Saturday, May 22nd is the annual Nevada Humane Society's Walk for Animals, being held at the Sparks Marina with registration starting at 8:00am. A handful of members have already RSVP'd for this event
, and I'd like to encourage those of you who support the Nevada Humane Society to come out and join us in participating in their annual event.
In sponsoring this event, I have set up a donation page through Firstgiving, the donation processing service that the Nevada Humane Society recommends:http://www.firstgiving.com/renofreethinkers
You may join our walking team by clicking on the "Join this team" link on the right. If you'd like to donate, or know of others who would like to donate, you can use the "Sponsor me now" button.
The Nevada Humane Society is giving away prizes at certain donation levels, including an iPod of some sort (donated by Walmart) at our modest goal of $250. Any prizes given to us due to our donation will be given away at an upcoming Meetup event
. Through Firstgiving, neither I, nor anyone from Reno Freethinkers will manage the donated money, and it will go directly to the Nevada Humane Society with our group's name attached.
As with all of our volunteer efforts, your attendance or support isn't required or expected in any degree. It is, however, greatly appreciated, and I would like to thank everyone who has been helping out with the volunteer events which Justyne's put together for us over the past few weeks, as well as everyone who plans on making it out to some of these efforts in the future.
Thank you all!
