Helping Joyce from the Etsy Twitter Team

Repost from Punky Jane's Blog:

What an amazing community Etsy is. Add to that the love and support from the Etsy Twitter Team and you've got a powerful combo!

One of my fellow EtsyTwitter Team members, Joyce Richards of Beads of Glass, was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Lung cancer. We just found out this week that it has also spread to her brain.

We planned a "Sneak Attack" on her shop on Sunday, August 16th, trying to clear out her inventory and help with the unbelievable medical expenses. There are still items left to buy to help her financially. Her work is beautiful!

I just read in our Team board that South Paw Studios is donating 60% of the next 10 sales directly to Joyce. Amazing idea!

In the spirit of imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, I'm [Punky Jane] going to donate 50% of all sales now through Friday, August 21st to Joyce Richards.

Mikiye Creations will donate 100% of the proceeds of the purchase price of this flower Elegant Camille will be DONATED to Joyce:

1st sale @Ojami will be donated to help Joyce:

If you are going to offer something special to help Joyce, please let me know by leaving a comment here with your offer and your shop link. I'll grab your banner and compile the list so readers have a one stop shopping list.

If you'd like to make a PayPal donation directly to Joyce, you can do that using this email address: joycercatastrophicillnessaccount@comcast.net.

And she still has beautiful, handmade jewelry available in her shop BeadsofGlass.etsy.com.

Please spread the word by blogging, tweeting and FB to help this fellow Etsian!!
