1st Day of Summer!

The first day of summer falls on June 21st.  The timing of the solstice depends on when the Sun reaches its northernmost point from the equator. The word solstice comes from the Latin word solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop).  It is the day with the most hours of sunlight during the whole year.

Here are some summer fun ideas to celebrate the first day of summer this year:

FUR ANIMAL SHELTERS:

Hold a SUMMER SALE-A-BRATION!  Offer pet adoptions at half price on the first day of summer or hold an open house showcasing your facility and the animals looking for a FURever home!

 
 
FUR CANCER ORGANIZATIONS:
 
Have a survivors picnic and enjoy the longest day of the year with outdoor fun and a celebration of life!

 





FUR EARTH CONSERVATION GROUPS:
 
A summer solstice party is in order!  Have a yoga session in the morning, followed by an organic lunch and conclude with a star gazing party at night!  A great way to celebrate Mother Earth and illustrate everything you do FUR THE EARTH!

National Lemonade Day!

Did you know today is lemonade day?  If you were a kid when I was a kid, a lemonade stand was a great neighborhood project and a way to raise money for local charities.

Here are a few “updated” lemonade stand ideas you can use for your organization, business or non-profit to raise money and awareness FUR your cause!






AT THE OFFICE:
Set up a lemonade stand in the office lounge or cafeteria.  Offer lemonade throughout the day for a donation to a favorite charity or non-profit in need.  It’s also an easy way to create awareness for a cause you care about!

AT YOUR EVENT:
Make your next event sweeter with an “old fashion” lemonade stand.  In fact, why not make the entire event an “old school” effort?  Pick a decade, year or theme and go FUR it!  Invite a local cover band to play music that fits your theme or decade.
 
 
 
 
AT THE BAR:
Lemonade libations anyone?  Why not connect with a local bar and have a Sweet & Sour Happy Hour?  For every lemonade libation, a donation to your cause will be made!  Fun, easy and oh so good!  Enjoy!
