This week I feel privileged to be writing about Kate’s Etsy shop, On Behalf Of .  Kate is a very special lady who would rather live for others than for herself, and she does this in her own special way by fighting to remove the inequalities of those who do not have even the basic necessities of life.  She is committed to opening the eyes of society to the existing situations of dire need in our world, and hopefully inspiring them to channel some their wealth back into the lives of those who so desperately need it. 

It’s hard to believe that Kate is not a professional artist as her Etsy shop offers many beautiful and OOAK vibrant artworks, photographic prints, bracelets and journals.  Everything is handmade and 90% of the proceeds from her shop sales go towards providing clean water in developing countries, freeing modern day slaves, caring for orphans, or providing medical help to those with HIV.  She has created her Etsy shop for the sole purpose of supporting people in need all over the world.
