Your purchase makes a BIG difference
Fibre Arts Bootcamp is the fundraising arm for Llamas in the Raw Sanctuary, an organization dedicated to the rescue, re-homing and rehabilitation of llamas and alpacas in need. You’re right, it does seem like a pretty bizarre concept, but there are lots of llamas and alpacas around and for many reasons, whether through family break-ups, home repossessions or illness too many of these beautiful animals find themselves homeless. Sometimes they are left in a field without food or water, other times they are set free into the forest to care for themselves and end up being killed by Conservation officers. Some people just don’t know what to do with a pet llama that has been left behind following a bereavement in the family. The Llama Sanctuary is here to help.
Right now these llamas have need of another barn for this winter. The sick, injured and elderly animals all require special feeding arrangements and that requires space. One llama especially, has fallen into the spotlight following her speedy recovery from a stroke that left her partially paralyzed.
Every purchase from our store provides a few more dollars towards the $10,000 needed for the barn. We’ve already begun the foundations and we place our trust in this Great Universe to provide the structure. If you’ve been contemplating rug weaving or getting more creative with some really big crochet hooks or knitting needles, or perhaps feel like making a gift to someone else who does, then please jump over to the online store right now and give a boost to Snowy’s Barn Appeal.
If nothing takes your fancy, then donations will be rewarded with a thousand llama kisses ….and that’s not as bad as it sounds!
