Deano Designs Perth started in 2013 – and we’re about to turn TEN!!
From January 2023 we’ll be lending a hand to small pet rescues in Australia.
DEANO DONATION DOLLARS
From January 2023 – We’ll donate $1.00 from every online order received thru our website.
As I did not get many rescues nominating themselves for this, I have decided to change the way it will operate.
Each order that comes thru the website, I will donate $1.00 to rescue
Instead of nominating a rescue and sending money each month like some other small businesses do – I will place the funds into a kitty – to be donated when the need arises.
A record will be kept here on this page, as to how much money has been sent to rescues.
A dollar might not seem like much – but when it’s needed, it can make a big difference to a rescue that finds itself short on funds to get the job done.
PLEASE NOTE: This is money I am donating from my own pocket, I have not asked for donations from anyone.
We will also offer random fundraising items from time to time -a FLASH FUNDRAISER!!
products will randomly go up for sale and the WHOLE AMOUNT, yes 100% paid will go to a rescue!
These will be posted on our FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM PAGES first, and you’ll get a couple of days notice.
They’ll be popular readymade items!
Rescue is hard work, it can be financially and emotionally draining – so we’re giving back to the community of people who care for the furbabies that need help – to those that give so much of their own passion to make rescues work.
We are not the first small business that donates in a similar way – for many solo operators, it is a manageable way that we can offer to help.
Over the years, my handmade business has supplied products for raffles, fundraisers, quiz nights, and made cash donations when needed to help in a crisis to various rescue groups.
Everyone is feeling the pinch with inflation, covid is still causing drama, cost of materials has risen, grocery and food prices, vegetable prices, the rental crisis, and sadly as a result – the amount of pets being surrendered or dumped has skyrocketed!
So we hope you’ll hop onto the journey with us – and perhaps pop your hand up to buy a fundraising item from time to time, just to top the coffers up somewhere it is desperately needed.
You will be able to see where our donations (CASH OR PRODUCTS) have been sent, there will be a record here.
We will make a list here of all the ones that get nominated for our support.
