Giving a little something back...

One part of our Etsy Owls team sale was to raise money for our first charitable donation. We all agreed we'd like to help out some actual real life owls, so we found this owl organization in Canada that rehabilitates owls for return to the wild but also keeps owls that cannot return to the wild, does breeding to keep the owl generations alive, and everything.

So we set out to raise money for the Owls, and over the course of the 2 week sale we raised $125!!! Our team shop donated most of it's proceeds to the charity drive and had a few sales, and several other team members donated percentages of items sold to the charity drive.

We'd like to give a little bit of owl love to Courtney, who donated by far the most money for the cause, and just say thanks for doing so much to help the Owls help some owls! Courtney runs two shops on Etsy, afabricqueen and corkyscookies , so drop by and say hello!

Also, please check out The Owl Foundation website to learn more about the amazing work they do, and if you are interested in helping them, or helping any other charity, you can visit Canada Helps or Just Give if you are interested in finding a United States based charity.
