Etsy for Causes: Kate Fitzpatrick and Women For Women International

I love buying from shops that donate a percentage of their money to a cause or organization. As many of you know, proceeds from my ACEO book go towards ACEO education and the elementary student artists who contributed to the book along with the etsy/ebay artists. 

I have known Etsian KateFitzpatrick for a long time now and she has beautiful work that is very affordable. Her prints, paintings, and jewelry are AMAZING! Someday if I ever have kids, I want to hire her to paint murals in their rooms!

Anyways, until April 8th, 100 % of her profits from her Etsy shop go towards sponsoring a women in the Democratic Republic of the Congo through Women for Women International. She also participated in an International Conference Call that took place a week or so back (the call can be listened to on her blog)!

She writes in her profile:

"March 8th is International Women's Day! In honor of that, starting March 8th and going until April 8th (a full month!!) 100% of the profits of everything sold in my shop are going straight to sponsoring a woman in the Democratic Republic of the Congo who is a survivor of war, rape, and sexual torture. I am sponsoring her through an amazing organization called Women for Women International. You can read more about this on my blog, at So buy some art and know that your cash is going straight to an amazing cause!"

Please visit her shop and support her cause!
