Visit my Etsy store HERE for more details on the cards. They will also be available in local bricks and mortar stores I've consigned my merchandise at, within the next few days.
As mentioned, the ACRES aims to create a caring and socially responsible society where animals are treated as sentient beings and where the environment is preserved for future generations. They will be holding a flea market cum Christmas party (open to public) at Loof on 5th December 2009. I've contributed 32 greeting cards for this event. All proceeds will go to the Wildlife Protection Programme. If you are in Singapore on that day, I hope to see you there.
You may ask, ''Why help animals''?
''Like us, animals have biological needs and experience pain, stress and discomfort. Many are intelligent and feel complex emotions like joy, happiness, depression and distress. Studies show that they have family bonds and feel true compassion for each other. But what they can't do is speak for themselves. So humans feel justified in treating them as mere objects.
By pretending that animals don't suffer, that they can't feel pain, that they have no real need or desire for freedom, it is easier for people to use them purely as commodities and ignore their suffering. So every year billions of them are captured, imprisoned, neglected, abused and slaughtered for human ends. They are used for everything from entertainment and sports to consumer product testing and food. If animals don't have a say in their treatment, then it is up to all caring human beings to give them a voice, speak up on their behalf and end their abuse.'' -ACRES
