The Boston Yeti who made his debut during the snowstorm that hit the city last winter is emerging to help out a local animal charity.
The unidentified prankster is selling Yeti swag to raise money for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
All of the proceeds from the sales of stickers, buttons and bookmarks will benefit the MSPCA’s Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston.
The Yeti told The Associated Press in an email: “I can think of no better way to spin ones popularity than for the benefit of animals in need.”
“From the beginning of this unprecedented winter, I’ve been determined to channel the positive energy that surrounds me toward an important and worthwhile cause,” the Yeti said.
The swag, illustrated with quirky line drawings of the Yeti by Rhode Island-based artist Jeff Smith, is being sold through an Etsy store appropriately dubbed Boston Yetsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/BostonYetsy.
MSPCA spokesman Rob Halpin says the animal welfare organization is grateful for the help.
