Help ZUGGY help the KIDS!

Authored by Jean Alfieri and illustrated by Evelon McDonald:
Zuggy the Pug – Thanksgiving
is a short-story poem set in an interactive book for kids of all ages.

These books are currently in production and our goal is to raise enough money to deliver enough (along with a pack of crayons and a Zuggy stuffed Pug) for all kids unfortunately spending the Thanksgiving holiday at the Colorado Springs Children’s Hospital on Thanksgiving this year. 

Our Goal:  $2,400 --
Deadline: September 5, 2017

Please join us on this 2017 Coloring Book Campaign!

How wonderful would it be to bring a smile to the face of a hospitalized child on Thanksgiving?  A donation of any amount is greatly appreciated! 

What would help this effort even MORE is for you to pass this along to others who may assist us in achieving our goal!

Thank you in advance for your support!  Here’s to dreams coming true!

Love-n-Pugs, Jean & Zuggy

Zuggy the Pug was a huge hit yesterday in his first major debut! Zuggy’s Thanksgiving coloring book was warmly received by the kids at the Colorado Children’s Hospital in Denver. There were only a few who made it down to the atrium for the reading, but they were a great audience. They dug into their Zuggy tote bag for the book and crayons and got right to work! They sat their stuffed Zuggy out to watch and giggled as the story unfolded.

My husband and son were a huge help in assembling the tote bags in advance, and then we split up to deliver the 100 gift bags to the different floors after the reading. It was heartbreaking to see all the many ailments being fought; yet it was inspiriting to exchange many smiles and “thanks” (from kids and parents!) receiving the special gift. It truly was a blessed Thanksgiving for our family!

We are thankful for all of your abundant love and support with this project! GO ZUGGY GO!

This is truly exciting!
We've increased the goal to expand this coloring book campaign beyond Colorado Springs!
We're going to look into using all extra funds to bring Zuggy the Pug Thanksgiving books, crayons, and stuffed Zuggys to ANOTHER city! We're already exploring what other Children's Hospital may want to host Zuggy's campaign on Thanksgiving.
As we work through the details - you keep donating! More to come!

Okay My Peoples –
(Since you are Jean’s people, you are -by default- My People too!)

It seems our “Help Zuggy Help the Kids” coloring book campaign on GoFundMe.com has stalled. It’s time to rally! We are SOOO close to our goal. It’d be a shame to give up now!

Thank you (and 2 paws up) to all who have contributed! Your donations are greatly appreciated. Every dollar gets us closer to the $2,000 goal.

For those who haven’t yet contributed (or those who want to give more!) – now is the time …
THIS WEEKEND ONLY – You will receive your very own “Zuggy the Pug – Thanksgiving” book for any donation of $55 or more!
But wait … that’s not all! Act now and you will receive a SECOND “Zuggy the Pug – Thanksgiving” book for a friend! That’s right – for every donation made this week (Saturday and Sunday) of $55 or more, you will receive not 1, but TWO Zuggy books, so you can share the PUG LOVE!!!

Even if you can’t donate at this time, you can help us by sharing the link, passing along this note, chatting about it w/ a friend – there are many ways to spread the word! And we especially appreciate your prayers!

Remember “Help Zuggy Help the Kids” on GoFundMe. com

Come on Peoples!!! Let’s raise some cash!
