Update on sales benefitting manatees

We (my customers and I) have reached 74% on the way to making $500 to contribute to the Save the Manatee Club by April 15. Yesterday I received a wonderful note from a customer who also loves manatees: 

I just wanted to say that the Save the Manatee Club has been one of my favourite charities for many years. Even though I live in Canada (and have 6 to 7 months of grey and often cold weather), I've been fortunate to visit Florida a few times, and have seen Manatees in the wild, swimming and resting and rolling around in the rivers and marinas around Fort Myers and Sanibel areas. They are beautiful, gentle creatures that need so much more care and attention than ‘we’ as a society do for them. I love animals and nature very very much. Please keep up the great work in getting the word out.

By my best estimate, there is a possibility of exceeding the $500 goal, and I would definitely not stop before April 15. 30% of your purchase price from my web store and my Etsy shop will go to this cause. Let’s see how much difference we can make for manatees!
