As all pet owners know, the bond between human and pet is incredibly special. The companionship provided by pets is a unique bond. And when you adopt a pet from a local animal shelter you’re saving a life. The work done by animal shelters is incredibly important and needs both support and recognition. That’s why we’re building a collection of designs that demonstrate the powerful bond between people and their pets.
Each design should depict both a human and an animal and speak to the special nature of the relationship. The collection will stand alongside the spoken and written stories collected by SF SPCA’s Companion Chronicles project and will be exhibited throughout the Bay Area in 2018.
Creative Action Network is a marketplace for social impact design work covering a range of progressive issues. All designs that meet the requirements listed below will be published as prints and select designs will be made into apparel and other home goods. You will receive 40% of all profits and 10% will be donated to our non-profit cause partners.
Proceeds from this campaign support San Francisco SPCA and their efforts in saving, protecting, caring, and advocating for animals. They are a nationally-recognized leader in animal welfare, with a history of innovation in animal care, animal rights, and proactive prevention programs. For their 150th birthday they’re launching Companion Chronicles, a project that will provide animal lovers with the opportunity to record and share their stories about the animals that have transformed them by bringing merriment, miracles, magic and meaning to their lives.
Our Green New Deal campaign premiered on March 14, 2019 in Washington D.C., at Bold V. Old, a daylong convening where speakers including Stacey Abrams, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris discussed bold ideas for our biggest problems, including the Green New Deal. On March 16 In Oakland, CA, Creative Action Network joined artists and activists at the Green New Deal Create-A-Thon, where youth artists from the Sunrise Movement and others worked on new designs for the collection. Youth activist Rio says that after seeing videos of Greta Thunberg leading student climate strikes in Europe, “me and my sister were empowered to make some sort of difference.” Rio and his sister Maddy recently rose to internet stardom when their student group confronted Senator Feinstein about the Green New Deal a few weeks ago. Maddy says she is now “trying to make my voice be more heard, go to marches, and more creative stuff, definitely!”
