“Art For A Cause” is a nonprofit fundraiser that we started in 2020 when we decided to start selling art & merchandise as part of our business. We spent a year prior researching different printing businesses to find ones that fit both our ethical and sustainability needs but still felt that there was more that we could do to offset the environmental costs of making and shipping our products.
So we came up with this fun event as a way to celebrate and promote the different environmentally focused nonprofits you all follow and have the EcoElsa Community pick a top winner to receive 10% of our merchandise sales profit for that year as a donation to further support the winning nonprofit!

Now is where the fun begins! Over the next month until November 29th we will be posting on our Facebook and Instagram accounts for EcoElsa and EcoElsa Art opportunities for each nonprofit to receive votes. Then on November 30th, Giving Tuesday, the winning nonprofit will be announced as well as the amount so far being donated to them. Sales from November 30th through December 31st of 2021 will also go toward their cause and be donated on January 1st!
How they get votes for your favorite nonprofit is by tagging a friend to the posts specifically for that nonprofit or on posts for all 5 nonprofits leaving in the comments the name of the nonprofit you would like to vote for! Each nonprofit will get an equal number of posts as the other 4 and it is up to you and your friends to help your nonprofit choice win! You may only tag 5 people per a post so you will only get 5 votes per a post. We will then count up the number of tagged friends and comments and the nonprofit with the most wins!
If you would like to have your holiday gift purchases go toward our Art For A Cause Fundraiser this year make sure to check out the EcoElsa Shop, EcoElsa Etsy, and EcoElsa Redbubble! 10% of sales from all these stores every year goes to an environmentally focused nonprofit chosen through this fundraiser to offset the environmental costs of making and shipping our products.
Lastly like we said the reason we chose all these production partners is because they all focus on creating quality products in a sustainable and ethical way and we hope to add to this positive impact by giving back a little as well! For those who have already been purchasing our art thanks for helping support our business and mission of getting more people outdoors and helping the environment! You all rock for helping make this possible! As well as a big congrats to our final five nonprofits thank you for the good work you do and good luck on being our 2021 Nonprofit Winner!
