Etsy DUSTERS - A Wonderful Community Effort

The Etsy DUST (Down Under Street Team) group have put together a special Etsy shop for donated items, with all proceeds going to the Victorian Bush Fire Appeal. So far there have been 389 sales, raising more than $5,000 in just one week. Hope you can take a peek at all the great items for sale there and maybe find something you like.

I have selected a few items to show you here.

This year, my parents are celebrating their 60th Wedding Anniversary and one of the things I thought of to help them celebrate was to send them off for a weekend at the place where they spent their honeymoon. Unfortunately, Marylands is just a pile of rubble so that is no longer an option. Check out http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/files/marysville.pdf to see what I mean.

Thinking of you all at this terrible, shocking time.

Thanks, Kerrie. The Dusters have managed to make over 500 sales so far and raise more than $9,000.00 towards the fire relief appeal. Pretty amazing effort!
