Challenge Grant Time

It is getting a little WNYC-ish ... but here I go ... I have a challenge grant to help us reach our goal ...

A Yorkie Owner will donate the final $175, if we can raise $175 by 9 pm Wednesday night.

Yes, you read that correctly ...

If you haven't given, please do so now! And if you given but want to give a little bit more, wonderful.

Thank you!

Let's raise that last bit of money before 9 pm Wednesday so I can stop emailing.

Again, thank you.

Almost There! Please Help!

I hope you will help! I am sorry to keep asking but I am talking about no puddles!

As I mentioned in the What's Up with McCarren Dog Run Email, we might need to do another around of Fundraising.

Yes, we do. We received the project budget and we are short a little more than $2,000.

If we could all donate something ($100, $50 or $20 or another amount) in the next 48 hours, will be able to pay a deposit to the contractor.

Those who can give $50 or more, please give. And for those that $50 is a stretch, please give $20. All donations are tax-deductible.

I know y'all are as tried of me asking for money as I am for asking. But we are so close .... An anonymous dog run users has offered to match the first $500 we raise. did you read that? Raise $500 and we will have $1,000. that will take us to the half way to the $2,000 need.

Please help! To donate, Click Here - and click on the chip in icon to your right.

Please give Today!

Forever thankful for all your support! Christine (Valencia & Ursula - the demon dogs)
