Etsy Teams for Japan

I like teams, there are a lot of them on Etsy each one with a different purpose, I happen to belong to three, one I created myself (Which I will probably close, none of the members are participating, oh well), Bloggers Unite! I also belong to the Etsy Blog Team and Paper Designs 4 U. Teams give a sense of community and purpose, they're great for meeting other artists and making new friends. They also give Etsians a way to band together for one cause; like these teams

The largest team, Artist Aid, is made up of 434 members. There are no requirements to join, it simply asks to donate one piece of work to the cause.

About this Team

"Watching the footage of the Tsunami Crisis in Japan? Want to help, but don't know how? By coming together, we can make a difference.

This is open to anyone & is done on your own honor. YOU control where your money is donated. YOU are in control of your money.

The idea is you pledge a piece of your artwork for the cause, then once the sale has been made, you make your donation of choice.

This is simply a collaborative effort. As a group we have the ability to reach more people, than by reaching out on our own.

Make treasuries, tweet about it, promote, promote, promote. Together, we can make a difference."

Etsians for Disaster Relief is the second largest team, with 257 members. This is another great team that anyone can join, there are no requirements. Right now their efforts are going towards Japan but they're description simply says;

"This is a place where we can post links for diaster relief allover the world when tragedies happen"
  The Japan Relief Team is made up of  79 members. The purpose of this team is for the members to discuss how they are using their stores to help Japan. But it's also a way to promote each other for the good of Japan.

If your looking to join a team for Japan, any team will do, it doesn't matter how many members it has, we're all working for the same cause.

  1. What's happening in Japan is so sad. I used to live there, and next to the US, it's my favorite country.
