As just about the entire planet knows, Australia had severe fires that burned up the continent over a 210-day span. In that time, an estimated 1 BILLION animals perished in the fires. In November, I saw a video of a koala being rescued from the fires by a woman who took off her shirt to cover him and take him to safety. This video pulled hard on my heartstrings to see him suffering in such a manner. He was taken to the vet and was treated for his wounds. He was named Lewis and was going to be added to the breeding program once he fully recovered. After a few days, his injuries were too severe to heal and the vet decided the best way to help him was to euthanize him.

I created this pin to honor Lewis and the other animals who died in the fire. The production of the pin took a very long time to complete because of the planet going into lockdown because of the coronavirus. I am going to donate the profits from the sales of this pin to the Australia Zoo. The Australia Zoo was started by Steve Irwin’s (The Crocodile Hunter) parents and is run by the Irwin’s. Just know that the money will go to a great cause and will be used to help the animals. As I send the money to the zoo, I will add images of the receipts.

I hope you will want one of my pins.

This is such a beautiful pin and it is also wonderful that the proceeds are being donated to wildlife fire cause. I am glad this pin inspired me to purchase others! It shipped swiftly and the store is great in general.

Sisu has jumped to being one of my favorite Disney characters - not just because it is a dragon, but also thanks to this gorgeously designed pin. The stunning and vibrant colors (they are just like the advertised picture, but adding a pic of mine in dimmer light as well) get me the most, but the details are amazing as well. So thrilled to be able to add this gem to my collection.

This pin meant a great deal to my family. My son Damon passed away April 2018 at the age of 13 from Osteosarcoma Bone Cancer. Our last big trip together was to Disney World because he was a Kidd's Kid from the Kid Kraddick show. So to find a Mickey pin with a yellow sarcoma ribbon was amazing. Made his mother and his twin sister cry when I gave it to them. Thank You!! Damon was a HUGE pediatric Cancer Awareness kid. He was even a brand ambassador for the American Childhood Cancer Organization. Google Damon Billeck if you ever re bored and you'll see. He would have loved this pin! Thank you!!
