Etsy Project Embrace is a team of artists that works to create awareness and support for people who are affected by cancer. Many of the artists involved donate a portion of their proceeds to the American Cancer Society. This means that when you visit their shops to purchase gifts or a treat for yourself, you are not only getting a nice product but you are supporting the cause. So the next time you're looking for something on Etsy, type in whatever you're searching for and add "teamepe" to see if one of our talented, compassionate artists has something up your alley.
