JHS Thanks Us. And we feel great about it!

So, here's a very sweet Thank You note from my contact at the Jacksonville Humane Society, Brittany Burnes.  As most of you probably already know Nick and I threw this artsy party/sale gig in our home recently and called it Sales for Tails.  Most participating artists donated 10% of their sales to the Jacksonville Humane Society.  Together we all pulled together and raised and donated $1,589.28 to the cause.  We like to think that this will buy a lot of cat and dog food or whatever else JHS needs to keep those animals safe and sound until their future families come to find them.  We LOVE supporting the Jacksonville Humane Society and all of our fabulously creative friends!!  If you didn't get a chance to come this time, hopefully you can join us next time.
