365 Days To Raise Awareness!
Hey guys. I know this is going to sound crazy but I want to try and make 2011 the year for animals! I made a New Year’s resolution to gather a large portion of the shirts I would need for this project but, well, suddenly it’s almost time for a whole new set of resolutions! Where did this year go? So now here we are, with less than a month, to really try and get our 365 Days project going. It can happen though. I know it can! I will work like crazy to get local groups’ shirts. And I have a few people out there who have said they would send me shirts too. That’s awesome! I just need more. We can do this! The cat group I work with has given me permission to use their P.O. Box so now we have a place they can be shipped. This is a simple idea but I really think it’s going to catch on!
All I need for you to do is pick an animal rescue, shelter, advocacy group, nonprofit organization, idea, etc. that you want to support. Buy a shirt from them and have it sent to us. We will also need a short description of what the shirt is about – the mission, where the group is located, where they can be found online, any important information that you want to be sure people know about them. You can even tell the group about 365 Days and they may wish to write the bio themselves. This is a cool idea because you’re not only helping them by buying a shirt but the amount of exposure they get from this project could be immense! I really believe this could catch on and be a fun, creative way of raising awareness for animal issues!
If you’re interested in helping us make this project a success, please leave a comment below with the name of the organization, rescue, event, etc. and we will send you an email with the P.O. Box you can send the shirt too. Then you can respond with the paragraph about it! This is going to be great! We will be setting up a page specifically for this project since it’s so huge where we will have a list of every shirt we have so far! Also, if you want to know more specifics about 365 Days of Animal Advocacy, see the post where I first mentioned this idea here. Thanks guys! I am SO excited!
Oh! More logistics – I generally wear a small in adult unisex shirts. Thanks again!
