Happy New Year!
We are wishing everyone a wonderful new year filled with love, peace, joy, health and prosperity!

With this new year brings new fund raising events for the Etsy Angels team.
In January we will be raising money for Amanda's ( Wildlifer78 on Etsy ) charity ORVAL, (Ouachita River Valley Animal League) in Louisiana. The organization began in 1995 with the promise of trying to make the local shelter a better place by reducing the number of pets euthanized and by giving them resources and products to make the pets more comfortable during their limited time at the shelter. ORVAL quickly realized that a lot of animals were being surrendered because their owners could not afford vet bills. ORVAL then decided to add Vet Assistance to the list of services. Along with vet assistance, ORVAL also has a foster program to try to give pets, from the shelter, a longer and better chance of getting adopted.

Please join us by shopping with any of the listed stores below and help us help ORVAL!


"ORVAL is Ouachita River Valley Animal League. The purpose behind this organization is to help provide assistance to those "furbaby parents" who can't afford medical care to their new pets.

I have been having so much fun lately hammering, dapping, stamping and just playing with metals!

All you have to do to enter is leave me a comment on my blog and let me know what you think of these cuties and I will assign everyone a number and use Random.org to determine a winner. Only one comment per person will count towards the vote :) You have until September 9th to vote, I will choose a winner on the 10th. Good luck!
