HELP... with a click

It's quite simple really. All you have to do is one - or both - of these two things:
  1. You have to care, and
  2. you have to click!
HOST is all about - and stands for - helping others. All the people we help are Etsians - either we know them; they are HOST members; they contact us themselves; or are referred to us by concerned and caring friends or Etsy colleagues. We (and by 'we', I mean the HOST team and those who support us) love what we do and wish constantly that we could do more. We are always looking for new ideas, suggestions, helpful links and resources, and promo ideas to raise funds to help with the ever-increasing need within the Etsy community.

We would however like to stretch the margins a little further. Many Etsians - HOSTies included - also have deep personal views about supporting worthy causes beyond the obvious. Some of us care deeply about environmental issues; some are dedicated to helping animals; others may support medical-related causes, helping to raise funds or awareness for diseases like cancers, for example. With this in mind, we have added a new feature to our team blog:

HELP... with a click.

All over this blog, we have pasted in links for six worthy, and essential causes that span and affect mankind around the globe. One, or all of these causes will mean something to every person who visits this blog. By searching our blog, you will identify link icons that attempt to address the following:
  1. Hunger
  2. Breast Cancer
  3. Child Health
  4. Literacy
  5. The Rainforest
  6. Animal Rescue

These are in no order of preference or importance, since they are all equally worthy and relevant causes to each of us. Please, help HOST to expand outside the Etsy margins and do more good in arenas that matter to all of us: look for these icons every day and CLICK TO HELP! Choose one icon that has special meaning for you - or choose all of them! Whichever you choose, the important thing is that YOUR CLICKS WILL COUNT!!!

Thank you :)
