This year, the GOO team is getting together to raise money for Asan Dog Shelter in Korea! This is where we adopted two of our three dogs, Gimbap and Oliver. To raise funds, we are HANDSEWING mini stockings with customized names. Inside these lovely mini stockings, we will have HOMEMADE, (mostly) ORGANIC, ETHICAL and NATURAL treats for said human/dog/cat!
NOW, the reason behind all this craftery. Yes, craftery. As some of you may know, our three dogs are from Korea. Before travelling the 1000s of kms, they were living the shelter life on a secluded grassroots, locally-run, no-kill shelter up in the mountains of a rural village. During the winter season, it gets down to -30 degrees, easily, and as some of you can guess, many MANY animals don't make it through the cold rough months despite the efforts of all the volunteers. Our goal is to raise some funds and give back to where our furbabies came from. 100% of the proceeds from these mini stockings will be donated to the shelter so they can then go purchase warm blankets, self-heating pads, doghouses, etc. for these amazing animals.

Thank you for your support! We have maxed out on our production this year but we promise to start earlier in the future :) Have a great holiday season!
