Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Save the Animals Charity Blog Hop!


If you're here from Crystal's Creative Corner, then you're in the right place. If not then you will want to start at the beginning HERE

This Blog Hop will work a little differently than our past ones. We give free SVGs all the time, and this time, we are asking YOU to give back to the Animals by donating to our fundraising campaign "Save the Animals". By donating, you can earn exclusive SVGs. Here is a look at the donation levels. And as a BONUS since your donation is going to a charity, its a tax write off!! So keep your receipt!

Here is an example of the donation screen.. When donating, please make sure to include your email address under "personal note" so that we can send you the SVGs that pertain to your donation level (it will not be published on the website)




Each person in this hop picked one animal to represent today. I picked Elephants. There are so many websites and videos out there showing the abuse these poor animals undergo in order for us to take our families to the circus. As you can imagine, the situation with elephant abuse is just as concerning as that of the whales at Sea World.
 
 
Here's a website with lots of information on the topic: CLICK

 
 

Now on to my project.. 
 
So for a happy take on the elephant, I made a cute little birthday card...

Thank you so much for checking out our Blog Hop.

Here is the line up for the hop! Next up is the talented STEFANI

  4. your creation is adorable... and yes, it is horrible that circuses even exist... my parents took my kids & I to one and we were horrified at the huge animals in such small cages, the elephants, Clydesdales and other big animals in a row out in the parking lot so attendees could walk the line and take photos... my kids did not like it and that was the first and last time they have ever been to a circus. The video is awful... it is even worse when you realize that these trainers use bullhooks with spikes to poke & force them to learn these stupid tricks... thanks for sharing the video.

  11. Elephants are such gentle giants. I agree with you completely, the plight of the elephant is as equally concerning the orca and all the other animals shown so far. Way to raise awareness.

  15. I have heard so many stories about how elephants have been known to express grief, and show sadness, and it breaks my heart that humans can be so cruel to such innocent creatures. On a brighter note, I love your card, it's very cheery :)
