Do you need a pick-me-up after this long and stressful week? Something positive to think about and a reason to make you smile? If so, I would like to introduce you to a great new Facebook Group called Feline Fairies! The idea for this group came to Weirdo Admin Hannah Schramm after seeing what a good time some of our other team members were having participating in surprise-gifting groups like D.A.M. Hannah thought to herself-this is fun, but, what if there was a group like this that was centered specifically around our love for our pets? And what if we could reach more people and go outside of just the surrounding Cleveland area? And from there, Feline Fairies was born!
Hannah hit the ground running in creating the Facebook Group, making the awesome banner graphic, and writing up the details of how the group would operate. She then kindly invited myself (Cassandra Bean Ungvarsky) and Mandi Stevens to help her keep an eye on the page and help our members have a great time participating! (Truthfully, aside from answering questions from our members about how to create and share their wishlists, this page doesn’t even need any moderating! It is filled with 100% positivity and love and good intent and it is a wonderful thing to see- especially in our current climate.) Hannah, Mandi, and myself played around with the group settings, collaborated in writing up the description of the group, and Hannah did a few trial runs with using and sharing an Amazon wishlist. Once we felt pretty confident that the page could run fairly smoothly we started inviting friends to join! And boy did they join!! Our group numbers doubled nearly every day for the first few days! We are now at a steady increase daily and we currently have 804 members- after just ONE WEEK! We are thrilled.
In a nutshell, the concept of the group is to surprise members by buying them items off of their Amazon Wishlists. It’s like a secret-santa type of game. Since we are centered on our love of pets, the Wishlists should only include items for our pets (toys, treats, food, accessories) or fun items for ourselves that show off our love for our pets (animal themed home décor, clothing, or accessories). Although the group name is Feline Fairies we do encourage parents of ALL pets to join our group. From hamsters to horses we want you to join!! The joy it has been bringing our members in receiving items they have put off buying for themselves or their pet is truly heart warming. It is such a great feeling to know that someone was thinking of you and wanted to bring a smile to your face! Members can sign their name to their gift or they can send anonymously. Mandi has also recently posted to try to organize Wishlists a little bit- we noticed that we have MANY members who work at or run a rescue, or foster animals, or who take care of feral colonies and may need a little extra amount of food or other resources.
On behalf of the Feline Fairies, I want to extend to you an invitation to join our group. I promise you won’t be sorry you did! We can’t wait to see you there and to spoil you and your fur babies! You deserve it! Click on this link to join! https://www.facebook.com/groups/2641283412827280/
