As donations are collected, LNPB will donate a $500.00 “Gift of Life “grant to 50 rescues in 50 states in hopes that many “paws” will be spending this holiday season in the comfort of a warm and loving environment! LNPB is inviting all of their supporters to join them as they reach out across America in an effort to assure we “Leave No Paws Behind” for the holidays!
WHEN: October 1, 2011 - December 31, 2011
WHERE: Coast to coast! LNPB will be "barking across America" on a virtual tour, kicking off in the LNPB home state of California and wrapping up in our nation's capital!
HOW YOU PARTICIPATE: LNPB is reaching out to all of you, our supporters, for a onetime donation of $5.00 and then asking you to please reach out to one friend to match your donation. You will also be able to nominate your favorite qualified rescue. (See qualifications below) Imagine that with a small donation of $5.00 YOU will be paying forward the gift of life for hundreds of animals this holiday season! Let’s spread the cheer!!!!
DETAILS: Beginning October 1, 2011, LNPB will begin their journey on the West coast wagging their tails across America, with a virtual stop at each and every state over a 13 week period (Please see detailed map below for our itinerary). Leave No Paws Behind will open a “Chip-In” so you can “follow the money” daily. As we begin our journey across America, and as donations grow and allow us, we will award the “gift of life” grant to the winning rescue from each state that has been chosen. We will request photos of all animals the winning rescues have saved with LNPB’S “gift of life” grant and during our “Happy Tails Hour” over the next 3 months the animals we post as “SAFE” and/or “ADOPTED” will be the paws YOU have helped save! LNPB is very excited about the possibility of helping and saving so many lives and if, with your help and support, we are successful, LNPB will continue and double our journey across America in 2012!
HOW YOUR RESCUE CAN PARTICIPATE: Please see our map for indication of when LNPB will be visiting your home state. You can nominate your favorite qualified rescue in the following way: During the first two kick off days (Saturday and Sunday) of the week we will be barking through your state, the supporters of a “qualified rescue” who posts the most “likes” to LNPB FB page will be chosen to receive the LNPB $500.00 "gift of life" grant. Please make sure when you post you state both the rescue name and state that you are voting for. (Please double check that they are qualified per the instructions below). At the end of each week LNPB will announce the winners.
QUALIFIED RESCUES: ALL rescues must have a 501(c) 3 status OR proof of a 1023 filing pending in order to participate in this campaign. LNPB will verify the winning rescue's filing status prior to dispersing ANY funds. LNPB requires both receipts and photos of all animals rescued before allotting the “gift of life” grant money.
