I am honored to be a participating artist in the KeepItHandmade Instagram Artist Charity Auction…
Each artist was asked to choose a foundation and a percentage of their proceeds to go to a cause of their choosing. Here are the items I will have up for bidding and the foundations I have chosen for each. Clicking on each image will bring you to where you can bid on that item starting tomorrow November 4th at 8pm EST. Bidding is done by commenting on the posts.
My inner Deet gelfling essence has been in full swing lately! For those of you who are not Jim Henson geeks, stay tuned for a future post that will help make sense of what I just said and in the mean time just keep reading on…
Well, I am back at it again. I have donated another one of my handmade creations to a wonderful cause. This one being another online Instagram charity auction. This time I am re-joining forces with The Wishmasters Project to help raise money for Adelaide & Hills Koala Rescue who are doing wonderful things to help save the koalas from the bush fires in Australia.
The item I have donated is one of my limited edition Batty Skelerfly Barrettes with a starting bid of only $5.00!
Right now window shopping has begun on the Wishmasters Instagram page. This means that all the items that have been donated by artists and vendors are being posted to give people the chance to like and share them before the actual bidding opens THIS Friday, February 7th at 9pm EST..
Once the auction goes live you can then go to my item (and any of the other items) posted on their Instagram posts and bid (in $1 increments)! 100% of the proceeds from every item in this auction will be donated to the koala rescue. That is right. All of the artists and vendors who donated their items will not be making any profit from their items and creations so that we can raise the biggest amount possible for the cause.
So come join forces with us! Not only can you help by bidding on the items on Friday you can also help by bringing awareness to the auction. Go like the item posts, share the posts and even share this blog post with your connections and followers! Let’s save our furry little koala friends!
Now speaking of furry friends! A couple of weekends ago I got to enjoy a wonderful day date with my husband. We attended Wild Fest where we got to get up close and personal with some amazing animals rescued by various sanctuaries. I even got to pet quite a few of them. Here are a few photos from the event….
Since then I purchased an Incredible Bats shirt to help raise awareness for them. I am happy to know that the money I paid for the shirt will now go to some of those adorable new furry friends I made.
I wanted to share this with my Freaky Fanatics because this card goes out to you as well. Any of you that purchased a Linda Blair Fundraiser item in my shop is helping keep their foundation strong! As you know part of the proceeds of these items that I have made go to her foundation. There are still items available for those who love dogs, the Exorcist or just want to help! Click here to check out the items that are left! Get a little something while giving back to a great cause!
As you may have read in some of my past posts or in the Back Bone section of my website that I have helped raise money with my artwork in numerous ways. You may have also read about the items I have created to help raise money for Linda Blair’s Worldheart Foundation. I received a newsletter email from the foundation today reaching out for help. They are currently low on funds and are asking that people help spread the word to get more donations. So because of that I would like to remind everyone about the adorable dog inspired barrettes and pins that I still have available in my Etsy shop. They are currently only $6.00 and every time one is purchased I donate 50% to Linda’s foundation.
I currently have 3 pins and 1 small barrette left for purchase…
Not only is it nice to get a little something when helping a wonderful foundation, but it’s also a wonderful reminder that you did!
