Usually each month, TEAM EFA designates one animal charity as our Charity of the Month (aka COTM).

During the month of August, Team EFA's Charity of the Month is ANYTHING GOES… which means that efa cotm members who participate in our COTM program will be able to select from any of our last 11 charities when making their donations.

As is becoming tradition during the quieter summer month of August... patrons, sponsors & members have a renewed opportunity to look back on EFA's 2011/12 COTM charities and assist one or several of these fabulous organizations.

Here are the charities that our COTM program will be supporting during this month… The links to our team blog articles are provided, from there you can get further information:

Arctic Rescue

Gentle Barn


RatBone Rescues


Safe Haven Equine Rescue & Retirement


Life's Little Paws


Feral Cat Rescue Project


Chicago English Bulldog Rescue

North Star Rescue


German Shepherd Rescue of New England


Baldwin County Humane Society (BARC)


Urban Animal Alliance


As per usual, Team EFA will be featuring products and items that benefit our COTM program throughout the month of August with weekly Etsy COTM Treasuries... put together by our COTM Treasury Leader, Susan of SusanNeedleHands.etsy.com. These Treasuries are in turn promoted on EFA's Fb fan page, Twitter and Pinterest accounts.


Team EFA promotes COTM during the month...

* with weekly COTM specific Treasuries

* on our COTM website page

* on our main team blog

* through our social media channels (Facebook & Twitter & Pinterest)

* through EFA's Teams & Yahoo Groups

* by encouraging COTM members to use our COTM logo in their Etsy listings

* by encouraging team members to join our COTM program... EFA members interested in doing so can read all about it on our Charity of the Month website page: efaartistshelpinganimals.org/charities.htm

* EFA members whom donate $10 or more to this charity this month will become a COTM Sponsor and receive a free Etsy mini ad on EFA's website the following month


Thanks so much for your consideration & enjoy shopping with members of Team EFA !

Has SoiDog ever been a COTM? I just saw something on care2causes about them... a large dog rescue from the dog meat trade. Ugh. I looked at their site to see what they do. They cover several countries. If we haven't used them before as a COTM, perhaps we might consider it.

Hi Rebecca :)

You can see the list of past cotms on our charity website page here: efaartistshelpinganimals.org/charities.htm

efa members, such as yourself, who participates in our cotm program may nominate charities by filling out this form: efaartistshelpinganimals.org/charitynominations.htm

If it meets our requirements and is approved by our COTM Co-Leader who looks over the information and researches on line to make sure they have no citations and such... then a charity's name is entered in our monthly pool until it is eventually picked.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing your nominations !

Come see our new fun kids' treasury for Team EFA COTM:


If you would like one of your items featured in next week's treasury, simply tag a few items from your shop "team efa cotm" and pledge to donate proceeds from those items to our Charity of the Month.

Remember, it's your choice from the past 12 charities for the month of August!

Alright team, come support our new COTM treasury featuring summer and fall items from team members who pledge to donate proceeds to any of our past 12 charities of the month!


Ever wondered how you can get featured in one of these weekly team treasuries? It's easy, just tag some of the items in your shop "team efa cotm" (without the quotes) so I can find them. Then donate a portion of your sale price to the charity of the month.

I'd love to have even more items and shops to feature in my weekly treasury so we can spread the love!
