Here at Greenbark Gummies we strive to offer you dog tips that help you be a responsible, happy dog owner—with a conscience. Our dog tips this week revolve around checking out PETA’s new online thrift store—WebThriftStore (link: http://peta.webthriftstore.com/). If you aren’t aware of PETA, which stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, these valiant animal soldiers work tirelessly towards saving animals from human-imposed cruelty and torture. Of course, our cherished customers are huge proponents of their work in animal rights (because animals—of course—have rights!!!), and we as a community have a deep love and appreciation for animals.
None of us ever want to see an animal in distress…which is why we LOVE this new concept from PETA…but this doesn’t happen in bubble. PETA needs our support.
PETA’s wonderful new store lets you put all your excess clothes, accessories, furniture and children’s toys shopping to a wonderful cause—the protection of beautiful, defenceless animals (because not all animals are as blessed as our pampered pooches). The beauty of this new fundraising effort is that it allows you to raise money for a good cause—with the purchases you’ll be making anyways.
But wait—there’s more! PETA doesn’t just want the power of your well-intentioned purchases—it also wants you to shed unwanted, lightly-used items by donating them to the cause! PETA’s WebThriftStore is always in need of donated items, especially clothing, electronics (have an old cellphone?), household items and more. So—let’s all get to some ahead-of-the-curve spring cleaning and dig out a few things that are cluttering our homes…and donate them to a cause that is near and dear to us all.
“PETA’s members and supporters are very passionate about our mission, and many will jump at the opportunity to support us by donating their excess stuff, while de-cluttering their homes at the same time,” says Michelle Cehn, Community Fundraising Manager at PETA. Doug Krugman, CEO of WebThriftStore echos PETA’s enthusiasm for PETA’s effort when he says that “to partner with [WebThriftStore] such a substantial global brand reinforces the significance of our platform as a complementary way for raising money and not having to ask supporters for more cash.”
