Shop for a ‘Paws': Barkarama’s Online Stella & Dot Charity Trunk Show

Charity_Trunk_Show.jpg 

At the beginning of 2014, I shared a personal goal of wanting to do at least two lots of fundraising this year to benefit my favourite kind of furry friend, as well as those, who need a dog to assist them though their daily lives. I already had one idea in mind at the time of posting, inspired by one of my business sidelines – working as an independent stylist for boutique accessories brand Stella & Dot – but I’ve been waiting for the right time to get it off the ground. 

April 1 saw the start of National Pet Month (ends May 5), an annual event promoting responsible pet ownership, helping pet charities across the UK to raise funds and recognising the love and companionship our pets provide. To celebrate, Basil and I are inviting you to shop our online Stella & Dot Charity Trunk Show on Wednesday 30 April, and in return I pledge to donate and equally share all of my earnings (25% of sales) between my chosen charities - Dogs Trust and Support Dogs.
