I just posted this in my shop announcement is it TMI? (too much info)

The Members of LEST are having a "Just Give" promotion for the Month of August. Members have chosen Charities that are important to them and will donate a certain percentage of their August sales to their charity of choice.

I have chosen the Arthritis Foundation: www.arthritis.org
Mission: The Arthritis Foundation is the largest private, not-for-profit contributor to arthritis research in the world.

I myself suffer from the debilitaing Auto-Immune disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis. My disease has failed to respond to any of the available treatment options. Research is underway and two new drugs will be introduced this year but more research is needed to help the millions of people (mostly women) who suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and its crippling effects.

I will gladly be donating 50% of all August sales directly to the Arthritis Foundation, Your purchase Will make a difference!

This is what I have

For the entire month of August I will be donating 50% of the $ received from my sales to our local SPCA The Charlotte County SPCA, www.petfinder.com/shelters/NB01.html they are finally getting their own building and need funding to finish the building and to keep housing stray cats and finding homes for lost dogs.

Check out the forum to see what other LEST members are participating and what charities the are supporting in our "Just Give" promotion! This includes special orders so if you find something on my website that you want lets see if we can make a deal and help some homeless pets!

How do you put those Hearts between things in your profile Cindy???????
