Welcome to Giving Tuesday, my friend! Do you have a little bit of budget left over, after all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping? If so, I’ve got a couple of great ways that you can still treat yourself, and give back at the same time!
THISTLE DESIGNS GIVING TUESDAY
Yes – this is me! Animal lover that I am, I’ve decided that 10% of ALL sales made from my online SHOP HERE, as well as my Gallery at The Fine Art Café, today, will be donated to the Critter Care Wildlife Society.
This amazing Society is 100% donation driven. It is located on acreage here in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, and takes in all kinds of wildlife for rescue, treatment, rehabilitation and release. They also provide community based education programs at the primary level. In order to help the thousands of animals requiring it each year, Critter Care has a free internship program, and accept students from around the world. Critter Care takes in animals of all kinds, from smaller animals like raccoons and otters, to larger animals like lynx, bobcat and bears. Yes, bears!

SCRAP ‘N STAMP & VANCOUVER FOOD BANK
Each year, the wonderful people at Scrap ‘N Stamp Canada choose an organization for Giving Tuesday. This year, 10% of the day’s sales will go to the Greater Vancouver Foodbank. Very fitting, as Scrap ‘N Stamp is located in the heart of Vancouver!
Again, this organization receives no government funding, and relies solely on donations from the public, and businesses. They have a main ‘distribution’ center, as well as many outlets around the Greater Vancouver area for people in need to pick up their food.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
I know that this year has been different, and difficult, in many ways for a lot of us. So if you’re able, I hope that you’ll give to those who need it most, whether they be 2 legged or 4. Thanks so much for your ongoing support!
