EFA Artists Helping Animals Birthday Bash

EFA Artists Helping Animals is a team of more than 500 animal lovers with individual shops on Etsy. The EFA Team Store is a cooperative and all volunteer shop that donates all profits to the EFA Animal Charity of the Month, an animal charity of choice nominated by an EFA member. Since the opening of the EFA Team Store in September 2007, the store has provided over $4,200 of charitable relief to animal organizations! To celebrate this amazing accomplishment along with their 1st Birthday, EFA members are offering a 20% off coupon valid from September 15 to 30. This coupon is redeemable at the EFA Team Store as well as over 150 EFA member stores. Each shop has its own unique coupon code; however, any coupon code can be used in any EFA member’s shop. In fact, there is a contest for the members who bring in the most sales for their code. For example, the code for Moon’s Harvest is “MOON.” For more information and a list of participating stores, see the EFA Artists Helping Animals website.

September profits of the EFA Team Store profits will be going to the Highland County Humane Society, a no-kill shelter that serves a very large rural area in Ohio. EFA member, Tammy, who volunteers at the shelter, nominated the organization. Tammy says, “This shelter cares for all the stray, sick, injured, and ‘throw-away’ animals in my area. Although more people have been dropping off animals, fewer people have been donating. They do not like to turn any away, but without help they may have to. They are not just in need, they are in desperate need!” Members of EFA can contribute items from their individual shops for sale in the EFA Team Store, with 100 percent of the profits going to the Charity of the Month. In addition, many members of EFA donate 10 to 100 percent of their sales or profits to either the EFA Charity of the Month or other animal charities. As of June 2008, EFA members had donated almost $10,000 to various animal charities in the United States. This is a great opportunity to get a jump-start on holiday shopping while contributing to a very important charitable organization.
