Charitable Donation of the Month: Reef Relief

You may be curious why a couple of Minnesotans feel a duty to help protect the coral reef. Well, Tommy’s dad spent his younger years attending school in Key West, FL studying marine biology. His love of the ocean and snorkeling was passed on to the Humans.

This month we will be making a $1.00 donation for every sale to Reef Relief in Key West, FL. Reef Relief is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to improving and protecting our coral reef ecosystem.

As always, we thank you and the ocean critters thank you for shopping with us. Cheers

Charitable Donation of the Month: The Wildcat Sanctuary

Not only do we love designing and printing… but we also love critters – cats, dogs and everything in between. That is why we are happy to give back for every sale. Our donation for the month of July went to Animal Allies in Duluth. Thanks to your love of our Goods we raised a good chunk of cash for the Duluth critters.

This month we will be making a $1.00 donation for every sale to The Wildcat Sanctuary in Sandstone, MN. The Wildcat Sanctuary (TWS) is a no-kill rescue facility for wild cats. As a true sanctuary, they do not buy, breed, sell or exhibit animals. They combine natural and spacious habitats with a life free of exhibition and exploitation. TWS allows all residents to live wild at heart. TWS advocates for No More Wild Pets in order to create a world where animal sanctuaries are no longer needed. Learn more about TWS, or make a donation on your own:

Joplin Tornado Relief

The Humans recently arrived home from their Texas road trip. On the way back they made a point to stop in Joplin, MO to see first hand what an EF5 tornado looks like. It was an unbelievably sad sight to experience. While, the Humans wish they could do more than just donate cash, at least it is something. That is why we decided to make a $1.00 donation for every order placed now thru the end of June to the Joplin Humane Society. We can only imagine what both the Humans and the critters are dealing with so hopefully we can help make a small difference.

Or make a donation directly to the Joplin Red Cross HERE.
