Buy a Christmas Gift and Help a Stray Dog!

Ornamente de lemn 4 Ron bucata/// EN: Wooden Christmas ornaments 0.9 euro each

Ce ziceti de niste cadouri de Craciun care, pe langa ca sunt hand-made, nu costa mult si sunt superdragute, ajuta un caine fara stapan?

Cea care le face este prietena mea Cristina (careia i s-au alaturat recent alte doua persoane). Ca multi dintre noi, Cristina iubeste animalele, dar, spre deosebire de multi dintre noi, nu se opreste la a hrani un caine sau o pisica care s-au aciuat pe langa scara blocului.
De ceva timp ea este unul dintre voluntarii asociatiei pentru protectia animalelor A Doua Sansa (http://www.adouasansa.com/); asta inseamna nu numai ca participa la actiunile asociatiei (inclusiv dezapezirea Adapostului pentru caini de la Glina!), ci si ca profitul pe care il obtine in urma vanzarii obiectelor de decor pe care le face merge tot aici. Wow, nu?

Iata o mica selectie din colectia de Craciun. Pe pagina de Facebook a Cristinei, Handmade Boutique Buy&Donate by Cristina Ion (aici), puteti vedea cam tot ce a facut ea pana acum.

EN: How about buying some Christmas gifts that are not only hand-made, totally inexpensive and supercute, but also help stray dogs in Romania?

The one who makes them is my friend, Cristina (who has been recently joined by two other artists/ dog lovers). Like many of us, Cristina loves animals, but unlike most of us, she does more than just feed the occasional dog or cat that happens to wander around the block.

For a while now she has been a volunteer with animal protection association A Doua Sansa (Second Chance) (http://www.adouasansa.com/); this means that not only does she take a very active part in the association’s activities (such as snow removal at Glina dog shelter, which, let me tell you, is not easy work!), she also donates to the association the profit from selling the decorations she makes. What a wonderful person, right? I’m proud to be her friend!

Here’s a small selection from the Christmas collection; you can see a lot more of her lovely things on her Facebook page, Handmade Boutique Buy&Donate by Cristina Ion (here), and that’s where you can order as well.

Since I’m also writing in English, it means that Cristina does deliver internationally, but you will probably have to cover the delivery cost yourself (delivery from Romania to a country in Europe should be grossly around 13 EUR for a small package).

Cumparaturi placute, de data asta nu e cazul sa aveti mustrari de constiinta, e pentru o cauza buna :)!
