HOST - the Etsy Helping Others Street Team

If you haven't already, please take a moment to check out a very important team I belong to: HOST - the Helping Others Street Team. We formed at Christmas time last year when someone asked a very important question in the Etsy forums: is anyone in need this season?

It was such a simple question and I don't think any of us were prepared for what followed. I couldn't believe the amount of people that flocked to not only tell their stories but for all the help they gave as well! It was amazing! And it all happened so fast.

I was at work when the thread started and I followed it for over 3 hours. When it was time to go home I was just so amazed that I couldn't leave my computer! Needless to say, I left work a little late that day! When I got home I kept following, I couldn't stop reading in awe.

Click here for the original thread - there were 2,933 posts in that first thread! What followed was the formation of our street team, then a store but most importantly, amazing friendships!

If you are a member of Etsy or know someone who is, and ever find yourself in a jiffy, don't hesistate to talk to us! Do a forum search for HOST and you'll find us! We'll do what we can to help :)
