It’s no secret that I am so in love with animals. If Osa didn’t have anxiety, I’d probably be fostering a few sweet babies at all times. Beca and I connected over social media because of our mutual love towards furry [and non furry] cutie-pies. I had also purchased a few pairs of Tumbleweeds Handcraft sunglasses and knew that she and Doug are great people with great products!
I emailed Beca with an idea of some kind of animal themed sunglasses. I was thinking paws [cat/dog], or a little bone. There were all kinds of butterflies in my tummy because I wasn’t sure if I had crossed some e-friendship line, or maybe she was too busy, or it was a dumb idea. Nobody likes rejection and I was so nervous! Her response contained so much excitement and enthusiasm about the idea that I probably smiled all day! Maybe even all week. I couldn’t shut up about it! I took a plunge and Beca was super supportive! Not only had she and Doug agreed to make the PAWS for a Cause sunglasses, they are also donating 10% of the proceeds to the animal rescue I support monthly in Houston, as well as another 10% to their local animal rescue, PAWS, in Steinhatchee, Florida.

Beca and Doug’s generosity and kindness has inspired me to make my own donation to their local animal rescue. Whether you have your own four-legged family members or not, I hope that you consider donating every once in a while. It’s painful to think about how many sweet animals are suffering with no voice to express it or seek help.
