Food For Thought

Has your animal rescue group or shelter adopted a vegan menu policy for their charity events? If not, why not? It only makes sense and Animal Place designed a campaign to bring this about: Food For Thought.

"In addition to dogs and cats, your shelter may rescue other animals - farmed animals -, like rabbits, horses, goats, and sheep. As with any good shelter, you strive to find forever homes for the animals you save. Yet, it may still be common to find that similar animals are served as the fare at your functions. "

For those of you that are not vegan, please don't shy away! This goal can be implemented and it has. Animal League Defense Fund, Animal Place, Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary and many others have adopted policies to respect the animals they support. 

Animal Place provides plenty of resources to help you spread the word and bring about this change to business & charity event practices.

Blessings & joy, yours truly . . . Corrinne Quinn

(PS - Animal Place will benefit from every item sold at Pin & Tack, so stop by the shops OR you can donate directly to their cause. Either works and is greatly appreciated!)

No Charm Equal To . . .

Did you know? Pin & Tack's arts & craft challenge - Craft It Up - ends on Friday.
It's an easy, peasy challenge 'cause you can create ANYTHING as long as it includes a heart or "love."
If the upcoming big L day is not inspiring enough, here is a digital creation for you . . .

I used digital papers from Jennifer Scraps, which are FREE for anyone. The best part - at least for myself - is the photos used: Apple Red Rose Thumb Tacks.

With every purchase of these or anything else in the shop, Animal Place will receive $1 from it. But you have other options to support them. Donate directly or share a craft in the challenge as every entry earns them $0.10.

I have also entered this creation into the following challenges: {PIN}spirational Challenges & Mojo Monday. Pop by there for additional crafty inspiration.

Blessings & joy, yours truly . . . Corrinne Quinn

Search: Red

When you enter "red" into the search, this is only a few delights that you will find. Red is a stand alone color, but it works with so many others. It's power, love & fun all wrapped up into one fabulous color.

{Clockwise, left to right: 1. Clothes Pins,  2. Chalkboard, 3. Magnets, 4. Thumb Tacks, 5. Clothesline, 6. Home Decor}

When you choose these red items, you support all of the animals at Animal Place. They will receive $1 from each listing sold, which will provide food, shelter and safety.
