Buy a pet-lover T-shirt, help rescue an animal. Golden Belt Humane Society is offering this doggone great opportunity through its “Adopt A Pet” fundraising campaign that runs through June 30.
The T-shirts are created by Rosewood Saturdays T-Shirts, a T-shirt line offered through Rosewood Roots & Wings Foundation as an initiative designed to support charitable causes and to create opportunities for people with disabilities. Up to 40 percent of each sale made through the Humane Society’s campaign will be donated to the local animal shelter.
“We’ve done T-shirt fundraisers before, but we have never really pushed for online sales in this capacity through Facebook. We are very interested to see how this develops and to see how much of an impact social media plays for this kind of fundraiser,” said Heather Acheson, director of Golden Belt Humane Society.
People have the option to purchase T-shirts for the fundraiser by going to Rosewood Bargain Barn, 1215 Main Street, Great Bend. They can also order online at rwsaturdaystshirts.com. People can also link up to the campaign on Facebook through Golden Belt Humane Society facebook.com/gbhumanesociety, or through Rosewood Bargain Barn, facebook.com/rwbargainbarn.
The Golden Belt Humane Society is an organization dedicated to animal welfare that provides temporary housing and medical care to unwanted and stray animals. The organization’s mission includes the placement of animals by adoption or by networking with rescues.
The shirts were promoted during the June Jaunt Fashion Show, which took place June 1 at the band shell in Jack Kilby Square. Now, the fundraiser carries forward at the Bargain Barn and online.
