Crafting For Animals Guild is a group of artists and crafters on Artfire.com who are dedicated to catering to the needs of animals by either creating and designing items for animals or by supporting and/or raising funds for charitable animal organizations.
In the Northern Hemisphere, Earth Day is April 22 - today! (October 22 is Earth Day in the Southern Hemisphere.) What are you doing to celebrate? If you don't yet have plans, there is still time to make a difference. You can write a blog post about Earth Day, send a newsletter informing other people about Earth Day. Here are some things people have said they are planning to do to celebrate Earth Day:
Volunteer at an animal shelter
Adopt a homeless animal
Adopt a homeless adult / full grown animal <--all animals are wonderful!
Replace an old dishwasher with an energy star rated dishwasher
Advocate coworkers to recycle
New Google Group
The guild forum provided by artfire is very hard to follow so I've created a Google Group for us to use. Please feel free to join at: http://groups.google.com/group/cfa-guild. Anyone may join and joining is not required to remain a CFA member.
Abandoned Wild Babies Animal Rescue is hosting their 5th annual Summer Basket Raffle. If you would like to donate any of your items to the raffle, please visit their facebook event page for more details.
