The animal non-profits I work with are always short on funds for spay/neuter, transport, boarding, you name it. The gist of the idea we had was for our business to offer special packages for web sites, and a portion of the project fee would be donated to the partner charity. The non-profits love it, my accountant says its legal, but I could use feedback on the idea, the presentation, ways to attract some attention in the surrounding community - anything.
On Oct. 10, my birthday, I will be running in the Portland (OR) Charity Half-Marathon, in affiliation with the American Cancer Society. I am selling photos I have taken in New Orleans, where I have lived for the past four years, in order to help raise at least $1,000 and hopefully reach my goal of $1,500 (and am also accepting direct donations). I will be officially running in memory of the late Emilie Lemmons of St. Paul MN, a dear friend of mine who died in Dec. 2008 after a long battle with sarcoma. She was 40 years old. [more inside]
