I recently opened a shop on Dreamaid having heard about it through fellow sellers on Folksy. By buying through Dreamaid, 5% of the purchase price from each of my items is donated to those in poorer countries who need help selling their crafts locally.
Dreamaid started in May, 2009 and has recently become a better known name through it's television documentaries broadcast to show people exactly how they operate to help others.
The buying and selling site has products "from 23 countries, Dreamers from 55 countries and visitors from 125 countries" (source: Dreamaid). How fabulous that we have a fast growing community of sellers of hand crafted goods willing to sell on-line and help others at the same time.
Since joining Dreamaid I have listed a few of my items picked from my Folksy shop. This gives the buyer the choice of where to purchase and whether they'd like a percentage of the purchase price to be donated to a worthy cause.
Two items in particular seem to be catching people's eye over at Dreamaid:
My pretty floral Patchy Pockets has appeared on Dreamaid's front page and has also been tweeted by Dreamaid as "so cute (that) we just had to show everyone".
My cute pussy cat heart brooch has been nominated for the jewellery top ten picks.
