INCrowdTeam - Fund Raiser

I am part of a "street Team" on etsy, the handmade site that hosts my store front, and as a street team, we have partnered with the church of one of the street team members to do a fund raiser for the recent IN flooding.

Here is the press release and a list of the shops that are participating, hope all the links work.

The INCrowd is partnering with Grace Lutheran Church in Columbus, IN to assist those affected by flooding in Indiana.
Each participating shop will generously donate a minimum of 10% of their sales for the month of July.

Grace Lutheran Church is assisting flood victims by setting up temporary shelters and donating food and clothing items to those in need. "At the moment everyone has been helped and are in temporary housing - they closed the shelter over the weekend. We will continue to take donations for quite awhile; the next phase is to help people rebuild and many did not have insurance and FEMA is not covering everything" states Carrie, Etsy shop owner of TimeandSand, who is also the director of the Care and Outreach Program at the church."Our membership is spread across the state of Indiana. Any part of our state that is affected by disasters - natural or otherwise - needs our support. These are our neighbors, our friends, and our families." says Kim, Etsy shop owner of ThePeachMartini.

Here are the participating shops:

Please check out these awesome shops and help support Hoosier communities affected by the flooding!
