Less Cruelty More Cuddles.

"The Many Faces Of Bunny" eBay Charity Auction.

Why did we choose to donate to this charity?

I recieved a lovely email from a long term fan of Paper Panda, Laura. She works for the charity Cruelty Free International and asked me if I'd produce a tee shirt design as part of a campaign being launched in September. So I did!

All of the designs that I make that are printed on any form of merchadise are still scans of original papercuts, so these ones of our friend Bunny were used to create the tee shirt design that will be out for sale in a limited edition run along with other artists who are also taking part.

Rather than chuck them away as I often do *shame on me!* I thought they'd make a nice little study of the different faces of Bunny that a collector might pay a couple of quid for to go towards this fabulous charity.

So we have Busy Bunny, Sad Bunny, Shy Bunny, Playful Bunny & Friendly Bunny all floating over a nice blue background with the traditional 'Hand da Panda' font below each one with his respective name. It is framed in a handmade beech wood frame 31x18cm, signed on the mount and on the reverse of each Bunny and finished with the Paper Panda engraved logo.
This is a one off piece, no copies have been made, and it has raised a nice chunk of money for a fabulous charity! Hurrah!

Less cruelty, more cuddles!

100% of the final bid has been donated to Cruelty Free International, the first global non-profit to campaign to end animal tests for cosmetics worldwide.

This eBay auction raised £194.00 for Cruelty Free International *Applause*
