Win a Custom Handmade Animal Necklace AND Help an Animal in Need!

If you follow me on facebook, twitter, pinterest or this blog, you KNOW I love animals. Looking at my store, you can see a lot of great animal necklaces too! What you may not know, is that I try to give back to the community in as many ways as possible through my creations. I also love giving you the ability to feel like you are making a difference! One of the causes that I am most involved with is helping animals in need. I raise money through sales of my animal necklaces primarily for the SPCA (animal welfare organization in Montreal). Learn more about my charitable work here.

I wanted to get the word out to all of you that you can treat yourself and help out an animal in need by buying one of my animals necklaces and what better way then to have a Give-away!!? Here are the details:

Prize: I am giving away a custom animal necklace of your choice: choose an animal I already have in stock, or any animal at all that holds a special place in your heart! Have a pet ferret? I can do that! Want me to stamp his name on there? SURE, why not? Pretty cool prize, right? What makes it cooler is that I’ll donate 10% of the retail worth of the necklace that I make you to the SPCA! yay! everyone wins!
