For those of you that don't know, T started her philanthropy project last year about this time.
It was a fairly large project for a 9 year old
and I had my doubts but we could not be more proud of her.
Started because of her love for animals (and especially dogs ;))
she found a way of raising awareness and raising money for
the different local animal shelters.
She started her own blog (click here to take you to Tashi's Treats blog)
to write about her project and experiences and about the need to help raise awareness for animals.
She also opened her own Etsy shop (click here)
where she sold her own made pocket hearts.
with proceeds going to the different local shelters.
She did wonderfully with her fundraising.
But then learned quickly about disappointments. =o(
For us, her parents, she has more than met our expectations.
Truly surprising us by what she has done and how long she stayed committed.
She showed her creativity by designing her own logo and trademark.
She also learned the logistics of opening a business
and the hard work that goes into it.
She has learned amazing online skills.
As well as marketing and business skills, to name a few.
But above all,
She has learned so much about life and love.
For now, she has put Tashi's Treats aside as she concentrates on her school work.
...and hopefully she will pick up this project again in
the near future.
We would like to clear out her remaining pocket hearts and present the proceeds
which was the last shelter that she had promised to raise money for.
We have marked the hearts down considerably for faster movement.
Please support her as she tries to clear out her inventory.
they're wonderful for this month of hearts.
