A letter of gratitude...

I wanted to share
a letter of gratitude
that I received from Rodger Schlickeisen
- President & CEO of Defenders of Wildlife -

I had nominated DOW for Team EFA's (Etsy For Animals) Charity of the Month program & they were chosen as our COTM for the month of September.

"Dear Nicole, and the rest of the great people at Team EFA.

I wanted to write and thank you personally for selecting Defenders of Wildlife as the recipient of your September fund raising efforts. We're delighted to have the support of such creative, energetic people!

It's been particularly nice to read all of the detailed blog posts you've written about Defenders' work, and to see the comments from your community members about your love for animals and your support of our efforts. We've gotten good response to our own posts to our blog and social media channels as well - there are a lot of Etsy fans among our supporters!

Our communities certainly share an appreciation for our nation's wildlife. Hopefully this month's collaboration has been as beneficial for EFA, as it has been for Defenders of Wildlife.

Thanks again,
Rodger Schlickeisen

handwritten note:
We are extremely grateful for your help"

I was thrilled to receive a letter with such personal touch... and included with it was an adorable sea turtle plush ! How does it get better than that ? lol

Turtle will be once again making a journey... as she will be sent on to Heather of thebluewindmill as gratitude for all her tremendous efforts in writing a variety of articles for our DOW campaign last month.

The work to assist Defenders of Wildlife is, of course, never ending... My Etsy shop brizel4TheAnimals will continue to donate 20% of animal themed Silk Tapestry Box sales to animal charities- 10% to Defenders of Wildlife as well as 10% to EFA's continuing cotm program.
