Calling All Animal Lovers!!!
Hello,
I am part of a non-profit organization called Loving Lives for All Mistreated Animals (LLAMA). We are attempting to build a no-kill animal shelter in my hometown. We have the location picked out, the building designed, and the staff on standby for when it opens. Here's the catch, though, we don't have enough money. I know that this isn't what we discuss on this forum, but I hope that many of you care about animals as much as I do.

All I'm asking for is a small donation and that you get 3 others to donate. If you donate $5 to our cause and each person you ask donates $5 and so on, we will be able to raise thousands of dollars in a short period of time.

In order to keep this thread from being marked as an advertisement, I will keep the post clear of the donation information until a good number of people wish to donate.

A link to info about the organization might help. I'm personally not an animal lover. I have no problems with pointing a 30-06 at a stray animal on my property. But those that are animal lovers will probably want some sort of info on what it is you are doing with the donations.

I contribute time and finances to an emergency response organization for animals, but if you've got a link, I'd happily pass it on to help out. Like Germanyt said though, first I need lots more info.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

A quick google search only gives me a facebook page.

And that page hasn't been updated for nearly six months.

It might be a good idea to discuss the addition of such a link in the "forum management" section so the occasional bunch of veterans and moderators can act all important over it Big Grin

RE: Calling All Animal Lovers!!!
Yeah, our Facebook page flopped and needs to be deleted. I am currently in the process of making the website (have been for a while now) and I will post the link as soon as it's working. What information do people want? We're a new and quite small organization, 10 members, and most of our members are elderly and know almost nothing about computers. Also, we are not recognized as a NPO by the government so there's that hassle.

I've put the general design of the new facility on the site, a record of our fundraising efforts, a quick history of our organization (not much there), and contact information. Anything else?

RE: Calling All Animal Lovers!!!
Alas, without being registered, you are basically asking eveyone to trust you, that you are what you say. I'm not saying you aren't legit, it's just that will be a MAJOR roadblock for any serious fundraising. Personally, I just can't get behind something that I don't know is on the level.

Sorry man. If things change though, definitely let me know. I have some pretty decent connections for that type of thing, and they are throughout North America, and even Europe. (It's suprising how globally people will get behind a local cause!)

Yes, I'm quite aware that no being an official NPO causes difficulties. We've only been around for 18 months or so, though.

RE: Calling All Animal Lovers!!!
This thread may have been better if posted after the creation of the website.
I am in no way saying that it isn't legit or a worthy cause. Nor am I saying the opposite.

I am an animal lover but am also poor. Sorry.

If you get the website up I'd love to spread the link around like the plague.
