Review of 2017


2017 was quite a year for us. So many accomplishments, start ups, and partnerships have helped us make this website, brand, and community stronger. I did my best to bring content and information to you all and I’m learning more and more as I go. Below you can see our gain of followers from 2016 to 2017. In 2018, I hope to improve these more for all platforms:

I also opened up an Etsy shop in 2017. I learned alot in the first year of business and know how to improve in 2018. I donated a portion of our sales and money raised at fundraiser events to 7 local animal shelters that I personally work with, along with other shelters that I participated in for their events.

In 2016, I raised $645.31 from fundraising events I held.

In 2017, I raised $2,121.81 from portion of sales and fundraising events I held.

In 2018, I hope to raise $3,000 for local animal shelters.
