It was suggested that, as part of our fundraising efforts, we should approach some local businesses, and ask if they would allow us to place donation canisters at their registers.
*shudder* This is so hard for me, but I put on my big-girl panties, and have approached two places so far. One said no (and they were really nice about it), but the other said 'probably'. I just have to go back on Tuesday to speak to the person in charge.
I let them know that I would be happy to place links to their businesses here on our blog, in return for their counter space. If you have a business, and would be willing to host a donation canister, or know someone who does, please leave a comment with your contact info, and I will be in touch. All comments are screened before posting, and I won't post private info.
In other news, I was very gratified to open Rachel's email, and find notifications of 4 more donations made to Rachel's PAWS account, totaling $140! Thanks so much. There is no amount that's too small; it all adds up, and we are grateful for your generosity.
