Charitable giving for 2020
Now that we have closed the book on 2020, we're happy to share the charitable giving you've made possible with your purchases!
This year, we had two items that raised money for conservation organizations. Our "This Bag Saves Wildlife" tote bag, featuring cute illustrations of marine life, raised $55 for the Ocean Conservancy.
You may have noticed that we love monarch butterflies, so our second charity product was our "Monarch on Milkweed" enamel pin. For every pin sold, we gave $2 to the Monarch Joint Venture. Thanks to your purchases, we donated $100 to support the joint venture's efforts at protecting monarch butterflies and their habitat.
We also run a shop at the print-on-demand website Redbubble called The Snake Shop. All proceeds from this site are split between two awesome organizations: The Alongside Wildlife Foundation and Advocates for Snake Preservation. For 2020, we were able to send these organization $170.
Additionally, we donated artwork and other products to fundraisers for the following organizations:
- Colorado Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation
- The Wildlife Society, Western Section
- Walden's Puddle Wildlife Center
Thanks again for making these donations possible! We're super grateful to be able to connect with so many people who are dedicated to environmental conservation, and giving back to organizations that protect wildlife and preserve habitat is one of the most rewarding parts of running Blue Aster Studio. We're looking forward to finding new ways to contribute in 2021!
