As some of you may know, we have an online exclusive scent that you can't find in any of our retailers. If you haven't checked out our Warm Cotton candle you definitely should— it's one of our favourite scents, and we donate 15% of sales each month to a different organization that is close to our heart.
Now that we have this fun blog feature on our new site, we want to start talking about the organization we are choosing for the month, including why we chose them and what they do!
ElderDog Canada is an amazing organization that is dedicated to helping aging dogs and aging people. ElderDog assists older folks in caring for their dogs including providing dog walking services, assistance with obtaining food and feeding, assistance with animal hygiene, transportation to vet appointments, among countless other activities. ElderDog also acts as a dog rescue by providing foster homes for dogs while helping to adopt out the dogs into approved homes, and with long term care for senior dogs that are re-homed through their organization. Jess is a foster with ElderDog which is one of the reasons we decided to choose them for both October and November.
ElderDog is doing an auction on November 27th (the day this blog was posted) to help raise money for the amazing work that they do and we have donated a few candles to the auction as well. Check out the auction and see if you can knock a few items off your Christmas list while helping out a great cause in the process!
Another way you can help out ElderDog is by making a donation directly through their website, or you can become a volunteer with them! They are always in need of new volunteers and there are many different ways you can help out including dog walking, fostering, dog care support for seniors, and more.
You can find tons more information about ElderDog and ways you help out at their website. Here are some photos of Jess' last foster dog for cuteness purposes, of course:
