Starting on August 14 through September 30, we started an online drive for financial support. As of today we have raised $800.00 towards our $20,000 goal.
We have partnered with two forms of online fundraising for the Pet Prescription Team organization.
The first is Gofundme.com. The Pet Prescription Team first developed a site with our mission, started a campaign about our mission and have used social networking and email contacts to promote our fundraiser and have started to receive donations through our efforts.
The second is Giving Work. Through Giving Work we are able to auction the various items we have received for the Big Roundup in a live online auction. Those who win the final bid will receive a tax deductible receipt for their records.
eBay Giving Work is a program that enables members of the eBay community to donate to their favorite cause. Sellers can give a portion of the proceeds from their sales, buyers can add a donation to their purchase during checkout, and anyone with a PayPal account can donate to nonprofits right away "“ without buying or selling anything. Better yet, eBay Giving Work makes it easy and cost effective for non-profits to sell items in the world's largest online marketplace. Special features help non-profit items stand out and, if the listing sells, eBay will credit back 100% of their insertion and final value fees.
So we are asking you to get involved as a supporter of the Pet Prescription Team. For the next 6 weeks items will be up for bid with all proceeds going to the Pet Prescription Team.
So How Can You Help?
Items for auction
We are requesting items for auction. Some of the most popular items are tickets to sports events and concerts, dinner coupons, trips, furniture and dog stuff.
Get the word out
It's not necessarily true that if you build it, they will come "“ you still need to promote the event with word of mouth, to friends, family coworkers and neighbors. It's a lot easier to ask someone to go check out some items up for auction than to ask for a cash donation to support your cause.
Keep checking on new items listed daily
One of the many benefits of running an online auction fundraiser is that it can be adjusted while the auction is in progress, something that cannot happen at a live event. Evaluating the auction while in progress can ensure that revenue objectives are met and exceeded. It also gives us the opportunity to add to our listing daily.
So please share the following two sites with your friends on your social networks and make sure they are aware of our fundraising efforts at the Pet Prescription Team.
