Feeling Philanthropic?

One day, a lightbulb went off in my head!


I work for a non-profit with a wonderful cause, and every year, there is a fundraiser to benefit our mission - which is to research cures for and eradicate a disease (I am being vague for any online psycho stalkers).  I am soliciting donations for our silent auction, and I recently received a large donation of doggie clothes and accessories from The Doggie Couture Shop.  Perhaps with all of the folks in Blogville who are authors of books, who make collars, who create doggie portraits, who work in food and treat companies, who provide a doggie service  - - perhaps if folks donated an item or two, I would I have a nice package for doggie owners for my silent auction.  It's a great way to get your name out there as I list all donors on the organization's website and in the journal for our fundraiser.  What do you think?

If you are one of these folks, and would like to donate an item, you can email me at marianne(dot)d(dot)howard(at)gmail(dot)com and I can tell you more about our organization and we can talk about your possible donation.

Thank you!  Normal Finn mischief resumes next time.  Promise!

  3. Hey Finn!
    Wow, what a great idea! Blogville is a very creative, talented and generous place, so I'm hoping you get a huge response for your Mom's group. I'll add this to the BC Calendar too.

  5. It's a great cause that's for sure!! I would love to donate something if I had any talent to make anything, but unfortunately, I don't and I only have Golden related items which is too specific for what you're hoping for...But let me look through my cache and if I have something, I'll let you know.

    Enjoy your Thursday!!
