PowerPoint Presentation – Special Offer!

20 Slide PowerPoint Presentation for £25As mentioned in a previous blog post, I support Kim’s Home Dog Rescue who are based in Cardiff.

Bi-annually I run their online auctions to raise funds for dogs in their care and dogs needing a rescue space.

This involves sending out emails to supporters asking for donations and collating all that information as it comes in.

Then, after creating an online catalogue, I run the auction for one week on Facebook.

The really hard work starts at the end of the auction.  Co-ordinating payments in and making sure that donators send the right items out to the right people.  We usually receive around 240 items so this is a mammoth task!

I am also going to offer a 20 Slide PowerPoint Presentation for £25, four times a year.  The £25 will be donated to Kim’s Home.   A presentation of that size would usually cost between £35 – £50, so this is a real bargain, as well as helping a very worthwhile cause.

If you would like to take advantage of this deal, please go to my Facebook Page.  The first to comment on the promotional thread, receives this special offer.

Why I Support Kim’s Home For Elderly/Abused Dogs

Why I support Kim's Home For Elderly/Abused DogsAs I have mentioned on my About Page, I’ve always been a dog lover and in particular sighthound lover. Lurchers and Greyhounds in particular are extremely overbred and mistreated in the UK which is why there is a need for so many breed specific rescues.

I first met Wendy from Kim’s Home Dog Rescue in 2000 on a Yahoo Lurcher Group (Yahoo Groups! Remember those?!). She had 8 dogs then, all rescue, mainly Salukis. We hit it off straight away and her Salukis were instrumental in road testing my Sighthound Specific Dog Coats that I designed a couple of years later.

EdieFast forward a few years and Wendy was running her own dog rescue ‘Kim’s Home for Elderly/Abused Dogs’ and in 2008 when I had decided I would like another little lurcher, Wendy had just the dog i was looking for. Edie, a Whippet x Saluki, came to live with me in April 2008 and has been a dream dog from the get-go. She inspired me to write a book to raise money for Kim’s Home which then led onto me organising the bi-annual fundraisers which started in 2015.
