Arbor Day, Earth Day & National Adopt A Pet Day - OH MY!


WOW!  Three April Observance Days that offer SO much!   Not to mention the Holy Day of Easter for the Christian community and Passover for those of the Jewish faith.



Arbor Day:  April 26th 

For CANCER ORGANIZATIONS:

Why not hold a mini-fundraiser by planting trees or selling saplings in memory or honor of someone that has been touched by cancer?  Or hold a special ceremony  and awareness event at a local park or green space.  Sell colored cancer awareness ribbons (pink for breast cancer, blue for colorectal, purple for pancreatic, etc.) and decorate the trees!



Earth Day:  April 22nd 

For EARTH CONSERVATION:

Host a Nature Walk and Scavenger Hunt at a local park or nature preserve.  For a registration fee, guides from your organization can educate the public on the flora and fauna of your area while they enjoy getting up close and personal with nature!  By organizing a walk along wooded trails, you can include a Scavenger Hunt for the kids (and dogs of course).  By giving the public information about the parks and recreation areas in your town, your organization will gain new members and you will generate a little “green” for Earth Day. 



National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day:  April 30th

For ANIMAL ORGNAIZATIONS:

There is no better day that to promote your shelter and the GOOD you do!  April 30th is a Tuesday, so why not hold a TAKE ME HOME TUESDAY adoption effort?  Anyone coming to the shelter on Tuesday, April 30th and adopting a pet would receive a special pet parent package, discounted adoption fees, and/or entry into raffle drawings.  Offer adoption incentives like free food and promotional giveaways – anything that will entice the public to visit YOUR shelter to see the GOOD you do AND take home a furry friend!
