not to be a freak out or anything but....

Carol  ·  Mar. 10, 2013

sheila tells me so far... we have only sold 35 tickets to the pub day and that totally worries me. maybe it was a mistake to move it closer to home? to try an afternoon event?
ahhh ratz! i thought it would make it easier and more enjoyable for everyone if we could just finish up here and then go straight to the pub. yikes...maybe i was wrong?

we REALLY need this event to be successful to get us thru the next couple of months. this is the long donations dry as a desert period when if we don't fundraise enough to pay the bills, we will be choking in deep dusty doo-doo shit.

so if sheila could please repost the pub event poster and if we could all spread the word a bit more, maybe we can squeak thru this and continue to hang in without me in a huge deficit freakout flap for a couple of months more.

i really do have to win the lottery so we can just do the work minus the financial worry ulcers attached.
but until then..does anyone know anyone who will come and support us at the saints fundraising pub event?

folks could actually come here for a full tour and then head down to the pub for some lunch. it sounds like a good way to spend the day..hanging out with the animals, then grabbing a burger and beer to help them keep on living well here????

that's just got to be a good way to spend a day...isn't it?



Please pledge MP for Marvin, Max, Maybelle Please pledge MP for Mama T.
Your praises she will tell.

A little pledge for Team MP
Would make his heart so glad.

And Jingles will lay an egg in your honour.


TEAM BARN...PLEDGE FOR TEAM BARN...TEAM BARN..PLEDGE FOR TEAM BARN... ( this is to be said in a Vincent Price voice over & over & over again until you simply cannot stop yourself & are driven to sit at your computer & pledge through pay-pal, or simply can't resist the urge to reach into your purse/wallet & write a chq with TEAM BARN PLEDGE written in the memo section )

MWHAAAAA <------ Vincent Price LOL :-)


It was really a last minute decision because the weather has been so iffy.


And Black Buddy is a poster child for Team MP too. If my mini yard sale yesterday hadn't been so spur-of-the-moment I would have put a picture of him on my sign


Marvin and the gang would appreciate any donations to TEAM MP. Just one look in his soulful green eyes would convince anyone to support him.


lets just all get as much as we can for all the animals, but you do know that house team is going to win. lol

Penny, we have an ADORABLE BUNNY in the barn too you know. GO TEAM BARN GO.

I put a poster up in my building today of the article that appeared in the Costco Employee Newsletter. Usually people scribble rude comments on any postings and I figured it would be thrown in the garbage immediately. A lovely active senior in my building just knocked at my door. She had a $50 bill in her hand. How rude of me, I didn't ask if she wanted change... I politely grabbed the $50 and asked for the correct spelling of her name so I can get a tax receipt. I also gave her one of our collector cards. She loves PIGS. Pigs....hmmm, where do they reside....THE BARN!!!!!


Go TEAM MP!!! I have friends from work coming as well as some donations on my pledge sheet.


Sorry Lynne & Mo - GO TEAM MP BUILDING!!! The frail dogs, FIV shy cats and adorable bunnies give BIG thanks for any donations!!!!

If anypne reading is not able to attend but looking to make a donation...pledge it to TEAM BARN...pretty please ...Lol..Go Team Barn. Ellie thanks you very much from the bottom of her princess heart


Hey Sheila - can you put a ticket aside for me as well. Thanks! I can pick it up next Sunday from the MP Room office and leave the money there for you, if that works.


Sheila-- could you please put two tickets aside for my husband and I? I will try to round up some more people and let you know if I need more than two tickets........ Thanks!! : )


i still need to get my tickets going to roust up some friends to come with me. how many tickets need to be sold.


off topic but I noticed the 'Canucks for kids' is also in the share the bounty contet. great cause, maybe some votes there would also be awesome.

Carol, my business sponsored a few tables at the gala. What can I do to help with the pub day besides buy tickets? Would a monetary donation be the best? Maybe buy some items for the silent auction? Let me know, I'll help in any way I can.
