I wanted to share with you a letter
that I received from Rodger Schlickeisen
- President & CEO of Defenders of Wildlife -
EFA's Charity of the Month
during the month of September.
"Dear Nicole, and the rest of the great people at Team EFA.
I wanted to write and thank you personally for selecting Defenders of Wildlife as the recipient of your September fund raising efforts. We're delighted to have the support of such creative, energetic people!
It's been particularly nice to read all of the detailed blog posts you've written about Defenders' work, and to see the comments from your community members about your love for animals and your support of our efforts. We've gotten good response to our own posts to our blog and social media channels as well - there are a lot of Etsy fans among our supporters!
Our communities certainly share an appreciation for our nation's wildlife. Hopefully this month's collaboration has been as beneficial for EFA, as it has been for Defenders of Wildlife.
I was thrilled to receive a letter with such personal touch... and omg! included with this lovely letter was an adorable sea turtle plush ! How does it get better than that ? lol
Turtle will be once again making a journey... as she will be sent on to Heather Windmiller as gratitude for all her tremendous efforts in writing articles for our DOW campaign last month. CONGRATS & THANKS to Heather- you deserve it :)
The work to assist Defenders of Wildlife will, of course, continue... future articles are already on the schedule and will be published here on the EFA blog. Those EFA members who would like to continue to donate a portion of their sales should consider tagging those products with DEFENDERS. This will enable Treasury Makers, such as myself, to pick up on those listings for future marketing promotion. Brizel4TheAnimals will continue to donate 10% of all Silk Tapestry Box sales to Defenders of Wildlife as well as 10% to current & future EFA cotm.
If you'd like to make a donation to Defenders, now or in the future, you will find the quick link to their website on the left hand column of this blog, click their logo or HERE to arrive to their donation form. Once you are done making a donation, please remember to report the donation on the EFA website- click HERE to make that report.
A special THANKS to the COTM group & to all
those who support Defenders of Wildlife !
