Loafdom for the Turtle was established with a goal of raising funds to benefit The Painted Turtle, and operates with their full support. The profits from every wristband and all items purchased from our Direct store we send to The Painted Turtle at the end of each month. 100% of all commissions from items in our CafePress shop are paid directly by CafePress to The Painted Turtle as the only named beneficiary.
What Is The Painted Turtle?
An innovative year-round camp with a simple, yet challenging and inspiring vision; to provide a life-changing environment which enables seriously ill children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses to reach beyond their own and others’ expectations.Their work is truly extraordinary, as are the achievements of the children who attend.
This was the charity Meat Loaf took to his heart when he agreed to appear in Celebrity Apprentice USA 2011. We are a group of Meat Loaf fans who want to continue to raise money for this remarkable work. Meat has so many fans around the world who we believe will want to show their support, and spread the word to others.
