2013 WWF Donation Information

If anyone was wondering about our World Wildlife Fund donation for 2013, it has been delayed till next year. Why? The reason is rather simple: Our sales were so poor last year that we still haven’t cleared the $100 minimum required to receive a check from Zazzle 🙁 . Just like 2011/2012, we’ll be doing a combined total for 2013/2014 in early 2015 (need to give 30 days for final December sales to clear, so late January/early February).

Our projected 2013 donation is $22.86, give or take the small price difference caused by them not converting foreign currency to dollars until they send us a check. At 29, we actually beat our record for total number of Paper Animal sales by five (our 2011 total was 24), but Zazzle lowering our margins by half (30% to 15%) and the product mix containing a higher percentage of low cost items resulted in a lower total income and a donation $10 less than the previous year.

I haven’t done the math, but if anyone was wondering, the Paper Sloth and Paper Duck-Billed Platypus seem to be our two best sellers, lol. I doubt it’ll be our break-out year, as I’m pretty sure that won’t happen until Nightmare on Chicken Street is released, but I’m optimistic that 2014 will be a better year for us. I had Bobby take a small break from the game since I haven’t been able to work on it, so we should have a new set of designs/products ready sometime soon.
