|So it begins. OK it does seem early to be talking about the SBPA Calendar for 2019 but actually some of the work began a month ago.Part of the calendar project requires us to collect the 2019 event information from the other charities in San Carlos. Imagine that we are asking folks to finalize their events 10 months before the new year starts but that is how we manage to get the calendar printed and delivered in late fall. Of course we are depending on the managers of the other groups in town to get that info to us. They always come through in time!
Event info goes to firstname.lastname@example.org
Another huge part of the project is collecting good quality pictures of local rescue animals to feature each month. This is not an easy thing because many people have cute pictures of their rescue pets but often the resolution (quality) of the pictures make it impossible to enlarge them for the calendar. So we again are dependent on all of you to take and submit good quality photos for consideration. Remember: just your fur baby in a nice colorful background, no humans or body parts showing. The higher the resolution the better chance we can use the photo. Last year many of your came through and we hope that happens again this year.
Photo submissions go to email@example.com
The next step which started this month is the collection of donations and ads to help pay for the printing of the calendar. This is another hugely time consuming effort and requires us to reach out to everyone for help. Many of our businesses buy ads each year so that is wonderful and some individuals also contribute every year. This year we are asking all of San Carlos to consider a donation to SBPA at this time. We did 2,144 free spay/neuter surgeries and hope to repeat that in 2018. The only reason we won't will be lack of money. So, please consider making a donation to the SBPA now to keep us moving forward with our mission.
I hope you'll help us again this year.
