Shop ‘Til You Drop – Etsy for Animals

Shop ‘Til You Drop – Etsy for Animals

As if Etsy wasn’t cool enough on its own, Etsy for Animals (EFA) makes it even better for those who want to shop and do something great for animals at the same time.

EFA is a group of awesome indie artists and crafts people on Etsy who are combining their extraordinary talents with their love of animals to do some good. EFA members donate 10 to 100 percent of their profits to an animal charity of their choosing, or to the groups featured charity of the month.

February’s lucky charity of the month, for example, is the Rainbow Connection Animal Foundation. Last month, it was Animal Place Sanctuary and Education Center

In 2008, more than $10,000 was donated to animal charities. Members also donate items from their shops to charity auctions, along with their time and resources to help out when they can.

The best ways to find these artists is to search for the term ‘team efa’ on Etsy. Or, if you’re in the market for something specific, check out the member page on EFA’s website, where everything is listed by category.

Your choices will range from art, jewelry and paper goods to vegan cosmetics and so much more you’ll seriously be hard pressed to leave empty handed.

Also be sure to check out the shops on February 24th for Spay Day Specials where you can help support a wonderful cause!

You can also find info on EFA on their team page, their blog, or on their BlogTalkRadio show.

Happy shopping and supporting animals, and artists, all at once!!!

How come none of this stuff surprises me anymore?

My lab mix LOVES baths, and I have a long-haired collie who would rather sit in the rain than come in…

Amazing video and a fascinating animal. Thanks for sharing.
