I’ve posted a few times (here and here) about the amazing work of Alison Gordon at Wonderland Q, most recently from the Sampler contributions. Alison also is an organizer of Bazaar Bizarre and a helper to the Sampler. She’s a dedicated crafter and like most people who are trying to make it on their own does not have her own health insurance. Alison recently suffered a medical emergency with sky high medical bills. Thankfully, Rene Garner and friends have organized an etsy shop called Wonderland Retreat to raise funds that will help pay for Alison’s medical bills. If you’d like to contribute a donated item to the shop, email Renee at email@example.com. Otherwise, take a look at the shop and buy something crafty to help support a craft friend in need. Marie at the Sampler reports that after less than 24 hours since the fundraising shop has gone up over $1,000 worth of handcrafted donations have gone up. [ via ] Link.
