K9 Kokua’s Groupon Grassroots Campaign Launches Today!

 
 
Aloha K9 Kokua Ohana, friends and fellow dog-lovers,
 
The big day has arrived—our Groupon Grassroots campaign launched today and here is the direct link: http://www.groupon.com/deals/k9-kokua!
 
Our campagin, “Beds for BowWows”, will be aiming to provide orthopedic beds to dogs in need. If 30 people each donate $10, we can purchase 3 orthopedic beds for some needy and deserving dogs.
 
If our campaign is successful, Sarah, an 11 year old love bug who is her houseless owner’s constant companion will receive a bed! Sarah literally lives on the side of a busy highway and has trouble with arthritis. A bed for this loyal gal would make her days more comfortable (we have attached Sarah’s photo). Any money raised after we meet our goal will go towards medical bills for the dogs that we serve.

Here’s what you can do to help out right now:

1. Go to the campaign page http://www.groupon.com/deals/k9-kokua to donate and help us reach our goal.
 

2. Share the Beds for BowWows campaign and progress on your Facebook and Twitter, as well as email to your dog-loving friends.

Sarah

 Again, we thank you so much for your support!

Malama Pono,
