Recent donations we’ve made are listed below. As a family, we are thankful for the business we receive and we want to give back to our local community as well as other non-profits that are dear to our hearts. Each non-profit is chosen carefully.
In addition to donating a percentage of sales, we, as a family, donate our time to several local organizations including the Huntsville Animal Shelter, Friends of Rescue, Free 2 Teach, Manna House and Meals on Wheels.
ChemoAngels is an organization that pairs up patients going through IV Chemotherapy with volunteers who write encouraging cards twice a week. It’s 100% volunteer. No admin is paid which absolutely impresses and thrills me. This non-profit has been dear to my heart for 12 years as I have volunteered as an angel in both their Chemo and Senior programs. This is a perfect fit for our snail mail enthusiasm.
Saving Paws Rescue AZ is an all-volunteer, 501 (c) (3) charitable organization in Phoenix, Arizona, dedicated to providing veterinary care, evaluation and adoptive homes for German Shepherd Dogs, Belgian Malinois and others who are left in pounds to await uncertain fate, are owner surrenders ( divorce, death, etc.) or are from abusive or negligent situations. Saving Paws helps provide a safe harbor for German Shepherds and other breeds that might otherwise be destroyed.
As an all volunteer organization with no paid staff, Saving Paws relies entirely on donations to continue their life-saving mission. Saving Paws is funded entirely by private donations and receive no government support. Most dogs for adoption are housed in foster home situations.
This organization keeps the money local and is an institute doing amazing research. Our donations are earmarked for Lupus research and given in memory of John Siegel, a beloved Huntsville native who lost his battle with Lupus.
We partnered with Peace Love and Rescued Paws by donating 100% of profits from Monogram Stationery Sets sold during their 2016 auction. This raised $115 that will go toward helping rescue dogs from unimaginable circumstances. Peace Love and Rescued Paws is 100% volunteer with 100% of money raised going straight to the animals.
As a family, we began fostering animals in need of rescue in 2014, as well as raising money for pups in need of medical attention. It is a joy and it teaches our daughters valuable lessons on giving back and taking care of those in need. We have 2 dogs and 1 cat, plus the occasional group of foster puppies and kittens. We may have a small zoo before the end of the year!!
