Καταφύγιο Ζώων της Θεσσαλονίκης. Φέτος περισσότερο από ποτέ πρέπει να δείξουμε ότι υπάρχει ανθρωπιά και καλοσύνη μέσα μας, για να πάρουμε όλοι δύναμη για τον καινούριο χρόνο που έρχεται :) Στηρίξτε μας να στηρίξουμε με τη σειρά μας περισσότερες ψυχές.
This Christmas we've decided to help a charity by creating keyrings. Instead of good luck charms and ornaments, we sell the keyrings, and all the profits will go towards the Animal Refuge in Thessaloniki. This year, most of every other one, we need to show that we care about other souls that suffer and help the people that are taking care of them to continue to support them.
Price: 14 euros (incl postal)
