In an effort to continue to encourage STJ fans and patrons to help support animals in need, I asked Carrie of SnipPets to compiled a list of 10 animal organizations that she would love to see people recognize. These "top 10" facilities have thus far shown to be wonderful examples of animal rights and care.
Please take a gander below and look to see if any speak to your heart and how you may be able to help.
Anyone who donates money directly to our STJ campaign will receive additional chances to win a door prize for every dollar donated! $5.00=5 additional entries, etc... As, always be sure to tell me what pieces you like best ;)
You will also receive each one of our limited edition SpookyTimeJingles postcards. Each year we introduce a new series of postcards that each artist receives to send with each STJ sale as well as being used at the National Halloween Convention.
I will send you ALL 3 of our postcards for free (including our brand new one which features Chris Klingers design exclusively for STJ) just for making a donation of any amount! If you are a postcard, Halloween or Christmas collector of memorabilia, you will love these!
Once you make a donation, contact me directly with your info so I can send you, your cards and enter you correctly for a door prize!
