$10 donation made to Ready for Rescue, honoring a pledge made on Facebook for an animal at high risk of euthansia at a high volume animal shelter. Animal was pulled by this rescue and is safe <3
This holiday season, we decided to switch our fundraising up a bit! We recently did tea advent calendars, where we took $5 from each advent calendar sale to raise donations to grant wishes on One Simple Wish, an organization that helps to grant wishes for children and young adults impacted by foster care, abuse and neglect.
So, thanks to all of YOU that purchased our advent calendars, we were able to raise $235 to grant wishes on One Simple Wish! Check out what wishes we were able to grant.
We granted a wish for Justin to go to the San Diego Zoo since he is a HUGE animal lover (especially cats!) and loves to volunteer at his local SPCA. Justin even messaged us back to tell us how excited he was to be able to go to the zoo on Christmas Eve this year!
We also granted a wish for Glenda to spend a day having fun at Dave and Busters, since she was so kind and donated her own time to volunteer for Habitat for Humanity! We also granted a wish for a group home child to go to the movies, and a wish to contribute toward a bday gift for a young person working hard in college to get a higher education for themselves!
Thank you all for your support of our advent calendars! You all helped to brighten someone’s day ❤️❤️#brutaliteas #teaforacause#onesimplewish #givingisgood
We were also able to make small donations to the following local area rescues to contribute towards urgent medical care needed for animals in shelters that were time-stamped for euthanasia unless pulled by a rescue.
Non Lethal Options for Animals Inc- $20
NJ Aid for Animals - $10
PURR-Philadelphia Urgent Rescue & Relief - $20
Thanks to your support of our advent calendars and donations at recent events, we were able to drop off supplies to the Volunteer Auxiliary for Animal Shelters Inc. that are always in need; Including dry and wet foods, litter, kitten formula, blankets, and treats & toys for pups and kitties! If you’re local and looking to adopt, or if you are looking for a great rescue to donate to...please give them a follow! Such a great organization that we are happy to volunteer our time with! 💕🐶🐱💕
Hello again everyone! We're happy to say we were recently able to make some donations, thanks to your generosity and support! We were able to make a donation on Paws 4 a Cure, a donation to the Volunteer Auxiliary for Animal Shelters, and a small donation to the National Canine Cancer Foundation! The donations made to Paws 4 a Cure and the Volunteer Auxiliary will help furry friends with medical treatments they are in need of, and we of course, love to contribute to the Canine Cancer Foundation in hopes that one day a cure can be found to stop this ugly disease. Again, we can't thank you enough for taking a little time out of your day at the events we attend, to chat with us, tell us your stories, and for your contributions. This something that means a lot to us, and we hope to continue to help as much as we can in the years to come. Thank you again everyone!

Friday the 13th an unlucky day?! No way! We're breaking the Friday the 13th stigma today. We made THREE Tea for a Cause donations today! We made donations to two families on Paws 4 A Cure, and a donation to the Volunteer Auxiliary for Animal Shelters Inc. (which we also volunteer for)! Since we started our Tea for a Cause last year, your support of our Detoxic Avenger blend and your kind donations at events have helped us raise a total of $525 so far. While it may not seem like a lot, it means more than you know to those that receive the help. Every little bit helps and means the world to someone whose pet has fallen ill. We hope to raise even more over the next year! Thanks for your kindness everyone :) PS - The next time you see us at an event, feel free to take a look at our binder of all those we've contributed to! 🐕❤️🐈

Well, we just made our last donations for the year!
We made two donations to families on Paws 4 A Cure and a donation to S.N.O.R.T. - Short Noses Only Rescue Team, to help pups dealing with the dreaded "C" word :(
We just want to thank you all so much for your support since we started this fundraising cause earlier in the year. We wanted to turn our heartbreak into something positive, to help others, and to keep Griffin's memory alive. Your support, donations, and the stories you've shared with us at events have done just that. It's so nice to know that there are still compassionate people out there in the world that are willing to help others.
So again, thank you all for being so awesome as always! We hope to do even better next year with our Tea for a Cause! 💕 🐕 💕
Just a quick little post to let you know what we've been up to lately! Because of your kind donations and purchases of our Detoxic Avenger blend, we were able to do two donations this month! We made a donation of $100 towards the National Canine Cancer's fundraiser to launch a new Canine Cancer Center that (if successfully funded) could potentially help so many doggies beat their battle with cancer....and at a more affordable rate for their owners! We wish them the best of luck on this venture. You can find full details for this project at: www.caninecancercenters.com
We also made a $50 donation on Petchance.org, to a family in need of some financial help for their fur baby that has cancer on the small intestine.
While we have only started our fundraising this year, and our donation amounts are relatively small in the grand scheme of things, we know in our hearts that even the smallest donations can mean the world to someone whose pet is dealing with a terminal illness. That is exactly why we will continue to keep doing what we're doing, and why we are always so appreciative to all of you for your support with this cause. Just know you're making someone's day a little brighter, and contributing to research that can help kick cancer's ass one day! <3
