December Jewelry for Charity Recap & 2008 Kick-off

Thanks so much for everyone who helped me raise $340 for Farm Sanctuary during the month of December!!! I know it will go a long way towards helping some truly deserving animals. This donation brings my total Jewelry for Charity contributions to over $2,500 since I started the program last May. It's so wonderful to know that as my business grows, I'm able to use some of the proceeds to help some really amazing charities.

And now I'd like to introduce this month's charity - Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary in Colorado. Peaceful Prairie's mission is to provide a safe, loving and permanent home for rescued farmed animals. In addition to providing life-long care for the animals, they are dedicated to promoting the vegan lifestyle as the most effective way to reduce the suffering and exploitation of animals.

So remember, 5% of anything you spend in my jewelry shop or my bead shop during the month of January will go directly to the animals at Peaceful Prairie! Thanks again for all your support.

What a lovely peaceful picture. I love pigs, it's too bad people don't realize how smart they are. I will try to find a way to promote the 'Peaceful Prairie' website on my own websites.

Groetjes,
