Valentines Day doesnt have to mean tons of processed sugars and dairy, it can mean compassion and love!  This Valentine's Day you can order a Vegan Craft Sample bag for your love, and know that it is all vegan and all compassion!
Vegan Craft Samples receive samples of handmade items from Etsy shops around the world, puts them into reusable hand stenciled tote bags and sells them.  Everything in these bags is vegan and cruelty free and 100% profits from each bag goes to a different sanctuary each time.  Valentine's Day 2010 sample bag profits go to Pigs Peace Sanctuary

Small bags come with 8-10 samples and are $15

Large bags come with 23-25 samples and are $35

Help Save 3 bulls from slaughter, allow them to live their entire lives!

Help Save 3 Bulls from Being Slaughtered
My friend Jodi of This Is It! Creations just found out that the 3 bulls who graze on their land were scheduled to be slaughtered today. They asked the owner if he would consider selling them the bulls instead and he has agreed. But he needs them to pay the full amount of $3600 in just under two weeks time.

These three are amazing animals. They have been named Pooka Cow (the brown one), Spotty Friend, and Less Spotty Friend. They are only 2 years old and have many more years of happy lives to live.

I will be donating 100% of all sales from my Holistically Heather store on etsy until 13th Feb 2010 towards these beautiful creatures.

Please help Jodi and her family save these boys through donations, networking and getting the word out to everyone you know.

Donate here:

Also, if you would rather mail a check, please send it to:

This Is IT! Creations
P.O. Box 1252
Jacksonville, OR 97530

Future of these animals? Jodi says, "We've been asked where the cows will go if we do raise enough money to save them - they will stay here, at least for the short term. We have 11 acres of land, a barn, and a stream. We are planning to create a line of products where all of the profits will go toward their care (hay, vet bills, fence mending, etc.) If we can find a loving family with enough land to adopt them, we are definitely open to that as well. :)"

Thank you in advance for all your help!
