The Etsy Community Comes Together for a Friend

Zachary, the 5 year old son and nephew, respectively, of two longtime Etsians, died in an accident a few days ago in California. The community is coming together to raise funds for the family's funeral expenses. There's a list of items that are being donated by Etsy sellers, with proceeds collected for the family, here. Check back for updates throughout the days ahead.

You may also wish to see Zachary's family's page, which includes a link to a PayPal site for donations.

Hi Laurie,
Thanks for stopping by this morning. Your sweet comments are so appreciated. Thank you posting about Zachary. I was unaware of this tragedy. I will be visiting the links. May God's grace comfort the family and all who knew this precious 5 year old.
I know about that snow! We had snow over the weekend...very different for Alabama. Now, the rest of the week is 70's. BUT, I know better than to do any spring planting!!! Spring is just teasing!
