What a great thread!
My new company, Ark Angels, develops projects to raise money (ALL proceeds from these projects is donated to various animal rescues).
The first project that is almost completed is a music CD. An excellent band out of England (they have an excellent following in the UK) has donated all their talent and time to create a CD, all proceeds from the sale of the CD will go to rescues. I asked that they cover some of my favorite songs (ie, WIsh You Were Here, Harvest Moon, Hallelujah, Wild World, etc. etc.), and they have done a phenomenal job!!! All the artwork and graphics were donated as well, and I expect to sell at least a few thousand (at $20.00 per cd, many animals should benefit
. I have a very basic website up, need to work on that in the next week or so before the cd is for sale. Anyway, if you want a small glimpse of it, it's called arkangels.co.uk.
The next two projects we'll be working on........a fashion show that will be using only dogs that are in shelters or rescues, and will be up for adoption at the show. THe clothes will be donated by local designers, the models will be donating their time, and again, all dogs to walk to the runway will be from shelters and rescues
After that, we'll be working on a calendar for next year that will feature animals from various shelters and rescues as well.
ANyway, these are just a few ideas to throw out there. You would be surprised how many people are willing to donate their time and talents to help the animals in need
