Don't gimmie no bull... gimmie three!


It was a fantastic first week of fundraising for the three bulls who need our help: Pooka Cow, Spotty Friend, and Less Spotty Friend. Thanks to the efforts of an extensive and tireless effort, something in the neighborhood of $1600 has been raised! This is great news.

But we're in the home stretch now - we must reach a grand total of $36oo in the next five days! Let's not even talk about what would happen if we didn't get there, because we are going to make this happen.

If you'd like to contribute to the cause, there's plenty of great ways to do so. Of course you could just go ahead and chip in - we'd really appreciate it! You could also go shopping at one of the fabulous shops which is donating a portion of proceeds to saving the bulls. The list of shops participating has been growing by the day, and currently looks like this:

thisisit.etsy.com - donating 100% of sales on both 2/3 and 2/10
veganosaurus.etsy.com - donating 50% of sales through 2/13
mvegan5.etsy.com - donating 10% of sales through 2/15
