We're Willing To Help! Are You?


Hi friends,
You remember dat a couple of weeks ago M met with Lisa Peters at the http://www.bayareahumanesociety.com/ and learned lots of things she did not know.  

One of the things she learned was how our local  http://www.bayareahumanesociety.com/ shelter can actually help your local anipal charity with their fund raisers.  Dats right - we can help your charity and your charity can help ours.   It's easy too.  
The http://www.bayareahumanesociety.com/ periodically holds auctions as a means of raising money.   The Packer's organization and other groups often donate Green Bay Packer memorabilia to be auctioned off and lots of other cool stuff.   Now our city (and state) loves the Packer's Football Team.  Don't get me wrong.  But, the humans living in Green Bay get used to Packer items being up for auction because so many charities in our city have access to dem.  Lisa Peters mentioned to M dat they really appreciate all the Packer memorabilia that they receive, but they need something new now and then for the public to get excited about.

Lisa also mentioned that art work really isn't a big hit in our community, but it is in a Florida community that she trades with.   And we do have some very talented local artists.

Perhaps your charity would be willing to trade and item that gertting "ho hum" in your area, but would be exciting and new to us.   It doesn't have to be football related, but since we are located right in Packer territory, maybe something like dat would be a big hit in your community.   M says she knows for a fact from all her travels dat there are Packer fans all over the US and, even in other countries.  When D wears his Packer cap he gets lots of comments - even when they went to Europe.   We also have humans here that follow and support other teams.
You can help by contacting your local animal charity and mention to dem that the  http://www.bayareahumanesociety.com/ would be interested in talking to dem about possible items that could be traded.   It would be exciting for your animal charity to get something they normally don't get and it would be exciting for our animal charity to get something new and different too.

Your charity can contact Lisa Peters  via email at lisakay@bayareahumanesociety.com  or via telephone at 920-469-3110, ext. 112.

Now please note - M does not know what items they have on hand to trade.  She just pulled the pictures from the Packer Pro Shop website as examples.   You would have to contact Lisa Peters to find out what they have to trade.

Please help spread the word \and contact your local favorite animal charity.  

updated 10-13-10 because we're getting comments.  Seems to be a little confusing.  

Just call your local charity and have them email the Bay Area Humane Society and they can work out the details of what items they might be able to trade.  

We has to help each other and we anipals are good at dat.

Your friend Mairo.

this is an interesting idea....I am not sure I understand it completely. You are looking for "trade" items for this charity to sell?
What about local crafters? Maybe they could make items and then donate them to the shelter to sell or they could sell them and give the proceeds to the shelter?
This is the time of year when all of the craft fairs start for the holidays....maybe Christmas/Chanukah related crafts or am I off base?
No matter what you are wonderful to get the word out like this

That's a cool idea !

Marg said...

That does sound like a good idea. I guess just trade things around that would sell in another area. Guess we all just need to know what is popular in what areas. But it is a good thought.

What a great idea. Pop is a HUGE GB Packer fan as is TW's BBF's bro in law. Packers, like our Yankees, have fans all over. Autographed items tend to sell in any market. I'm down wid this!
