I am hoping you can lend some suggestions for fundraising ideas.
We desperately need funds to continue to run the daily operations, as well as to care for the kitties that need extra medical attention.
How we cover this now is by requesting an $80 donation for kittens and $60 for cats. It just hasn't been making ends meet, sadly.
I was going to type up a story of a kitty that I personally knew and loved - Prudence. Her story is a sad one that explains the extra expenses that a rescue such as ourselves run into, but I thought it'd be best to keep this blog upbeat!
Blistered Whiskers ends up funding a lot of unforseen and unfortunate events, such as surgeries, extra medical attention, lab tests...not to mention the everyday operational stuff...litter, food, shots, spaying/neutering.
We have been toying with various fundraising ideas, such as:
- Garage Sale
- Monthly Pancake Breakfast
- Gift Wrapping (at Best Buy and Borders)
- Bake Sale
I am sure that there are some Blistered Whiskers supporters out there that have a background in fundraising and/or just have some great ideas. So please, if you do, don't hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to give us suggestions!
I'll leave you with a picture of Prudence, the perfect little kitty that won her forever home in a lot of people's hearts.
