August Jewelry for Charity Recap & September Kick-Off

Yay! With your help, I raised $313 for Animal Place during the month of August, bringing my total Jewelry for Charity donations to $1,211 since the project's inception in May. Thanks so much for helping me help others!

As I mentioned earlier, I had a last minute change in my planned beneficiary for September. I had to come up with a new charity pretty quickly, and yesterday's post about the environmental impact of meat consumption made me decide to choose another group dedicated to protecting animals and the environment, and spreading the word about the benefits of a plant-based diet.

So, without further ado, September's Jewelry for Charity recipient is Friends of Animals. To read more about their programs, click here, or visit their blog for the latest news and updates. You can even download a free vegan starter guide!

I love the fact that you donate a portion of your proceeds to Charity. $1,211 is a considerable amount of money! I'm off to read more about Friends of Animals. Glad you were able to find a suitable charity.

I am so happy you raised that much money for the Animal Place. The Animal Place is very special to me. Howie the cow is my Foster son!

I'm sure I'll be buying more jewelry from you soon!
