do you love animals?

the first thing i did when i started my company...before i sold my first item...was to create our vision statement.  the "road map" if you will as to the guiding principles of how the company would be run.  read the entire document here.  one plank in the statement is:

"we believe companies need to clearly articulate their philanthropic position so consumers can make informed choices as to the brands they support. napa farmhouse 1885™ is actively involved in our community by supporting not–for-profit groups working to green the planet, care for animals and improve quality of life for people in need. we sponsor neighborhood events and contribute at least 5% of total net profits to not-for-profit organizations."

we have been supporters of napa humane since i started napa farmhouse 1885, usually by donating to their annual event, "cause for the paws".  this year we are walking...and sponsoring a team...for their first walk for the animals.

so....i'm moving my paws for the cause! (and mosey is walking too)

that's right… we are proudly walking in napa humane's inaugural Walk for Animals on august 5, and need your support!

because every animal deserves a healthy life in a happy home, i'm collecting donations to sponsor my participation and meet my fundraising goal!

100% of the proceeds go to the amazing programs and services napa humane offers:
• affordable spay/neuter services
• weekly low-cost vaccination and microchipping clinics
• shelter support services, including the mobile adoption program
• humane education programs serving adults and children alike

Donating through this website is simple, fast, totally secure, and the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts. (checks and cash are appreciated forms of donations, too, of course—just let me know if you'd prefer to donate offline!)

and hey, you don't have to sit on the sidelines… if you live in/near napa, you can walk with us! register and join team napa farmhouse 1885.  (and for those of you who dislike asking people for me i am in this can just register and walk...that would be a big help!)  the walk is short...only a mile...your dog can walk too...and registered walkers get a t-shirt and "goodie bag".  who wouldn't want a goodie bag??!!  here is some additional info from the napa humane website:

100% of proceeds benefit Napa Valley’s pets and their people.

Join us for the inaugural Walk for Animals – a fun Napa Humane event walking a one-mile route through Downtown Napa (with or without a pooch!) in support of pets throughout the Napa Valley.

This short walk goes miles and miles for animals!

Beginning and ending at Veterans Memorial Park on Main Street, registered walkers will receive a Walk for Animals t-shirt and a goodie bag, and enjoy live music, doggie contests, our Napa Humane puppet show, "The Right Pet for Princess Penny," give-aways, and activities with our pet-centric sponsors as we walk together to raise funds for Napa Humane – serving Napa Valley pets and the people who care for them.

many thanks for your support, and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate, too!  once again, if you are able to donate (any amount would be so helpful), please click here to get started.

thank you!
