What is Madcap Charity?
Madcap Charity responds to worldwide calls for relief during times of humanitarian need and crisis. It's A Madcap Life Etsy Team sellers donate a portion of their sales to the internationally accredited relief agency of their choice. Madcap Charity sponsors many worthy charitable causes. Some of our issues include childhood illness, cancer, AIDS, human rights, famine and disaster relief.
Madcap Charity has chosen the American Red Cross as our current focus for sponsorship. The American Red Cross mission is to "prevent and alleviate human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors." This organization is actively involved in helping to provide relief to the millions of people affected by Hurricane Sandy. A donation to the American Red Cross helps give care, shelter, life saving blood and hope to those that need it most.
