The Heart in Art on Etsy: Creative Giving


Handpicked on Etsy
Today's 'potpourri' showcase is about beauty emanating from hand and heart. These Etsy artists are but a few among many who combine their artistic skills with the spirit of giving to benefit those in need, donating all or part of their proceeds to worthy causes from cancer or autism research to child or animal welfare. Browsing Etsy's search pages, I was inspired by generous artisans working in a broad range of media and styles, working independently or in teams to raise funds for charity. Please click on the pictures to visit these Etsy stores and learn more. Prices range from $4.00 to $200.00. From upper left to bottom right, today's Etsy sellers include: HandmadeHelp, ApacheMoon, sophiapip, brooksearthfarm, HandmadeHelp, EtsyForCharity, slumptown, EtsyForCharity, artbysas, HOST
