By now you've heard about the tragic mudslide here in Washington State last weekend. You've seen photos like the one above showing a small rural community basically wiped off the map, and countless others of homes washed away and buried in mud and brave rescue workers, human and canine, searching tirelessly to recover survivors and bodies from the sludge and rubble.
So sad, and so close to home, just 50 miles north.
A small gesture, but from now until the end of April, 100% of all sales in my Etsy shop will be donated directly to the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation Disaster Fund, where all funds raised go directly to those in the community affected by this event.
If you prefer to help in other ways, this article has a list of (and links to) verified organizations that are helping: United Way, Red Cross, Salvation Army, and others - plus information on several fundraisers in surrounding communities.
Update: thanks to you kind people buying goodies this past week, $175 has been donated so far - every little bit helps! You guys are awesome!
