Did you know National Friendship Week is always celebrated the third week of August? What a great theme to use for awareness events and fundraisers…here are a few ideas:
FUR ANIMAL ORGANIZATIONS:
Everyone knows a dog is man’s best friend and cats sit right beside them! Celebrate the friendship animals bring to our lives with an Open House at your shelter, office building or local community park. Have fun planning what you will serve! Two obvious choices: hotdogs and “cat”chup! Arrange “meet and greets” with animals that are looking for their forever home and have adoption day specials and giveaways.
FUR CANCER ORGANIZATIONS:
Many friendships are formed through hardships. Celebrate National Friendship Week by hosting a Friendship Feast! This “pot” luck dinner, lunch or even brunch will solidify the bonds of friendship and allow cancer patients to thank and celebrate their friends, and it will give both patient and friend a beautiful way to remind each other that no one has to face cancer alone.
FUR EARTH CONSERVATION GROUPS:
Mother Nature is a friend to all of us! Why not celebrate National Friend Week with an outreach program on how your community can be a friend to the environment? Showcase everything from how to recycle and reuse to how future generations can protect our planet. Think of fun and informational ways to highlight your organization and all the good you do for the earth!
