CPSIA Blogging Day- Save Homemade

Today is CPSIA Blogging Day. Another big push to get the laws changed and prevent thousands of small business owners — artists and crafters making beautiful handmade items for children — from going under.

Here are some great links to get you involved and help stop this law.
1. Sarah Jane Studios has a wonderful post detailing the law and ways to get involved. She explains it all much better than I ever could.
2. Click here to get the Etsy Action Kit.
3. Help spread the word! Put up a post today about CPSIA Blogging Day. Send an email to your friends. Tell everyone you talk to. Post it on facebook, myspace or Twitter

Almost all of the kid products I blog about will be affected. In most of the cases, the testing fees required will put these micro-businesses in bankruptcy. Can you imagine a world without etsy? That's a sad, sad picture.
