EFA is a team of about 500 people from all over the world, and most members donate a portion of their monthly sales to animal charities. The EFA team shop - much like the HOST shop - is stocked with items contributed by many artists and each month, the proceeds from the shop go EFA's chosen 'Charity of the Month'. Currently the team are in the process of trying to make EFA a not-for-profit organization.
EFA is celebrating its Etsy Birthday this month and to celebrate, team members are working together to get more exposure not only for member shops but for the EFA team shop and the team's worthwhile causes. The EFA Birthday Bash promotion runs from September 15-30 and our HOST member, artbysusmitha, will be participating along with over 120 other EFA member shops! Participating EFA members are offering a 20% discount in the form of a coupon that can be used in any participating shop. For a full list of member shops participating in this fantastic Birthday offer, just follow this link to the EFA website:
All you have to do to use the coupon is put "EFA Birthday Bash coupon code SUSMI" in the notes to seller for ANY participating shop and then either wait for a revised invoice or pay and get a refund. There will be different codes for every shop keeper so we can keep track of who brings the most people to the sale (the winner gets a special prize from EFA - $50 will be donated to their favorite charity, mine is the Visakha SPCA Cow Sanctuary http://visakhaspca.org/programs/cowsanctuary.php), so if I'm the first person you've heard about this from then use my code in any participating stores but if you got someone else's code first, then use theirs. Oh and feel free to pass my code on to anyone else you know who might enjoy this sale. Don't hesitate to contact me - http://www.etsy.com/convo_new.php?to_username=artbysusmitha - if you have any questions.
