I‘m a professional pet sitter and would like to offer a pet goods drive in my area. How do I start?
Start early! All kidding aside, early planning is the key to a successful fundraiser. First determine the name of the local shelter/pet related charity you wish to support. Talk to them, ask permission to offer a food drive on their behalf and ask what they need the most. Promote the shelter’s name in all your advertising as well as the drop off sponsor sites. Visit the Yahoo E-group wishbonesforpets for additional support.Can I offer a fundraiser at other times of the year and call it “Wishbones for Pets?”Thanksgiving is associated with counting our blessings and the spirit of giving. We most likely will get more recognition from the media if pet sitters were unified and held it around the Thanksgiving season.
