Winnie's Wish Christmas Fundraiser!

Shopping season has officially begun! Time to decorate! Time to think charitably! Time to think of your critters too! Want to combine all of the above into one thing?

Then you are just in time for the


We’ve got ornaments! That double as cat toys! That you get for donations to a great cause!!

These ornaments are personalized with the names of your kitties. Or doggies. Or whatever or whoever you want. Red and green paneled balls are individually embroidered with metallic gold thread.



For a donation of $15 you get three ornaments. Additional ornaments are $3 each.

There are four panels on each ball. You can have separate names on each panel if you want. You can have one name per ball, either on one panel or two or even all of them. You can have two names on each ball. Honestly, you can design your set any way you want.

As an example, I have done Chrystal’s animal family. Chrystal has 19 animals. Each animal has their name on one panel, she needs 5 balls, and one space would be left over. On that final space, I put "Winnie’s Wish".

 side two



If you prefer not to have personalized ornaments, there is a limited selection of patterned paneled balls instead.
 Or mix and match!


Here’s how it works!

Decide on how many balls you want and what you want on each of them.

Make your donation by using the red "Winnie’s Wish Donation" button on my side bar.

This is an important step!!! Email me at anniclan AT aol DOT com with your names/options.
AND your mailing address!

Use this template to plan your ornaments. Fill in names or choose fabric pattern. (snowman, red snowflakes, gold snowflakes, green candy canes. solid red, green and white also available.)

Please understand that these will not be sent out the next day as the first fundraiser was. It will take time to create the personalization pattern to load into my machine, so please allow a few days for the work.

Mail in the continental US will then take 3 days to a week.

These are available anywhere in the world, for additional postage. It’s about three dollars extra to most places 
EDIT: Current postal rates are higher than at the original time of this FUNdraiser, please email first before placing out of country orders.
I have no control over how long it will take these to arrive out of country, but I can tell you that in the previous fundraiser it took up to three weeks to some places. (guaranteed 3 days to a week cost a minimum of an additional $17, yikes!)


Every dollar above postage and a very tiny materials amount goes to Winnie’s Wish! That’s about $12 a basic set! Winnie’s Wish is dedicated to rescuing abandoned or feral kitties and finding them great homes where they can be loved for the rest of their lives! Please consider helping them by participating in this Christmas Fundraiser!

Oh, I almost forgot! There is no nip in these as I’m assuming they will hang on Christmas trees and we don’t want the kitties tearing down the tree to get at them! However, if your kitties are anything like my kitties, they still make a great toy to roll all around and attack after the tree gets put away! (I’ll be sharing pictures of my babies playing with my prototypes as I worked on creating these ornaments in the coming days!)

If you want these just for toys and want nip in them, let me know and I’ll add it at no extra charge!

Also, for you woofie lovers out there, we now have squeakers as an option if you want your doggies to play with them!

Don't forget, you can get people names too!


Don’t forget, if you want gifts for your kitties, the other FUN FUN FUNdraiser is still available too! You can get the set of five Winnie’s Wish toys, details HERE!

Please email for any questions! anniclan AT aol DOT com

What a wonderful idea!! I'll have to think on how I want the balls to look. Can you put in squeakers for doggies? My puggers would probably love those balls, too.
Much Luvums,

I love these! Especially the patterned ones. You know how I feel about nip. Have you thought about doing toys with Silvervine? Also maybe you can open a shop at the Nipclub Holiday Bazaar. You can email me and the info is also on the CB home page.
