Does your idea of a perfect Saturday morning consist of hanging on the couch watching cartoons?
Do you have a hard time waking up before 11 a.m.?
If so, meet Ruckus, team captain of The Couch Potatoes.
Ruckus is home on the couch even though his friends woke up bright and early this morning to go to PAWSwalk at Magnuson Park.
Ruckus is no athlete, but as a former shelter dog he still wants to help the animals at PAWS find their forever homes. That’s why he started The Couch Potatoes – a team for all of us who want to support PAWSwalk, but don’t want to change out of our PJs. Together we can raise money to feed, shelter, and provide medical care to more than 6,000 animals this year without leaving our living rooms!
It’s so easy! You can either donate to The Couch Potatoes, or sign up to be a member of the team. As a team member, you can ask friends who didn’t make it to PAWSwalk to donate to help injured, orphaned, and homeless animals in our community. With your help, The Couch Potatoes hope to raise $1,000 for the animals at PAWS. To see how your donations help the animals at PAWS, watch this video.
There are PRIZES too! Anyone who donates to The Couch Potatoes PAWSwalk team page on Saturday, September 10 will be entered in a drawing to win a PAWS 2012 Calendar (hot off the press), and the top fundraiser or donor will win an awesome PAWS T-shirt. If The Couch Potatoes reach their goal of $1,000, everyone who donated to the team will be entered in a drawing to win a PAWS T-shirt. We’ll be announcing more prizes and contests throughout the day, so be sure to follow along on Facebook.
So even if you can’t put down the remote, you can still lend a hand. Go to PAWSwalk.net/couchpotatoes and join Ruckus to raise money for the animals at PAWS. You can donate online or click “Join Our Team” on The Couch Potato page to join the team.
Thank you for being a champion for animals!
