100 Gift Cards in 100 Days!

It wouldn't be March Break without Ty and Riley coming up with another fabulous idea to help Newf Friends and HART!

Carrying on their annual tradition, this year, 10 year old Ty and his 8 year old brother Riley have once again organized a super fundraiser -- over the next 100 days they hope to collect 100 pet related gift cards for Newf Friends and HART!

Why gift cards this year?  Gift cards to pet supply stores enable our foster families to pick up the supplies that they need to care for their fosters.   Some examples of items that foster families go through a lot of: leashes, collars, dog beds, toys, grooming sprays and supplies, and more.  When pups come into foster care we need  puppy pads, dishes and puppy pens.  Sometimes new fosters need to be set up with basic fostering supplies like crates, grooming tools, puppy gates and more.  And one thing we use a lot of are grooming services -- although we try hard to do most of our own grooming, many of the Newfs who come into our care are in need of professional grooming when they first arrive.

The great thing about gift cards is we can mail them out to our foster families across Ontario as needed so they can get the supplies they need quickly without great expense for us to ship the items to them.

If you would like to donate a gift-card to Ty and Riley's fundraiser there are a few ways you can do that:

Online gift cards can be emailed to newf.friends@gmail.com
You can snail mail gift cards to Newf Friends PO Box 1139 Bancroft, ON K0L 1C0
Or you can  email us to find out where to drop off your donation or meet up with a volunteer.
Gifts cards to large chains operating in Ontario are ideal because most of our foster families will be able to use them.  Having said that, we'd love gift cards to smaller independent stores too if they are in an area where we have several foster families.  Our busiest foster areas are: Mississauga, Brantford, Guelph, and Kanata.
