Last Spring, Vancouver Fashion eZine set up shop at the Got Craft Spring show and donated 50% of their sales to support VOKRA - the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association. Not only did Marilyn exceed her sales expectations, she sold more magazines at the Spring show than at any event. Which proves my theory that crafters love their felines!

Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association is a no-kill, non-profit registered charity, formed in 2001 with the mandate of caring for very young, mainly bottle-feeding, kittens. They have gone from an average of 150 or so per year to over 1300 kittens and cats rescued in 2009 from homelessness or euthanasia. VOKRA is not a shelter. Instead, they provide over 100 individual foster homes throughout the lower mainland. VOKRA covers all of the costs for its fostering families and is 100% volunteer run with no paid staff or government funding, relying on private donations and grants.

We are pleased to say that Vancouver Fashion eZine will be back at the holiday show. Printed magazines will be on sale at the front door for $10.00 each. Half of this cost will go directly to VOKRA.

The Vancouver Fashion eZine promotes the best talent by featuring some of the most creative people (designers, photographers, make-up artists, stylists, models etc.) and their contributions to the local fashion scene in each issue of their magazine. Grab your very own copy on December 5th!

  1. I just made a donation to VORKA because, they are awesome and desperatly need funds right now to pay vet bills.

    Also - everyone should go to this site (daily) and vote for VORKA (or the BC SPCA Vancouver) to help them win a grant - it only takes 30 seconds:
