Thank You For Having a Heart For Animals

These very special Valentines were created for local businesses and services that care deeply about animals and about contributing toward a more compassionate world. The hearts each carry a hand-crafted gift card with a monkey’s picture enclosed and a tiny but sincere message to say “Thank you for opening your heart!”

If you know of an ethical, purely vegan business or service that we missed (and glad to know there are many more out there!) please let us hear about it and we will put them on the Easter Bunny’s list.

An extra note of thanks to fine artist Gayle Koyanagi for her beautiful design and guidance, and to Beth, Lori, Carmina Gooch, Patricia Klobchar,Leslie, Jamey for coming together to create these unique gifts.
