Goats! Charity Bloghop

Welcome to the Charity Bloghop!

I’m so excited for today….as you’ll hear the story in my video, a stamp set inspired me to get some friends together to share the idea of giving to charity in the name of a loved one….it’s not “my” idea, lots of organizations do this, but not everyone has heard about it. You can give a llama, a school scholarship for a girlgifts to save animals from abusegifts for new momsadopt a wild animal, help entrepreneurs, – there’s even a sewing machine or bolts of fabric for the perfect gift for a crafter.

Today…you get to hear from a whole bloghop full of crafters who are excited by this idea too!

The hop list is later on in this post – and I encourage you to visit ALL the blogs and leave comments so you can qualify to win PRIZES! (more info on that later too!) But for now…let’s get to them goats!

Goats: the stamp set that started this idea

The stamp set that inspired this bloghop is from Art Impressions – not only is it a hilarious goat stamp set, but fun to color too. You know me, I love coloring! I colored up the goats while telling about the idea for the hop and how gifts like this work. And my love of goats. Watch the video or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube!

Aren’t these the cutest goats!? So fun fun fun! I googled goat photos to find different interesting fur markings for my goats. 

The inside of the card – it came out so cute! I added a doodled plate, crumbs, and leftover confetti!

Start the giving!!

If you’re inspired by this bloghop to give to a charity (I suggest going through the hop and seeing all the ideas first!), then do me a solid and let me know approx how much you are donating to charity. Last year, in a variety of fundraisers, my readers gave over $6,000 to charities – and I’d love to see if we can top that together this year!


Please indicate the amount you're inspired to give:
$10 - $24$25-$49$50 - $74$75 - $99$100 - $149$150 - $200$300+
