I received an email from the BCSPCA today – a thank you for the donation made because ….you all love to knit! A portion of all purchases go directly to animal and environmental welfare groups throughout the year. The BCSPCA is one of those groups.
Why do I donate directly to specific organizations and don’t post an icon for the 1% donation group others chose to support? Well for me, it’s important that every bit on the money goes to the animals – otherwise the groups get a cut for collecting and distributing the funds. It works for lots of people…I chose to do it differently.
So the next time you buy a skein of yarn (or a handwoven textile), know that part of your purchase went to help animals – and the environment – where it’s most needed.
