Walk for SPIN

Sunday June 7, 2020

On Sunday June 7th, SPIN is holding its first ever Virtual Walk for SPIN. Lace up those walking shoes and hit the street/road/ treadmill/yard/park and walk to raise funds for all our SPIN pups! You can walk individually or with your family - according to local social distancing requirements of course.  Normally our fundraiser is a 5 km walk. But if you cannot do a 5 km walk, commit to a shorter distance or a certain number of laps around your yard.

It’s easy to participate with no registration fee and no minimum donation or distance. We’ll provide tips to help you fundraise and when it comes time for the walk, we invite you to complete your walk in true poodle style: however you want! A trail walk with your pet, a solo run, a traveling interpretive dance... whatever makes you happy! Show us and your supporters how you put your SPIN on it!

We’re excited for this new type of fundraiser. We hope you’ll join us.  The great thing about a Virtual Walk is that ANYone, ANYwhere can take part ANYway they like! Wouldn't it be AMAZING to see people from all over Canada walking, running, prancing, skipping maybe even SPINNING!!! for SPIN!

All the details are on our Walk for SPIN website.  Check it out!

Lots of love and curls,
SPIN

EASY FUNDRAISING FOR SPIN!

SPIN has a way to raise funds just by shopping on line.  Just do one little extra step prior to your regular on-line shopping, and SPIN will make money.  At no cost to you!  If you buy a gift card, you get a gift card for the exact amount that you pay - you do not pay extra and no funds are taken off.  If you buy an item, you pay only the item's cost.  It starts with our fundraising page, and goes from there.  Below explains various options on how to use the link:  (https://www.flipgive.com/…/162062-standard-poodles-in-…/home)

Option 1)  Eating Out. 

Will you be eating out as the holidays approach? I know I will. If you plan in advance to pay with a gift card purchased through our fundraising site, SPIN gets funds donated and you don't pay anything extra! The Ultimate dining card gives back 7% (valid at Swiss Chalet, Kelsey's, Montana's, East Side Mario's, and many more locations).  Jack Astor's gives back 10%.  The Keg gives back 5%.   So ... if you buy a $100 gift card at Jack Astor's, SPIN will get $10.  AMAZING!  Others are available too, including the Keg and Starbucks!!  To buy a gift card and get funds to SPIN, go to our fundraising page (https://www.flipgive.com/…/162062-standard-poodles-in-…/home) and then navigate to the gift cards (click Browse then click Gift Cards). Once you purchase, voila, SPIN gets a donation. And you get a gift card valued for the amount that you spent on it! No deductions!

Option 2) Shopping Gift Cards! 

Are you going to be doing online shopping for Black Friday or the upcoming holidays? If so, how about purchasing a gift card through SPIN's fundraiser site and then paying with the gift card? It requires NO EXTRA SPENDING on your part, and can give up to 20% of the value of the card to SPIN. You just have to be organized enough to get the card first!  To buy a gift card and get funds to SPIN, go to our fundraising page (https://www.flipgive.com/…/162062-standard-poodles-in-…/home) and then navigate to the gift cards (click Browse then click Gift Cards). Once you purchase, voila, SPIN gets a donation. And you get a gift card valued for the amount that you spent on it! No deductions!

Option 3) Shopping On Line! 

You can also use the page to navigate to many major retailers such as Amazon, Indigo, Under Armour, Expedia, Air Canada, etc..  To use this option, first go to the fundraising page (https://www.flipgive.com/…/162062-standard-poodles-in-…/home).  Then search for or otherwise navigate to the store you want to shop at.  Click the link and that store's website will open.  Log in to your store account if needed.  Do your shopping, and after the purchase, SPIN will get a percentage back (actual percentage depends on the retailer and what is purchased).  Note that in some instances, you have to start from scratch to find things - for Amazon, for example, items in your "Saved for Later" or already in your cart, will not earn funds for SPIN.  AND if you pay for your order with a gift card you purchased under option 2, SPIN gets money twice - once for the card purchase and once for the item purchase.  WIN WIN!
