February Toy Drive Info
The month of February marks our miniature schnauzer Tootsie’s 5th Gotcha Dayanniversary. As many of you know, she is also recovering from cataract removal surgery – and recovering nicely, I might add! In any case, this seemed like the perfect time to do something special for her.
And so we shall! Our toy drive this month will benefit Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of Houston [MSRH] in Tootsie’s honor. It will be an online nationwide drive, and we will raise toys in the following ways:
- The sale of our one-for-one toy: All toy donations generated from the sale of our one-for-one toy will benefit MSRH. When you buy one for your pooch we will donate one to MSRH. When you buy one as a gift we will donate one to MSRH. If you buy 5 we will donate 5! The only time this will NOT be the case is if our one-for-one toy is purchased for a specific organization; when this happens, we send the organization the purchased toy/s as well as the generated toy donation/s.
- Used toy mail-in campaign: We are encouraging readers to box up the used dog toys their pooches no longer play with and mail them to us! Dogs don’t care if toys are new or used – in fact, used toys can be more interesting because of all the new smells they come with! All toy donations we receive in the mail this month will be added to the box [or boxes!] headed to MSRH. If you’d like to do this, shoot us an email at [email protected] and we’ll send you our address.
- New fans and followers: This month I will donate 1 toy for each 50 new followers on Twitter, and 1 toy for each new “Fan” on Facebook and each new follower of this blog.
So spread the word and help us help needy dogs!
