Can you imagine spending night after night sleeping on a slab of concrete or a piece of cardboard?
How about it rain, sweltering heat, or piles of snow?
Well, that’s how many Rochester area animals live day to day.
Are you ready to help raise awareness of this unfortunate epidemic??
WE KNOW YOU ARE!! Join us for the...
1st Annual PAWSome Winter Challenge
Friday, January 25, 2013
Camp Eastman-Rotary Lodge Area
TO JOIN: Click “Fundraise or this Event” or scroll to the bottom and click “Join the Team.” There is no registration fee, we just kindly ask that you reach out to family and friends as possible sponsors and help to spread the word of our organization.
FUNDRAISING GOAL: $100
*All proceeds will go to PAWS Inc.
FUNDRAISING HINTS: Set an hourly goal and find friends and family to sponsor you $5 for every hour that you sit outside on cardboard.
INFO from Crowdrise: If you're an individual participating in an Event, once you join the Event by clicking on the FUNDRAISE FOR THIS EVENT button, you'll get your own fundraising page to share with everyone you know. Make your fundraising page compelling with photos/video/text and then bother your friends and enemies at least 2 times and ask them to donate. Be relentless. It's for a good cause.
GIFT BAG: For challengers who meet, or exceed (oh yeah!), the $100 goal, you will be given an "I survived the PAWSome Winter Challenge" drawstring bag filled with a PAWS blanket, flashlight, and more!
THE COMMUNITY IS INVITED TO STOP BY TO SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
Thanks to Half Moon Creative Salads, Holy Cow Cookies, Bagels Etc. and Two Ton Tony's for providing food and drinks to challengers! We couldn't do it without your help!
*An “All Ages” Celebration will immediately follow the event inside the Rotary Lodge.
*An Adult “Midnight Celebration” will take place from 11:30pm-2am at
O'Callaghan's Pub .
So, I know PAWS Inc is great, but what exactly
AM I SIGNING UP TO DO??
*Your CHALLENGE is to spend a cold, Rochester, winter night, outside (for as long as you can), just like the city pups and kitties of many Rochester homes.
*Wear your warmest outdoor clothing and bring a piece of cardboard. Grab some friends to join your team for entertainment. Other than that, you will have nothing-just like many neglected city animals. (*If you need cardboard, stop by The Landlord Outlet @ 31 Richmond St. Rochester, NY. Be sure to fancy it up to represent why you are doing this crazy January event!)
Stand up for these animals who can’t help themselves.Together, let’s raise awareness to help set these animals and their owners on the path to providing adequate shelter, food and medication that will keep these loving animals healthy for years to come!
