Please take a couple minutes and vote to save handmade toys at Change.org. The top three will be presented to Obama.
Remember a couple years ago the lead scare in children's toys? Well, the US government decided to step in and help with the situation by making a new law that will require increased testing of all products for children under the age of 12. So far so good, right? Well, they are requiring tests that are prohibitively expensive on everything, even on natural products that have never been a threat. This will force thousands of small business to go out of business as testing can cost up to $4000 per item. Say a mom works from home in her spare time to provde an extra income for her family. This law will effectively shut out businesses like that. However, the large mega-corporations will be able to afford all the testing no problem. There is more information on the link.
