A New Challenge for ADOPT PHOEBE Pub Night Fundraiser - March 26

 ·  Mar. 8, 2011

Hey everyone, I have some great news. An anonymous donor has given the SAINTS volunteers and supporters a challenge. This donor will match every dollar raised up to $5000.00 so that Phoebe will finally become Phoebe Rose Hine, What does that mean? It means if we can raise $5000.00, than the donor will donate $5000.00 to the pub night. That means Carol will have to adopt Phoebe and SAINTS will get much needed funds for medications and vet treatments for the saintly SAINTS.




I just recd a cheque in the mail from Telus for about $31 and I think lots of Telus customers are getting this due to some CRTC ruling... I will be donating this to SAINTS... perhaps others think this is a good use of these " found " monies too !!

I'm confused to & have the same thought process as Bunny... just Raise as much as I can.


No we don't know what the total is. We aren't going to tally up the amount until the day of the event - that way we keep everyone - including ourselves what the total is going to be.


Yay Phoebe.
Phoebe Rose Hine, what a beautiful name.
If I had only known this a couple of days ago I would have made things a little different.

Wow, this got complicated. I'm just trying to raise as much money as I possibly can. It matters not to me who gets adopted. Carol can adopt me, after all she has some Bunny's in her care, what's one more.


Ok but I was going by what YOU said Sheila and that is what is incidated in the poster; Caro posted that after you hadd already outlined the premise of teh event. So I think we need to go with what the poster says and what you posted as the event outline so based on carol's comment.


I am getting confused by all this also so I just went back to Carol's words on my first post about this event.

2."NOOOOO!!!! i meant you guys had to raise at least 10 grand to make me adopt phoebe, not the other way around!!!!. are you freaking crazy!!??? i cant raise that kind of money and i am not adopting phoebe!!!!!!!"

So I am sticking by what my fearless leader says we need to raise 10 grand to make her adopt Phoebe


thays what i thought too. so what is it , to save carol from adopting phoebe or having her adopt her. have to make that clear.


mmmm yes the matching part makes sense but just to be clear-- we have to raise $10,000 to SAVE carol from having to adopt pheobe if we only raise $8,000 she must adopt pheobe.


It is, but if we raise $5,000, the anonymous donor will match our $5000 and we will have $10,000. Of course, we can still raise more than $5000. $10,000 would be great but the anonymous donor can only go up to $5000. If we raise $10,000, we still get $5,000 which would give SAINTS 15,000. If we only raise $4,000 then the donor will match the $4000 and we would end up with $8,000. Does that make sense.
