If you can’t give cash, how about stuff?

As many Facebook friends and Twitter followers know, I’m actively involved with the American Cancer Society. Right now, I’m helping my friend Jodie with the Bark For Life of Cranberry event. It’s planned for May 21.

I’ve asked friends to donate $10 (or more if they could). Consider how much you spent on lunch today and donate that. Or buy two less drinks at the bar tonight. Or one less appetizer at dinner!

But… if you can’t afford to give money, what about stuff?

Part of the event includes raffle baskets filled with all sorts of goodies — Bocktown gift cards, Pittsburgh Zoo passes and so much more! Is there something you could offer up for a raffle basket?

  • Pens, Steelers, Pirates, Power tickets?
  • Theater tickets?
  • T-shirts?
  • Gift cards?
Anything! If so, please let me know. I’d be more than happy to talk with you about how your donation is making a difference, and specifically about the Bark For Life of Cranberry event.
