So, they were telling me at the shop that I’ve talked a lot about myself and the shop, but I haven’t said anything about the organizations we work with. And I do help with the work. Us cats don’t sleep all day, you know.
Veterans and Animals
The first group we work with is Animal Assisted Therapy Programs of Colorado, based in Lakewood at the Barking C.A.A.T. Ranch. They use dogs, cats (a good choice, in my opinion), horses, goats and other animals for therapy for a scope of individuals.
The AATPC also offers services to veterans and their families in the form of readjustment counseling. This includes treatment options such as employment counseling, bereavement counseling for families of active duty soldiers, and treatment for ailments such as PTSD.
To raise money for this noble program, Orange Kat LLC has given one dollar to AATPC for every plaque sold through our Amazon and Etsy pages and website, resulting in a $155 donation. What we at the Orange Kat shop are especially excited about is that this amount will double (if
not more than double) when the holiday season hits. I’m purring just thinking about it!
To help out with the function of the Barking C.A.A.T. ranch, we also donate some of our eco-
friendly household cleaners, as well as volunteering time each month.
Also, a new face recently came to the ranch. His name is Sir Sigmund Hook, and he does just fine with three legs. But that’s to be expected; us orange felines do well no matter what number of limbs we have.
“Wine is the most civilized thing in the world.” – Ernest Hemingway
We’ve also been working to create glasses for United Healthcare Children’s Foundation events. We already made glasses for an event in Chicago a few months ago, and are currently making etched wine glasses for another event being held in Boston.
We created these charms, coaster design, and blue ribbon as a look tailored specifically to this charity. The only way to get your paws on one of these Wine, Women, and Shoes glasses is to purchase a VIP ticket to the fundraising event. Be sure to get your ticket soon; this is the first collectible wineglass design that VIP attendees can collect over five years.
This means that, if you love wine, you can’t lose. You can raise money to help children with medical expenses, you get a nice wineglass, and you have a nice night in Boston. The event includes wine tasting, a fantastic fashion show, and a gourmet gullet-pleasing dinner.
