Over the past few days, as more and more terrible news is reported on the current events related to the tsunami and earthquake in Japan, I’ve seen many crafters online asking how they can help. Once again, it’s so wonderful to see the crafting community rally together when help is needed most. Here are a few links from crafters offering auctions and sales dedicated to relief efforts in Japan. This list is by no means complete – just a sample of what’s out there. If you know of any links that should be included, please let us know.
