We're proud to say we're partnering with Palomacy, a pigeon and dove rescue group! Learn more about how you can adopt an unreleasable bird and give them a loving home by visiting http://www.pigeonrescue.org/
Poe Egglesworth is a hardworking postmaster who loves brightening everyone's day with cheerful letters! You'll never receive any rude post or utility bills from this charming little bird :> He always carries a stash of french fries in his delivery bag for easy snacking on long journeys
Poe is a tribute to an ill baby pigeon that I raised several years ago. He grew up to be a strong and healthy boy and is now living in a gigantic aviary with over 40 pigeons, and even got paired up with a lady bird :> I'm so happy that he can live his life in safety but I do miss him very much. I've always been fond of pigeons and while deciding a name for this character it just felt right to give him the same name of that sweet baby bird that I raised! More importantly it allows me to make the pun of "Poe-st Office."
Original Poe measures 10" long and 8" tall (25x20cm). He's made of soft minky fabric and his hat is made with velvet. His letter and delivery bag are stitched securely in place. Details are embroidered :>
Big Poe is made out of the same materials as Original Poe and is 16" long and 12" tall (40x30cm)!! However, his letter and bag are functional and bag is lined with polkadot fabric! The letter attaches under the beak by magnet and can be stored into his delivery bag. Write a note to a loved one, plop it in the envelope, and "deliver" Poe to your recipient! :> Big Poe comes bearing gifts! A small gift set (mini stickers, a pinback badge, and a magnet) will be included inside of all Big Poe letters, and can also be purchased separately as an add-on.
These are at a discounted price just for this campaign! Simply choose a pledge tier and increase your pledge by the amount listed and at the end of the campaign I'll be sending everyone a survey and you can let me know there which add-ons you want. Feel free to contact me if you have any issues!
