We are pleased to have a wonderful relationship with the Mississauga Humane Society. As attendees, you have raised over $18,000 for the MHS over the last four years, and we are very eager to add to that total this year!
For those that aren't aware, a few words on our charity: for fifteen years, the Mississauga Humane Society's goal and mandate has been to find "Forever Homes" for cats and dogs regardless of their background, age, health or previous behavioural issues. Unlike many other humane societies, they have no dedicated office or overhead. All animals are cared for by volunteer foster owners, and all of their donations go towards food, veterinary bills and other expenses.
We'll be running the Charity Auction throughout the convention in support of the MHS, culminating in the voice auction on Sunday afternoon. So please consider donating an item! We particularly like artwork and costume pieces and commissions, but any other special items are welcome too. You can e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with details, and drop them off in the art show room on Friday.
If you have any other fundraising ideas that you'd like to run at the convention, please let us know at the same address! Just about anything is welcome as long as you run it by us first.
And for everyone else, please consider saving a few dollars for our charity auction on Sunday afternoon and bidding on an item or two. Would you say no to those cute faces?
