Carpet Diem! Seize the day! We need help of all sorts and if you’re more of a “make-and-do” sort of person there are plenty of ways to help.
Our supporters are nothing if not inventive and come up with all sorts of hair-brained schemes to help us raise funds. Below you will find one of our charity videos – 500 Miles by the Proclaimers. We were delighted that Craig and Charlie Reid of the Proclaimers gave us their personal permission to use their track. Our supporters each got a few lyrics to sing to their dogs, video’d it and sent it in to us here at Ridgeback Rescue. The video was then pulled together with people not just here in the UK, but also as far away as Australia.
The final product was amazing – it was fun and you could see the love that our supporters really have for their furry companions. Each person paid £5 to be in the video and when complete, it was then sold across the globe raising well over a thousand pounds.
We will be doing more videos in the future so if you think you’d like to be involved in one too, or perhaps are a ROCK STAR reading this thinking “hell, I’d love them to use a track of ours”, then please do get in touch.
