Total raised, thanks and what's next....

Post by Maddog on Tue Sep 02, 2014 8:22 am

First off thank you everyone who entered. We had a fantastic response from the forum, Facebook and Twitter. I must thank my behind the scenes helper who pulled all the pieces in to place and set me on the right track just as I was losing the plot, found our judge and let me bend her ear and bounce ideas back and forth as well as sponsoring some of the prizes. This would never have worked without you  bighug Thank you to Sarah for running the forum side of things and Shell and Emma for doing everything twitter related  thankyou
Judging is taking place now, but with so many entries it will take a few days. I will announce the results on Saturday evening, hopefully at 6 pm.

All the prizes have been sponsored so there is no cost to Lsos at all and the total amount taken is...........

WTG everyone involved - what a great amount raised.

Great idea, too, to do it across the array of social media.

Making it an annual thing sounds great Wendie Thumbs Up
 It was such a good idea and wonderful that so many people joined in. You must have been so busy putting all those photos on facebook  bigluff

With reference to the 'What's next.......

Just before the online dog show was announced, I had an idea for a fundraiser:-

With so many fantastic photos that there have been on the forum, over the last few months, that maybe choose 1 or several and hold a caption comp. Perhaps have ones that feature foster dogs in (to help raise their profiles) and ask people to come up with a suitable caption, in an apt and or humerous way?

Also, if there could be a separate comp just on this forum, for people who do not want to be on Facebook etc and then could have another one, running simultaneously on Fb, Twitter etc.?

Maybe charge £1 for every caption entered?

This is just an idea and may need fine tuning!

Hope you all think that this may work and raise funds for LSOS. Smile

Happy To Be Hounded!
