    Default PLEDGE A POUND - June update -POST 45 - OUR BEST MONTH YET!

    By now most of you will know that Pledge a pound was started in March last year, itís aim was to highlight and help the lesser known rescues, especially the ones that receive very few donations or have no fundraisers organised for them on the forum.

    How can you help?
    - All we ask is that you pledge a minimum of £1 a month you can send your donation via cheque or bank transfer (please pm me for details) or Paypal to pledgeapound@hotmail.co.uk (please send via gift with your forum name) you can also pay in advance if you prefer

    Last year we were able to help 3 rescues a month, however, the amounts they received varied, as the donations can vary each month, so to try and make it a little fairer, Iíve spoken to Denise and weíve decided to pay a set £75 each month, therefore, if we only raise £170 in the month, 2 rescues will each receive £75 with the remaining £20 being carried over to the following month (hope this makes sense).

    If each of the rescues has received a donation before the end of the year, we would like to bank the money for the Christmas fundraiser so each rescue receives at least 2 payouts a year.



    So again thank you to everyone that has been involved, remember donating £1 a month really does make a difference

    I will update the thread with a weekly total, and the names of the people that have sent their pledges so far, please pm me if Iíve missed you off the list, I do sometimes forget to update this post (especially if the forum is down)

    We are hoping to have a special fundraiser at the end of August fundraisers are currently being organised to help towards this and so far they have raised a total of £119.00

    A big thank you to KarenM for her beautiful crochet bunnies (you have to be quick to adopt one) http://forums.rabbitrehome.org.uk/sh...d.php?t=286915

    Helgalush for her pub quiz http://forums.rabbitrehome.org.uk/sh...d.php?t=287763

    Poppymoon and Eric for their lovely jewellery and other items which can be found in http://forums.rabbitrehome.org.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=53

    Tiger_Lily and Jaysmonkey both with items for sale http://forums.rabbitrehome.org.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=53



    If you are unsure of any of the above or would like an email to remind you to pledge each month please contact either myself or Denise (Bunnyaddict) or search the previous threads under my user name

    Last month we raised £262.50 - 3 rescues each received £75 which left £37.50 which will be added to this months total

    We are unable to accept any more requests from rescues to join Pledge a Pound this year.

    One final thing, if a rescue closes or is no longer accepting new arrivals (not because they are full) then they will not be eligible to participate - we are sorry but we feel this is only fair to the remaining rescues that are actively running a rescue or sanctuary

    Hiya

    It was received on June 2nd so it's for this month, I hadn't checked all the payments when I posted the thread, so I've just updated it with you on the first post. Thank you for joining Pledge a Pound

    It's only the 5th of June and already we have a total of


    £32.50

    There's also last months money carried over of £37.50


    Which gives a combined total of


    £70.00

    that's almost enough for one rescue already, please keep your donations coming and lets see if we can help 4 rescues again this month

    Just sent mine for June by bank transfer
    also realised I forgot to change the description last month, so the payment I sent at the end of May for May actually said it was for April! sorry for the confusion.

    Can you spare £1 a month to support Pledge A Pound to help lots of rabbit rescues I do.
