Feeling Philanthropic?


Dog Momma here. Some of you might remember that I work for a health-based non-profit in Manhattan. Every December, we have a black tie dinner which includes a silent auction. Last year, I was able to create an awesome silent auction package with your donations for a lucky doggie owner. I am asking for your help again.

If you have a pet-related product (gift certificates, leashes, treats, doggie clothing, people clothing about pets, etc.) that I can combine into a nice (upper end) basket, please let me know! Or, if you are an artist and would like to donate a painting, drawing, print, etc., please tell me!  I include all companies which donate on my employer/the non-profit’s website, and we list each company in the program for the evening as well.  400 doctors, their guests, and their patients attend, and this year our event will be held at 583 Park Ave.  Email me at marianne(dot)d(dot)howard(at)gmail(dot)com if interested. Thanks so much for considering!

    Wonderful work you are doing and I hope you get lots of donations in. Unfortunately, I don’t have anything I can send your way but, if I come across anything in the future, I’ll most certainly keep you in mind.

    You are so right about humans’ eagerness to spend on their pets. Great idea for a silent auction package!

    What a brilliant idea! I would love to help but I am afraid that I am unable to ship to where you are! If you want to hold your auction in the UK…BOL! I hope it is a success

    We will definitely pass the word!! Social Media can work wonders for donations!! Hope you get tons of donations…unfortunately…our mama isn ‘t very good at doing anything creative that you could use in a basket. 😦 xoxo Chloe and LadyBug
