Becoming an Ambassador is a great way for you to get involved in fundraising for our rescue. Obviously we share a passion for saving animals, and a FUNDraising page is a perfect way to engage your friends and family, while staying connected with our Fundraising Goals. "Our impact is greater when we work together!"
We've created a template: We've created a template to make it easier for you. You can edit as much as you'd like to personalize the message. Follow the instructions.
You are making a personal pledge on behalf of Hearts & Tails of Hope Pet Rescue. That’s the best thing! You are giving our message in your own voice, which lends credibility to your message. Here are some suggestions as you start communicating with your peers!
Reach out directly: Start by sharing your FUNdraising page with family members or friends. This will help build momentum and give your campaign exposure. This will also help you build confidence to reach out to broader circles. (TIP: Personalize your outreach by using nicknames or terms of endearment, or including something relevant to that person (example: Uncle Bobby, Grandma, etc.)
Share socially: Be sure to share your page with your social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn). You never know who shares your passion that might follow you on social media. Don’t forget to include the URL link to your direct FUNdraising page. You can get your URL by visiting your page, then copy the link from your browser or share directly from that page!
When posting on your social platforms, be sure to always tag us in your post:
Provide updates throughout the campaign: Share milestones with your supporters (i.e. “We’re halfway to our goal! Help me close the gap!”) and encourage them to invite family and friends to join them in support.
ALWAYS thank your supporters: Anytime someone contributes to your campaign it is so important to thank them, regardless of how much they gave. This makes your supporters feel seen and appreciated, and more likely to lend a hand in supporting your effort.
(TIP: You will receive an email to link to your FUNdraising page so you can see who has donated!
DEAR FOSTER MOM:
There I sat, alone and afraid,
You got a call and came right to my aid.
You bundled me up with blankets and love,
And, when I needed it most, you gave me a hug.
I learned that the world was not all that scary and cold,
That sometimes there is someone to have and to hold.
You taught me what love is, you helped me to mend,
You loved me and healed me and became my first friend.
And just when I thought you'd done all you do,
There came along not one new lesson, but two.
First you said, "Sweetheart, you're ready to go,
I've done all I can, and you've learned all I know."
Then you bundled me up with a blanket and kiss,
Along came a new family, they even have kids!
They took me to their home, forever to stay,
At first I thought you sent me away.
Then that second lesson became perfectly clear,
No matter how far, you will always be near.
And so, Foster Mom, you know I've moved on,
I have a new home, with toys and a lawn.
But I'll never forget what I learned that first day,
You never really give your fosters away.
You gave me these thoughts to remember you by,
We may never meet again, and now I know why.
You'll remember I lived with you for a time,
I may not be yours, but you'll always be mine.
