Hey Everybody! The Christmas season is now underway! Five years ago I got the idea to dress up as the Elf on the Shelf and go around to local businesses and collect money, donations, and coats for charities like Toys for Tots, and homeless shelters.
This year, I’m doing it again but this time the cause is for our four legged friends at the Randolph County Humane Society! A great 501c3 organization located in Southern Illinois.
We’re going to be collecting the following donations:
Money – The RCHS currently leases their building. They need to find a new building so that they can accept cats. The reason why they can’t currently accept cats is because they aren’t allow to have cats and dogs in the same space. Money will also help with their operational costs and help give medical treatment to the animals when needed.
Bleach & Pine-Sol – Cleanliness is next to Godliness right? As you can imagine, bleach and Pine-Sol really helps with that.
- Fleece Blankets – The dogs love them! But NO Afghan Blankets! Teeth and claws get stuck in
them, and it could hurt the pups.
- Toys and Dog Food!
Another really cool thing I learned about the RCHS is that if you have a dog and money is tight, they will even help you with animal food, toys, and supplies to help take care of them until get back on your feet!
So if you’re a business owner, or you want the Elf on the Shelf to come by your business, just respond back letting me know you would like to make a donation, and when you would like me to swing by!
Thank you so much for your support!
