Hi <<First Name>>
I won't beat about the bush - I need your help!
Daisy has become involved with Blue Acre Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Centre. She's working her little socks off there along with a very small army of very small volunteers. Right now they need to build a rat-proof quarantine area for the ducklings. They have about 1/10 of the number of breeze blocks that they need to do this. Do you know anyone who has over-ordered for a project who may be kind enough to donate their leftovers? Or do you have any knocking around you could donate? Although it is primarily a Horse Rescue Centre, they also have two pigs, several goats a couple of dogs and more than a smattering of ex-bat hens on-site too.
I know a lot of you are in some way connected to the equine world - do you have any useful bits you could donate to their cause? They're particularly short of Turnout Rugs but any/all tack/equipment in safe condition would be gratefully accepted.
If you're thinking, "no, no" to both of the above, can I ask you to do this for me? Shop at smile.amazon.co.uk and set Blue Acre as your charity? You can set up your amazon account to do this here. Then every time you shop Amazon from your laptop or desktop, they will donate a few pennies to the charity, and it all adds up. You don't pay a penny for this service, so you have absolutely nothing to lose.
Irritatingly, you have to set it up on your phone app too - the change you make on your desktop machine isn't site-wide (I only found this out this morning, so the previous charity I supported missed out on a number of sales).
On your App go to the three lines (Hamburger) at the bottom of the screen (iPhone) probably the top of the screen on an Android. Tap on Programmes & Features then See all. AmazonSmile is fortunately near the top of the list. Tap on it and turn ON this app feature because it's off by default. If everyone does this we'll raise much-needed funds!
Finally, my lovely friend and neighbour, Amanda Farr is organising a Charity Teeth and Nails day for Saturday, April 24th. Why, you might ask, is Amanda organising it? Well, she works for Microsoft and because of her kind involvement, Microsoft will match every £ we make that day! ... obviously, I will be doing your dog's teeth 😉.
Every penny of this will be going to Blue Acre Horse Rescue. Because I'll have Amanda's help that day, I will be able to do dogs over my normal 8Kg weight limit. Please WhatsApp me for an appointment: 07767341424.
- Teeth - £40.00 - half-hour session (appt will be 40 mins total)
- Nails - £15 - 15 minute stand-alone appt or can be tacked onto a teeth cleaning appt.
If all of the above is a bit of a faff, please donate to them now by clicking here.
This is what the next couple of weeks look like currently.
