Spread the Love

This month I started a new donation program through my various crafty marketplaces. From now on I will be featuring selected items as "Donation Items", which means that 50% of the profits from those products will be donated to an animal rescue sanctuary. Currently I am donating to Pigs Peace Sanctuary in Stanwood, WA, a non-profit organization that takes in animals that have come from abusive or neglectful situations. Among the many pot bellied pigs residing at the farm are also rescued llamas, horses, chickens, dogs, cats, turkeys, and sheep.

This is a group that I have been volunteering with and supporting for many years, and am happy to be able to continue that support through my creative endeavors.

I am launching this new program appropriately with my new Valentine greeting cards: Llama Love and Valentine Piggy are both made with photos taken at the sanctuary, and can be purchased online through Etsy, ArtFire, or 1000 Markets. So, spread the love-- give a card to your special valentine, and help animals at the same time!

Also, if you live in the Seattle area, you can now purchase my greeting cards at Sidecar for Pigs Peace, Washington state's only totally vegan grocery store and boutique! There are cards for every occasion (well, maybe not EVERY, but a lot): Birthday, Bird Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Thinking of You, Wish You Were Here, Thank You, I'm Sorry, New Home/Address, Congratulations, Valentine, Easter, Spring, etc., plus lots of blank ones; all featuring my wildlife/bird/nature photos. Another way to spread the love!
