Help CCAPS and enter contest! (a fellow CFA member) has offered to donate 100% of the profits from sales of May at her Artfire and Etsy sites to the cats of the Columbia Country Animal Protection Society. To spur sales, she is holding a fun contest. Below, you will find what she has to say:

Over on my Wordpress blog, I blogged about my cat, Manny, in Manny the Rescue Cat - Part I and Part II. He had a tough life but still manages to be the sweetest cat ever, and I am blessed to have him.

Last month, I joined the Crafting for Animals Guild on Artfire. The idea was that I would donate a percentage of my profits to my local animal shelter, the Columbia Country Animal Protection Society. But I haven’t had any sales on Artfire, and so have had nothing to donate.

I want to remedy that this month. So, in honor of Manny, the most handsome cat in the world - even if he does have one eye, no teeth, and only part of a tail, I am holding a contest to encourage sales and traffic at my site. The prize is a beautiful pair of AA Peruvian chalcedony and apatite earrings inspired by the color of Manny’s remaining eye. Along with this, I am giving 100% of the profit from each item sold on my Artfire and Etsy sites to the cats of CCAPS this month.

There are different two ways to win; you can do one or both to increase your chances. The contest will go until May 31, and then I will draw a winner from the entrants.

1) Post a comment here or at my blog about your personal animal rescue experience or animal volunteerism. Make sure you give me contact information (email, blog link, etc) so I can reach you if you are the winner.

2) Order something from my Artfire site. You get a chance to win for each item you purchase. My Etsy site is fair game, too.

I will draw one name to be the winner at the end of the month.
