The first ever #collarsforacause month is complete!

How did we do you ask? PRETTY DAMN WELL. Excuse my French. Actually, I don’t think damn is French. Is it? Hold on…

*Checking google*

Oh shit, it does have French origins. Ok, so I was right. Feels so good to be right, doesn’t it? It happens so rarely that I should really savor this moment. *Ahhh, sweet bliss of being right.*

Ok back to the point of this post. #COLLARSFORACAUSE DID REALLY WELL! Nothing Oakland Animal Services can retire on but for a very tiny company trying something new for the first time I am super thrilled with the results.

We gave $57 to Oakland Animal Services this month!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who purchased #collarsforacause items. I am so grateful for the success and for the ability to give to a very worthwhile cause.

If anyone is interested in donating to OAS themselves, go here => http://www.oaklandanimalservices.org/how-to-help/donate/

OAS is especially in need this month due to this horrific incident that occurred in Oakland over Memorial Day weekend.

Information on next month’s #collarsforacause charity is coming soon! Apologies for being a little delayed in getting everything going – I promise it will be worth the wait 😉

Sharing is Caring

Sharing is caring – or so my mom tells me. I’m actually a terrible sharer. I am an awesome giver (if I do say so myself) but I would like to note that giving is not the same as sharing. Sharing means giving your last three sour gummy worms to your friend. Giving is buying a second bag of sour gummy worms to give to your friend. Having reread those last two sentences I realize that I sound like a big meanie poop face and I should probably delete this post so no one knows what a grumpasarous I am. But eh – what the hell, I’m lazy and let’s face it, you guys are looking at the pictures on this post anyway. Right?

Anywho, I am very passionate about giving back to animal charities. They do SO much for our communities! Between helping educate the public, taking care of strays and providing support for owners in need – let’s face it, they deserve all the TLC we can give to them. 

That being said, I am launching #collarsforacause! Each month I will choose a new charity (this could be a rescue group, animal shelter, or any other group working towards helping animals) and a new fabric print. All profits from anything made from this print (collars, leashes, poop bag holders, etc.) will go towards the chosen charity.

I can’t wait to send a big ol’ check to the very deserving Oakland Animal Services this month. They are the most underfunded standalone shelter in the Bay Area so I’m happy to have them be the first recipient of #collarsforacause.
