Defenders of Wildlife creates custom donation form for EFA

Defenders of Wildlife
creates a custom donation form
for Team EFA members !
written by Nicole of brizel4TheAnimals

Defenders of Wildlife was Team EFA's September Charity of the Month. They are a wonderful organization dedicated to the preservation of native wilderness & wildlife (click HERE to read about them on the EFA blog).

One of our EFA members, who is an avid supporter of Defenders of Wildlife, asked me to find out if DOW could create a Paypal option for receiving our donations.

Some of us donate to Defenders of Wildlife based on our sales all year long... so Carol of faeriegood was on to a great idea ! I approached Cat Lazaroff, DOW's Communications Director, who was very receptive to our desire to create an opportunity for our organizations to continue to work together.

I'm very pleased to announce that Defenders of Wildlife has now put together a customized donation form for Team EFA members... which accepts Paypal as a form of payment... so making a donation to this grand organization is now easier than ever !

USA based EFA members can now submit their DOW donations via Paypal or Credit Card here: http://donate.defenders.org/etsy
and international EFA members... can submit them here: http://donate.defenders.org/etsyintl

This fun new customized form has this text on it:

Defenders of Wildlife Thanks Etsy for Animals... Defenders of Wildlife was thrilled to be selected as the September 2010 “charity of the month” by Etsy for Animals! Many of our members and activists are strong supporters of Etsy as well, and were delighted to have this unique way to help support both Defenders and the fine artists and craftmakers of Etsy."

Once a donation has been made...
a personalized thank you note appears:

Team EFA is thrilled to be supporting Defenders of Wildlife... some of our members have begun to use a specific tag on listings that benefit DOW so if you love Defenders of Wildlife & you'd like to join us in fund raising for them throughout the year, please tag your designated product listings with: team efa defenders or if you prefer with two seperate tags: team efa, defenders. This will make it easier for me and other members to find your listings for fun future Treasury making !

THANKS so much for supporting
Defenders of Wildlife :)


  1. Yeah! Thanks for making it so handy, I just sent in my donation and will hopefully have more to follow as my items sell. Originally I targeted wolves and will continue to do so because their struggle is always formost in my heart, but I also hope to branch out with some of the other endangered animal embroideries I've been collecting so that I can promote their other campaigns and send more donations to this wonderful organization.This will make it so convenient and easy. I'm so glad they want to continue the collaboration!

  2. That's awesome! Great work reaching out the organization. The response from them is truly amazing.


Please leave a positive comment :)
We shall publish it as soon as it is approved...
THANKS for visiting !
