Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop!


This is the first stop on the hop!

This Blog Hop will work a little differently than our past ones. We give free SVGs all the time, and this time, we are asking YOU to give back to the Animals by donating to our fundraising campaign "Save the Animals". By donating, you can earn exclusive SVGs. Here is a look at the donation levels. And as a BONUS since your donation is going to a charity, its a tax write off!! So keep your receipt!

Here is an example of the donation screen.. When donating, please make sure to include your email address under "personal note" so that we can send you the SVGs that pertain to your donation level (it will not be published on the website)




Each person in this hop picked one animal to represent today. I picked Whales, of course! And here is a picture and some facts that I want to share with you before we get to my project... Did you know...

During the 15 years of whale capture in Washington and British Columbia:

275 TO 307 WHALES WERE CAUGHT

55 WERE TRANSFERRED TO AQUARIUMS

12 OR 13 DIED DURING CAPTURE OPERATIONS


For more information about Whales being captured for our entertainment.. click HERE


 Please do not support Sea World or other Marine life parks that capture animals for your entertainment.

Now on to my project.. I made cards with some of the files you get for donating!!

NEW from SVG Cutting Files is this Arched Top Card Base! It goes perfectly with the round save the animal SVGs.


From Jaded Blossom I used Mini Tag Dies and Thank You is from Kind Thanks stamp set.


Here is a close up of the whale one since that is the animal I am spotlighting in my post :)


Thank you so much for checking out our Blog Hop.

What a fabulous way to bring awareness and craft!!! you are always inspiring Candace!

Christina Davies said...

What a great one to start with, why they bait these magnificent mammals I will never understand. Loved your project

Yvonne Morentin said...

omg... your creations are awesome. I was happy to donate, after all the animals suffer because of us humans. In my home we do not support Sea World or Any place that captures & puts on display animals that should roam free... Like I tell my kids, how would people like it if they were kidnaped and forced to live in a place the size of a bathtub and they had to be, live, eat & void all in the same place. Not to mention have people come by to watch them everyday... I am pretty sure they would not like it.

Threadbear said...

Candace these all turned out beautiful. I remember looking at the sea world documentary. How the whales were taken. It was sad. I did not know this fact till I had seen this documentary.

Nelsa Olayon said...

What a way to raise awareness for the Orca whales. Donating to such a worthy cause was easy. Love how your cards also raises awareness to such a worthy cause.

Whales are my favourite too. I watched Blackfish not too long ago and it absolutely broke my heart. I remember going to SeaWorld as a kid and thinking how amazing it was, and now that I'm older i feel guilty about it. Beautiful projects, and a wonderful cause :)

shawn box said...

Love your cards. TFS!

Jeanne said...

Wow! These are so cute! And I didn't know that about whales. We visited Sea World many years ago...but this definitely makes me think more about animals in captivity.
