Many of you enjoyed and supported our Vintage Sales, however due to the Covid-19 pandemic, these sales along with any other live fundraising events have unfortunately been put on pause for the time being.
So we’ve decided to re-invent ourselves! Along with the help from bright young Michaelis Graduate, Paris Brummer, we are using this opportunity to grow and maintain a stronger online and social media presence in light of these contact-less times. Paris is a bit of a social media fundi and recently ran a very successful charity auction on instagram.
In these stressful and uncertain times, we know that disposable income for niceties is often secondary to needs but we acknowledge that many of you still want to support the work we do.
So here’s our big plan…. we are looking for donations of products and services that many of our supports will be buying anyway. The big difference is of course that they’ll be making their usual purchases AND raising funds for our Rescue Animals.
Examples of things we thought would be of appeal; pet friendly self catering accommodation, dog or horse products, pet portraits, a meal voucher at a pet friendly restaurant. If you have a brand that is somehow animal related or if you simply want to pitch in with something fun for us to auction, we’d love to hear from you.
Part of the success of the auction is based on the hype that is created when each donor shares and posts stories when their item comes up for auction. It’s a win win for everyone!
To RSVP and help us by taking part in this exciting initiative, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us about yourself. Deadline for submissions is Friday 5 November. Thank you!
