Seven Reasons...

Seven Reasons

why EFA members should Join

our Charity of the Month Program

written by Veronica of ScrappyRat

1. It's really simple. Whether you choose donate a percentage of your shop's monthly sales or the proceeds from specific items is totally up to you! Just add up the total and send it in to the designated charity once a month via Paypal. (see links on the left hand column of our main blog).

2. Our charities rock! We check out each nominated charity to make sure your donations go to some of the worthiest animal charities out there. Your generous contributions support dedicated groups that focus their work on animal rescue and advocacy, groups that put the welfare and rights of animals first.

3. Your shop gets some good P.R. When you label your items with "TEAM EFA COTM", your cotm items are eligible for inclusion in special weekly Charity of the Month treasuries that catch the attention of new buyers.

4. Buyers DO look specifically for shops that donate. I know I've had customers specifically seek out my items because I donate to our Charity of the Month--and they don't only buy charity items :)

5. Report your $10 donation to the COTM to EFA and you get some cool advertising action. EFA will feature your Etsy Mini 1x1 on our website Sponsor page during the following month.

6. When we work together as a team, we can really help make a big difference to an organization who needs our help. When a team combines donations into a larger sum, the recipient organization can fund a particularly vital project or put it toward an urgent situation, such as surgery for an animal in need.

7. The more shops that participate, the more animals we can help. After all, it's our desire to help animals that brought us together as a team in the first place, right?

Join up !

The animals need you and our team needs the support of successful, exciting, animal-friendly shops like yours!

  1. Very well said, Veronica! And, correct me if I'm wrong, but these donations are also tax deductible, right?

  2. Excellent reasons! And you are right on every one of them! I have had people say to me that the reason they bought was because I support such and such a charity!
