We made it!

Hooray! With my wonderful customers’ help, I was able to donate $500 to Conservation Northwest, a donation that was matched.

$455 was the grand total of my proceeds, a figure I didn’t think was possible most of the way through the month, with December a little slower than usual for me. I was really touched that customers who had just purchased items went back and added to their orders to help the cause. Thank you so much for caring! I had only a little ways to go to round this up to my goal of $500.

In an email from CNW, I was told that the contribution, “matched by another generous donor—will help gain a conservation easement for 201 acres on the Gotham Ranch near Republic, WA. Getting this prime wildlife habitat under permanent protection from mining and development is essential for the future of lynx, wolverine, wolves, elk, and other iconic Northwest wildlife and vital for linking the Cascades to the Rockies.”
