As you may know, we are a registered 501(C)3 non-profit and this is our biggest fundraiser. That being said, we have decided to add an alternative way to boost your application’s success in the 2023 Model Call! Create a Facebook Fundraiser and copy in this post:
“I am applying for the 2023 Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc (PFPB) model call this year! Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to educate the public and empower canine advocates through science-based facts in order to lead their communities by representing responsible pet ownership; striving toward all dogs being accepted as individuals.
WE ENCOURAGE YOUR TO ADD YOUR OWN LANGUAGE ABOUT WHY THIS CAUSE MEANS SO MUCH TO YOU.
The three applicants who raise the most ($1000.00 USD minimum) with their fundraiser during the months of the open call (January 23, 2022-April 18th, 2022) get an automatic spot in our 2023 calendar. The date range in consideration will be January 23rd-April 18th, 2022. All donations made before or after will be gratefully accepted, but will not count toward this contest goal. If there is a tie, we will extend the dates until there are clear winners.
All of the other model spots will be chosen from the rest of the applications that were submitted. YOU MUST STILL APPLY THROUGH THE REGULAR APPLICATION PROCESS TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THIS OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL CHANNEL.
If you do not have a Facebook page, this option will not be feasible. You must have an active Facebook page to participate in this optional additional way to solidify your spot in our calendar. If you plan to use a different fundraising tool, please check in with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure that it will work for our planning purposes.
Follow the directions on the pictures below to create your fundraiser (click to enlarge). Be sure to set the end date to April 18th, 2022 at 11:59PM EST and a minimum goal of at least $1000.00 USD. Once your fundraiser is live, you can customize it and share it however you want to boost your funds raised. Share it throughout the months of April through June to increase your fundraising (don’t forget to tag us) and have fun!
This option is to be considered for an AUTOMATIC spot in the 2023 calendar (Model only, Model and Dog, Dog Only options).
The rest of the calendar model spots will be chosen from the remaining applicants as always. All funds raised through the donation fundraising option will be accepted and used to further our mission at Pinups for Pitbulls, so no matter what, you’re helping further our cause and we are forever grateful to you!
