What We Need & What You Get
- We're looking to just raise any money that we can, if we get $1? Great. If we get $1000? Amazing. Every little bit will help.
- All the items are the product of artist who want to help, please check out their other stuff as well at their shops! Most of us make our livings selling the items we make.
- Even if we don't reach the goal you'll still get your items and money will still go to the Red Cross, we would love to raise over $500 but nothing much will change if we don't.
- New things are still being added! This was kinda a scrambled together effort and people are still making prototypes to be added to this page. We have several artist currently working on products for this and they will be up shortly!
