Well, we're not exactly sure yet. It won't be a bear puzzle - Sal says they're reserved for ME and my next one will be in 2015.
Actually we're hoping YOU will join in the fun with your own ideas…..and run a little event of your own.
If 20 people each undertook to raise $500, we could have $10,000 for our Bear Buddy!! How cool would that be!! And then there would be another lucky lucky bear just like me! Of course, all-size events will help us achieve our total - so a donation tin at the office coffee corner for a month will bring the tally along too!!
One of my bear mums just held a High Tea afternoon for a charity, cooking up some fabulous cakes, biscuits and pies @ $50 head, hoping to raise $600. 40 friends supported her, and along with a wine auction, brought the total to $3000. Held at home on a wintry day it brought warmth to a very worthy cause. How easy is that!!!
I know that all of you - MY FAMILY - have friends out there who will be willing to give us bears a helping paw You just need to dream up your little event, set a date and send the invites!!
Why wait till we get our new buddy's name and photo?? You can hold an event now! You can donate your money directly to PeacebyPiece campaign or via Adoptamoonbear
But please share your story with us about your event (even send pictures) so we can share it with everyone!
Sal is working on a BIG list of GREAT fuNraising Ideas for you, your office and your school - and will be back in touch with you very soon!! She would love to have some of your favourite ideas so please email her. Sal will provide pages of information from Animals Asia about Nanning to help you get your message across! But here's a ready link if you can't wait to get going! Remember we have cute cards & tea towels you can sell !!! And of course, you can still just donate!!!!
