Animal Acres, Earthlings, and Tipjoy. Oh my.

Our tipjoy account is officially up and running. If you want to up your awesome quotient, all you need to do is donate here**.

Where will my money go, you ask? It will help us cover the costs for having this bake sale, sure, but mostly it will be going to two lovely organizations: Animal Acres and Earthlings. The following is information from volunteers who work with the organizations and also from the websites.

Almost all of the contributions/donations goes towards the following:
1 - University Screening Program - Designed to bring the Earthlings message to University Students around the world the Nation Earth University Program encourages screening of Earthlings on university campuses with no charge to the attendees.
2 - Translating the film into new languages - with an emphasis on Asian languages. As of now we have been able to translate the film into 9 languages including Spanish, French, Italian, German, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic and Hindi. Their goal of 8 new languages includes Japanese, Chinese and Korean who represent the major Asian languages.
3 - Free Broadcast of the film on Public Television around the world to reach as many people as possible.

Animal Acres (Information from their website):
Animal Acres is home to over 150 rescued farmed animals, thanks to generous and loving people who provide feed, straw-filled barns, and veterinary care through our monthly sponsorship program.
Animal Acres is often a suffering farmed animals' only hope for rescue and refuge. Your donation will provide emergency aid for animals seized from cruelty by humane officers and Animal Acres investigators. Donations are urgently needed for rehabilitation and housing costs, veterinary treatments and medical supplies, and emergency transport expenses.
Over 90% of the annual funding needed for our rescue, education, and advocacy efforts is provided by Animal Acres members. YOU are the most important part of making the Los Angeles farmed animal sanctuary and compassionate living center possible.
Your support will provide us the guaranteed funding we need - when we need it most - 24/7. There are many times when suffering farmed animals need us to respond IMMEDIATELY - and when they do - we need to have funds in place to quickly respond to rescue them from harm.

** Please fill up your Tipjoy account with money before donating. We don't get anything if you don't. Thanks!

Ah, planning

We are busy planning away and figuring out venues. Oh, and worried about the evil heat that we shall be faced with come June. You've got to love Southern California, hm?

Hopefully we will be able to update this more frequently in the next couple of weeks. Until then, I leave you with cake! We expect to see lots of cakes at the bake sale, people.
