Jordan’s Way Becomes To Marshall
The nationally recognized animal welfare advocate, Jordan’s Way, chose Friends of Marshall Animals to be one of the stops on their 50-state rescue/shelter fundraising tour.
Our fundraiser will take place Wednesday, July 21, 2021, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., at the current shelter. The scheduling was determined by Jordan’s Way’s travel timetable and we’re honored to be one of only 20 stops in Texas.
The event itself is a live fundraiser; essentially a telethon broadcast to a Facebook audience. In order to meet our goal of $15,000 in four hours, it’s very important that we get prominent local citizens, such as yourself, involved.
Do you have a good sense of humor? Are you willing to participate in stunts that would be beneath your dignity for anything other than a great cause? We need you!
Some of the activities may include:
– taking a pie in your face
– enjoying a bucket of water poured over your head
– bobbing for dog bones in whipped cream
– shaving your head
– coloring your hair
– eating dog food
If you’re willing to do even more extreme stunts, we’d love to hear about it. We need good incentives to encourage people to donate!
You decide at what total fundraising amount you’re willing to participate in certain stunts. (Note that no one volunteer will necessarily be chosen to perform all of the stunts he or she is willing to do.)
At $1,000, you’re willing to take a pie in the face
At $5,000, you’re up for a bucket of ice poured over your head
At $10,000, you’ll let a puppy lick whipped cream off your face
At $15,000, you’ll eat dog food
At $20,000, you’ll allow your head to be shaved
Participants are encouraged to recruit other willing volunteers, and also to reach out to their friends, family, & social media with challenges “on the side.” For example, you might say to them, “please help the fundraiser get to $500, and I will let them throw a pie in my face.”
We are also recruiting local businesses to match donations. They will be recognized on the live feed and also have a post of their own on our social media. Our Facebook page alone has over 12,000 followers.
