This is law could have a ripple effect that could cripple many charities, small businesses, and crush those of us who make it a part of our lives to donate in hope to make the world a better place.
This link gives a good over view of what this law is about. In short the government has once again made a broad general law that is going to do more harm than good. I am all for the effort to protect our kids and give them safe toys which is why I like handmade toys bought at small businesses such as Etsy, but this law will essentially wipe out Etsy the way I understand it. So I am going to bombard my congress woman with emails and letters until this law is under control.
Please take this as an invitation to flood their mailbox, phone mailbox and email. Please call, send a letter, fax or email.

I joined the the Change. org team and voted on this issue.
Here is the email I sent to Ms. Feinstein:
The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) as it stands could have a ripple effect that could cripple many charities, small businesses, and crush those of us who make it a part of our lives to donate in hope to make the world a better place.
Please make it a point to focus some of your time and energy to make amendments to this act to save the little people who may be crushed by this act.
