Animal and Nature Photo Cards Set of 4 with Envelopes by LittleStudioJewels
It fits the theme of peaceful animals/nature, loving nature and animals, being grateful that they are in my life, and wanting to share that with the rest of the world (plus 10% of the sale goes to a worthy charity-of-the-month!). http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=150364782.
I have always felt more at ease with animals than people, and they have always seemed more at ease with me than other people also! For this reason, although I can't afford to keep millions of shelter animals (though I'd love to, trust me!), each month I donate 10% of my total sales before taxes and shipping to a different worthy charity, such as the World Wildlife Fund of Canada, Rescue 100 (for horses), Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary (for the wild paws), The Country Cat Sanctuary, etc., as much as possible.
I am also now learning to crochet tiny animals, called amigurumi, to make into cat toys that I can donate to a local cat sanctuary for their cats, and as a potential fundraiser for them to sell to visitors and new (cat) adoptive parents.
