WHAT IS CHARITY OF THE MONTH ?
Each month, TEAM EFA designates one animal charity as our Charity of the Month (aka COTM). All EFA Charities of the Month is the charity of choice of at least one EFA member.
Team EFA promotes COTM during the month...
* on our COTM website page
* on our main blog
* through our social media channels (Facebook & Twitter)
* through EFA's Teams & Yahoo Groups
* with weekly COTM specific Treasuries
* by encouraging COTM members to use our COTM logo in their Etsy listings
* by rewarding EFA members that donate $10 or more to our COTM (see COTM Sponsorship)
HOW CAN EFA MEMBERS
PARTICIPATE IN OUR COTM PROGRAM ?
EFA members who choose to donate a portion of their product sales to EFA's Charity of the Month can tag those listings with: team efa cotm. You may also use charity as a tag; and if the proceeds amount is 100% you can use donation as a supplemental tag.
If after the month is done & your products are still tagged 'team efa cotm' then those products will go to benefit our next COTM. If you wish to donate a percentage to another charity, including a -previous- cotm, please remove 'cotm' from your tag.
Using these tags helps to identify your pledge and makes it easier for shoppers & treasury makers to locate your products.
Please note that Charity of the Month Members can also use our Team's 'Sales Benefit COTM' logo to upload in their product listing ! (as shown above)
Become a COTM sponsor !
ANY current EFA member who is able to make & report a donation of $10 and up during the month which coordinates with our COTM becomes a COTM Sponsor for the month.
You are not required to have any shop product listings tagged with 'cotm' to become a COTM Sponsor. As a thank you gift, Team EFA will feature your Etsy Mini 1x1 on EFA's website Sponsor page during the following month.
