Ironwood Pig Sanctuary card

Yesterday my work pal Drea walked up to my desk and handed me an envelope.

No, there was no cash in it. (We work at a non-profit!)

It was a pig card that she bought at a shop in Phoenix, AZ called Blueberry Deluxe Boutique where she sells some of her handmade accessories.

The card inside read: “Hey Tex-I couldn’t resist thinking of you when I saw this :)”

Do I work with swell people or what?!

I love my new card. On the back is a cute little pig drawing with the words “Ironwood Pig Santuary” so of course, I had to investigate, and boy am I glad I did!

Thanks to Drea’s good deed, I discovered Ironwood Pig Sanctuary, a wonderful place located in Arizona that “provides shelter and care for unwanted and abused pot bellied pigs.”

Their website is great, filled with helpful information about pot bellied pigs,plus what the non-profit organization does, volunteering and visiting opportunities and a whole lot more. The only thing I didn’t see was a place to purchase their cute cards online. Oh well, perhaps in the future.

If you want to learn more about this pig sanctuary, check out their video below. My favorite part is when co-founder Mary lays down the important law: “There is no such thing as a teacup pig.” You said it Mary!

I may be crossing the country later this summer. Who knows, perhaps I’ll stop by Ironwood for a visit. Thanks Drea for your random act of kindness, and Ironwood Pig Sanctuary co-founders Ben and Mary for all you do!

If you’d like to support Ironwood Pig Sanctuary, good for you! Just click here you awesome person!

  1. Hi! I’m the owner of Blueberry Deluxe and my friend from the pig sanctuary posted this link! I am SO EXCITED about your card and your love for the piggies! If you want to get in touch with them the best way is through Facebook on their page. My buddy Taryn runs most of that and she has some CUUUUUTE merchandise you can purchase for the cause as well as ideas on how to help the piggies (zinc, blankets, etc) šŸ˜‰
