Etsy Project Embrace


As some of you will know, I donate all the profits from my jewellery sales to charity. This morning I'd like to tell you about a wonderful team of crafters called Etsy Project Embrace, which I've been a member of since soon after it started. The team is led by the amazing Kristin Love, and our aim is to support research into a cure for cancer. Every member donates a percentage of the profits from some of their Etsy sales to the American Cancer Society, and 50% of all my profits on everything I sell on Etsy currently go to this cause. To date, the incredible sum of almost $12,000 has already been raised for American Cancer Society, and there are plans afoot to enable other cancer charities will also benefit from our efforts.


Etsy Project Embrace has just been featured in the Etsy Blog, and the article tells the heartwarming story of why the team was formed and how it has grown to over 250 members. I had tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat as I read the feature, even though I already knew the story. I'd like you to read the article too, and meet some of the truly inspirational people behind our team, so I won't say anything more here. Instead you can read for yourself how life is good, friendship is important, and far-away friends that you may never meet in this lifetime can come to mean the world to you.

Simply click here to read the story for yourself. If you'd like to make a donation, you can do so via my Erika Price ACS fundraising page, or you may like to take a look at the handmade jewelry which I sell in my Erika Price on Etsy shop to benefit cancer research. Thank you for your continued support!

With grateful thanks to everyone in Etsy Project Embrace, for all your loving, caring and supportive friendship. It's a privilege to know everyone involved in the team, and I love you all! Long may our work continue......

  1. Read the article - a very moving story. Ovarian cancer is particularly scary 'cos you don't tend to get symptoms until it's quite far advanced. And there does seem to be a genetic link.
    I wish you great success for such a good cause!
