It’s been 3 weeks since our big announcement and boy has it been fun! We continue to get an influx of positive, supportive, and enthusiastic messages and the donations just keep rolling in. We couldn’t be happier! A lot is going on behind the scenes. The faster and harder we work, the sooner we can open and start saving animals. This is our #1 goal.
Our first fundraiser is quickly approaching, which we are also thrilled about. If you haven’t heard yet, we will be hosting a trivia fundraiser at Lush in Minneapolis on Sunday February 19th from 5:30-8:30 pm. It will be tons of fun and there will be some raffle and trivia prizes so who wouldn’t want in on that?!? Lush also has brand new vegan options on their menu, great drinks, and wonderful staff! We have been busy planning other fundraisers as well. We will be having a dinner hosted by The Herbivorous Butcher in April that people can purchase tickets for, an eco-friendly fashion show at Bauhaus on June 13th, karaoke in August, and our Gala in October! There are still a lot of details that need to be ironed out for all of these fundraisers, but we are taking it step by step to make sure that we have some fantastic events for our supporters to attend.
We continue to get messages everyday of people asking how they can help and there are so many ways to do so. First and foremost- tell everyone you know and subscribe to our newsletter on our website (this is free after all!). Share our website, social media accounts, and fundraiser events with everyone and anyone (also free!). If you can, consider donating on our website(one-time or recurring). We have some fabulous donor rewards if you donate today on our website. If you know of someone who has land or you have acreage to spare as a donation, let us know. If its supplies you would like to donate, we have a wish list on our website. If you have some special skills that you would like to donate, feel free to contact us. We have a lot of planning and work to do. The more help we can get, the better!
Herbivorous Acres relies solely on donations so we really can’t do this without your help! There are so many aspects of our plan that we can’t wait to see materialize. Please know that we are working day and night to get Herbivorous Acres up and running. In the meantime, come hang out, play some trivia, say hello, and celebrate with us at Lush on February 19th. Stay tuned for more updates and again- thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
