Vegan Etsy teams up with SASHA to help celebrate 10th Anniversary!

SASHA Farm, the largest sanctuary of its kind in the Midwest, is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year! And the Vegan Etsy Team is excited to be part of the festivities. Team members will be donating various items to the Silent Auction that will be held during the 10th Anniversary Celebration Banquet, scheduled for March 12. Check out the SASHA website to learn more about this amazing place and about the event. And if you or your group has something to contribute, we're sure they'd love to hear from you too!

From the SASHA event announcement:

The 10th Anniversary Celebration Banquet and Silent Auction will be held at Weber's Inn in Ann Arbor on Saturday, March 12th. More details are available on the flyer, and tickets can be purchased online, at the sanctuary, or by sending a check to SASHA Farm, PO Box 222, Manchester, MI 48158. We have a great evening planned, and you don't want to miss it!

We're starting our plea for silent auction donations a little early this year... The only requirement is that the items donated are animal-friendly. The proceeds from the auction each year account for a significant portion of our income and all that money goes directly toward the care of over 250 rescued animals.

If you plan to donate this year, you can let us know by email or by calling the sanctuary at (734) 428-9617.

Hey Melissa ~ I live very close to SASHA Farm in MI & have volunteered there. Let me know if you need someone to bring the items there in person or if we are mailing them to SASHA FARM!

Thank you so much for sharing this! We're so excited about this celebration both in terms of the accomplishment it represents and also the opportunity it gives us raise funds to help more animals and share our mission with new friends. We know from past experience that handmade items are a huge hit in the auction, and support from vegan Etsy artists and crafters means a lot to us.

So, 248 huge thank yous - one from each of us hanging out in the snow at the sanctuary this morning, (minus the mice who refuse to send in their census forms) - and we hope anyone who is within driving distance can make it out to one of our events this year!
