We are excited that the 2014 DockDogs® season is underway. The B.A.A.R.K. Foundation has spent the past few months brainstorming fundraising ideas to introduce & implement this year!
Since the B.A.A.R.K. Foundation was originally conceived in order to help members of the DockDogs® community in times of need, and the DockDogs® community has been shown overwhelming support from the B.A.A.R.K. Foundation over the years; this year we wanted to really show off how connected we all are and to reinforce that in struggling times and hardships, that you have someone here to lean on. Or in our case, an entire nationwide community!
For the 2014 season, we want to build a Caring Chain. Our Caring Chain will represent those we have loved & lost, those we love currently and want to recognize, and those who we wish to send love to overseas and at home. A custom message can be written on each link, dedicating the link to someone special. Friends, family, and spectators can purchase a chain link for $1.00 per link and the links will be connected and displayed at that current event. But that’s not all……… At the DockDogs® 2014 World Championship event, we will connect all of the Caring chains we have collected from the various 2014 DockDogs® events and display our Grand Caring Chain proudly, for everyone to see. Proceeds from each link will go to the B.A.A.R.K. Foundation to help DockDogs® members in need.
The links are available for clubs to purchase and sell at events throughout the 2014 DockDogs® Season. Please contact Teresa from the DockDogs® office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Links will be sold in bulk and arrive with the DockDogs Admin at your event. Please encourage your club members to sell the links. It may help to have a volunteer head up the operation so that your club members have a go-to person for questions or to obtain more links. The links and money can be turned into the DockDogs® administration person at the end of your event and will be forwarded to the B.A.A.R.K. Foundation on the Club’s behalf.
As a special thanks, the DockDogs® Club that sells the most links this year will be rewarded with their affiliation fees for 2015 paid in full by DockDogs® Worldwide. So rally your club members and show everyone how much you care about your friends, families and fellow DockDoggers!
Help us build a chain that stretches beyond our imagination, showing those that you love – human and furpanion alike – just how special they are to you; and in doing so you will be supporting the efforts of the B.A.A.R.K. Foundation in its mission to help those in need within the DockDogs® community.
