We absolutely love all the posts and photos we’ve been seeing of everyone enjoying their advent calendars! It means so much to us that we’re a part of your holiday season We wanted to take this time to let you know how we were able to help others through this holiday fundraiser. This year we switched it up a little. We now have two family members in the military , and they are actually what inspired us to choose @soldiersangelsofficial as the organization to help this year. Through your purchases, we were able to make stockings full of holiday goodies to be given to deployed soldiers and veterans… AND we were able to adopt a family in need of a little help with Christmas gifts! Thanks for helping us help others for the holidays! #brutaliteas #teaforcause #soldiersangels #holidayfundraiser
When The Satanic Temple of NYC reached out to us for a fundraising collaboration for the Woodstock Farm Sanctuary, we of course had to say yes! As many of you know, fundraising is near and dear to our hearts...especially when it comes to helping animals. The Woodstock Farm Sanctuary is an organization that envisions a peaceful world rooted in respect and justice for all living beings. They
Together with TST, we created 3 custom blends for the cause: Enlightenmint, Sanctuberry, and Compassionfruit. Through your purchases of these teas, we were able to raise $675 to donate to the sanctuary, making this our most successful fundraising event yet! We've even decided to continuing selling these blends, so we can continue to donate to WFS on a quarterly basis!
Thanks again for your support! Please know whether you bought 1 package, or 10 packages...your purchase helped make a difference in the lives of the animals cared for by the Woodstock Farm Sanctuary! <3
Wyatt just wants to show you how happy he is about the supplies we brought over to the adoption room at our local Petsmart, by way of fundraising we’ve been doing since July! Because of your purchases and donations at events, we were able to buy a much needed air purifier and other miscellaneous supplies needed for the adoption room.
Side note- Wyatt is currently up for adoption through Volunteer Auxiliary for Animal Shelters Inc., a local rescue we volunteer with. He is the biggest love! On behalf of Wyatt and all the other Petsmart kitties…thank you for your kind hearts!
Here are other rescue groups we were able to make donations to:
Pinups for Pitbulls - $25
Wanna-Be Pet Rescue - $20
Project MEOW - $5
One Love Animal Rescue Group, Inc. - $5
Lend A Paw - $10
Ready for Rescue - $10
Kitten Snatchers - $10
Donations made above were either pledges honored for pets at high-risk of euthanasia in shelters (that have since been pulled and are now safe), or donations made as part of fundraising efforts for medical care of pets within a rescue group.
With events coming back around in full swing, we're excited to be able to do more fundraising again! Thanks to your support at the Darksome Art & Craft Market Out of the Crypt event, we were able to raise and donate $160 to Paws 4 a Cure! And through sales of our Detoxic Avenger blend, and from our site PURRsonaliTeas.com we were also able to donate $50 each to People for Animals and One Love Animal Rescue! Thanks so much everyone! Our next fundraiser will take place during the Darksome Art & Craft Market's Summer Darkness event, where we will take 10% of sales to buy supplies/food for The Volunteer Auxiliary for Animal Shelters, a local animal rescue group we volunteer with!
We're here to spread a little holiday cheer today!
Remember those advent calendars we sold recently as part of our holiday fundraiser?! Well...thanks to your support we were able to make some great donations this holiday season to two great organizations!
We donated $200 worth of food & supplies to the Volunteer Auxiliary for Animal Shelters Inc. (a rescue that's near and dear to our hearts) , and we also donated $250 worth of gift cards to Ocean of Love Inc that will go to two families for the holidays!
Thanks so much for making our fundraiser a success this year!
Check out where we've donated so far, thanks to sales and donations from brutaliteas & purrsonaliteas!
$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
Check Back again soon, as we plan to make more donations in the near future! AS always, We thank you for your continued support!
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
