I am social media lazy and unless you follow us on Facebook, you may have missed some Bowtique updates...but this news is big enough to have its own post to share.
It's the perfect time of year to bring awareness to the "Make Mine Chocolate! campaign". A campaign that was started in 2002, by the Columbus House Rabbit Society to bring awareness to the poor rabbits that are often abandoned and surrendered to shelters after being given as Easter gifts. People often adopt these animals without full awareness of the challenges of owning a rabbit brings and then give them up once the realities of owning a rabbit set in.
All proceeds of the wool felt pins or hair clips go directly to the Make Mine Chocolate! Campaign. Their goal is to educate the public to the challenges of properly caring for rabbits and
to encourage them to purchase chocolate Easter bunnies (or stuffed toy
animals) rather than live rabbits.
For more information be sure to visit their website: http://makeminechocolate.org
or visit their FaceBook page. https://www.facebook.com/Make-Mine-Chocolate-342712376109/
After learning so much more about this problem and just how widespread it is, I am thrilled to be part of this worthy cause.
These pins and clips will be available year round and will ship internationally too!
Hoppy Easter everyone!!
