The Story

This fundraiser is to help Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation, Inc., a non profit 501c3 charity.  

This decorated tree project was inspired by the work my husband does to help a local organization.  His organization helps to fund other organizations who in turn help children, domestic abuse, etc.  Their biggest annual fundraiser is a Festival of Trees, which is a decorated tree raffle and auction.  I thought why not do this to help the organization I am most passionate about, Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation, Inc.  The concept was to ask IG lovers to donate an ornament, handmade or store bought, then a tree would be decorated with the collection.  One name will be drawn among all who donate, and the tree plus ornament collection will be shipped to them.  

It is simple to use Youcaring to donate.  Just hit the 'Give Now' button.  No fees are collected, unless you choose to give for their services. (There is an 'Edit this amount ' button which needs to be adjusted to zero.)  Money goes directly to the Italian Greyhound Rescue foundation's Paypal account.   

$1 for one entry, $5 for 6 entries, $20 for 25 entries into the drawing.

Entries accepted through November 3, 2013 untill midnight eastern starndard time.  Drawing winner selected and announced on November 4, 2013.

The Lil Olive pipsqeauk ornament has arrived.  It was made by Lori Brown, the IG rescue representative of Hawaii, and ShakaDogHawaii.com .  This is a 6 inch mini version of her very popular pipqueaks, made to look like Lil Olive, an IG who lived her life as a mill dog.  Many thanks to Lori, Lil Olive and her Mom for donating to this tree fundraiser raffle.
