Games Month 2018
Sit With Me Rescue
Games Month is back again for the third year!
What is Games Month?
It involves friends, family, food, and lots of fun! But it also involves creating some awareness and raising some much needed funds for the dogs in the rescue. You choose some fun games, prepare some food, and invite family and friends over for a games night and you then ask them to make a donation to Sit With Me to help out the pooches! Pretty simple, right? The funds raised are donated to the rescue and you know that your efforts are helping to save lives. You can host one, two, or as many games nights as you would like! Having fun + raising funds = saving lives. It is perfect! And the best news of all? You can do this from anywhere in the world! Plus, we have prizes!
Why should you join in?
We are not going to lie. 2018 has been hard. So many dogs in need and our numbers remain at over 120 dogs in care on a regular basis. This means our volunteers are working extra hard on getting urgent pups to safety, caring for these pups, while also fundraising to help with vet costs. This is why we need Games Month to help us help the dogs!
Games Month encourages you to get social, try some fun snack recipes, pull out your favourite game, and start spreading smiles and laughter. We don't know about you, but rescue is rough at times, and we all need more reasons to smile.
On top of that, we have awesome prizes to share with you if you reach certain fundraising goals!
How do you join in?
You are already on our CanadaHelps page, so now you can create your own fundraising page by joining as an individual. You can use this page and request online donations through it or you can just use the page to share why you have decided to join and raise funds for Sit With Me. Maybe you have a story of your own to tell about your dog or a dog that meant the world to you. This would be the place to tell that story. If you need some extra incentive for your party guests to donate, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request a story of one of our dogs from the past year. We want to raise fun and funds, but some awareness never hurt!
If you decide to collect funds at the party, you can always send the funds in later through email transfer or paypal to email@example.com.
**Please note that if you host a party, your guests can donate online through your CanadaHelps page to receive a tax receipt (if the donation is $20 or over). Only the person who donated is eligible for a tax receipt; therefore, if you collect the funds from your friends, please submit your collected funds by email transfer or paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know it was for games month so we can add to your total!
For each tier you reach, that prize is given to you, so you just keep on collecting!
