2017 Charity Campaign

Hello & Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, New Year, Valentines Day, Mothers Day & is enjoying the new bright nights of spring!

Bit of a rocky start to 2017 for me with my health playing up but now all back on track!

So whats new from me for 2017? A charity campaign! 

Can you spot the black cat?

Originally it was supposed to launch last year but with one thing on top of another it landed by the wayside but this year I'm making it a priority so I have been designing a range of items that I will be launching via my Etsy shop on Wednesday 29th March.

Catcus

Not all the items are photographed yet but the range will include:
  • Purrmaids
  • Kittycorn
  • Catuccino
  • Cathulu
  • Catcus
  • Black Cat
  • Cat silhouette badge 
Cat silhouette badges

Catch on to the theme yet? 

They are all cat based & I will be donating 50% of all the proceeds (excluding postage & packaging) to Rescue Me Animal Charity until £250 is raised to support their campaign to purchase premises.

Purrmaid

You can read all about their amazing work here.

I have thus far already raised £41 from last years dinosaur key-rings & through the sales of items in advance from people who knew I was launching this campaign!



I originally wanted to call this project The Black Cat Campaign due to my love of them (I have my own Tulip) & the stigma that still surrounds adopting black cats. Even Steph, who runs Rescue Me, said of them:  it is really tricky to re-home them and my heart always sinks a little when I find out that a cat in need is black as I know they will be with us longer than usual.

However not all the designs ended up being of black cats.

Keep you eyes peeled on my Facebook & Instagram pages to see the launch!
