Special thanks to Phyllis for creating this outstanding article on shops which donate all or a portion of their sales to charitable groups. The time for giving is here, and choosing gifts that keep giving is a wonderful idea.

Our good and diligent friend, snagged a front page treasury, and within ONE day HandmadeHelp doubled the sales of the entire history of the shop.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Knme for continuing to put forward HandmadeHelp in your beautiful treasurys.

October sales were very weak. Just a little over a hundred dollars from HandmadeHelp since the beginning. Saddens me because it seems such a worthy cause. PaintingWell managed to net a bit more for cancer research, but this economic downturn is something we just can't control, so we're just trying to keep heads above water until things pick up.
Thanks to everyone who has given of your time, energy, donations, and interest. We all benefit.
