Very cool. I wish there was more I could do besides spread the word. I hope you are getting a least a little something, after all you do need to replace supplies to make new plushies too.

We're currently awaiting payment on an order.

Most of my work for Minions for Munchkins is custom or memorial orders, all of our scrap fleece is donated to rescues and the local humane society, where they use it to make cat/small animal toys. I have enough fleece in stock for most orders, but I kind of get stuck when someone orders a color that I don't have, unless they pay up front (which is somewhat rare). >_<

Well, I would rather you didn't start on mine until I pay for it. I may have to wait a little while to get it afterwards, but will make it easier for me.

You guys are so wonderful!! Makes me cry! Such wonderful supportive people that I have the pleasure of calling my friends!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

I think its worth saying that you also offer other types of animals. Maybe you could give the option to add on a dollar or two on each order to go to the rescue? I know I would not have minded paying $30 instead of $28. Btw, I love the new dragon plush you posted on the other thread.

I got my plush of my female, Okami, who passed away in February and I LOVE her! Decent sized, not huge but not tiny, very soft, nicely made and stuffed so she is nice and firm.

My plush of Okami included some fin damage she had from shipping that never had the chance to heal so they are definitely customizable and one-of-a-kind! I recommend to anyone who has a few extra dollars to spare :)

I'm somewhat reserved about offering all different species I'm currently doing. A) I have to make enough to buy materials and support my own rescues, B) different plushes are different prices.

That's why I'm severely limited on how many of these I am able to do. I don't want to offer plushes of the fish currently in the rescue and have to keep half of the purchase price. >_<

Here's the memorial/donation plush for MoonShadow's rescue. I made Snapdragon, I actually started this the day that she'd rescued him, and it kind of sat here, half finished for a few days after he passed away. I have him priced at $30 (all Minions in need plushes are extra).

Here's how this will work. You send the donation directly to MoonShadow, and once she lets me know the payment has been received, I'll ship your plush to you.
