This is a totally open thread, combined with these announcements, so please talk about whatever you want.
I think everyone knows by now that the 2023 Pet Calendars are a no go for this year.
Is everyone aware that you can get a .pdf file of all the calendar months with a $10 donation to Athenspets? If not, check out the post linked below for details.
We raised $605 for Athenspets from the announcement of the .pdf version of the calendar.
Balloon Juice pet postcards are available on Cafe Press – $8 for 8 postcards.
Cafe Press charges us $6 for 8 postcards, so we make $2 on each set of 8. We have earned $36 from that so far, so not what I would call a rousing response, but maybe they will catch on. We’ve added Thurston (!) and a few other new pets to the postcard page, so check that out if you are interested.
The folks who have ordered the postcards have told me that they are beautiful, and we are pleased to hear that!
Between the donations for the .pdf version and the $36 we have made from the postcards, we have raised about 1/4 of the $2,500 we normally raise through the calendars.
The amount that shows in the thermometer is the total amount we have raised for them since the beginning of time. It was at $5,126 when what would have been calendar season started. To state the obvious, money from Walter’s Fund that has gone toward emergency care for Athenspets animals is not reflected in the total.
We have helped save 2 dogs so far!
