Doug the Pug’s Fundraising Snacks: You Won’t Get What You Don’t Ask For

RUFF! I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I am a pug. Pugs like treats. And the way we get treats doesn’t have to involve sneaking up to the table and grabbing your bacon burger (though I do love bacon). It’s actually through smiling, wagging our tails, and making some happy noise.

So, make a little happy noise–tell people about the progress their donations made possible–and then ask, ask, ask.

People will take notice. They will give. And heck, they might even get you a new doggie blanket.

Sincerely,

Doug

P.S. Please email me some bacon.

Doug the Pug’s Fundraising Snacks: Send a “Please support me” email blast on Friday.

RUFF! My human friend, J.R. Burwell, tells you why Fridays are the best day to send a request (and not just nap until noon):

“Send it first thing on a Friday morning (PAYDAY) and then follow it up with another the following Friday. Wait a couple of weeks and then repeat the process. Many people will respond to the very first email but others may need a few reminders before they donate.”

Thank you, J.R. I can’t wait to see your Ming the Merciless beard at Bike MS (and please bring plenty of treats. I heart treats.).

Sincerely, 

Doug
