And no, I don’t actually mean one of the cool things we have in the store right now.
A few days ago Greg Tripi our “That’s So Potted…Terrarium” Grand Prize Winner contacted me. He was excited he had won the contest but also felt, especially at this time of year, that perhaps the gift could be used for more than just expanding his already full collection of succulents. And so he decided to generously give his $500 gift certificate to the Sante D’Or Foundation, a no-kill animal rescue, which we will provide as something they can raffle off to raise hopefully more than $500! The shelter saves animals that are in immediate danger of being euthanized and helps to find them permanent, loving homes. So far they have saved over 1400 animals in the Los Feliz/Silver Lake/Atwater area!
So thank you, Greg. You drove all your friends crazy to vote for you and then you gave it all away. We’d be your friend any day.
And by the way, even if don’t have $500 to donate, Santa D’Or is doing a fundraiser on December 15th at The Vista Theatre where they will be showing Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas and all proceeds will benefit Santa D’Or. So go! (all details are on their home page)
