Treats & Sweets Day is the yummiest fundraising event of the year to raise funds in support of Pet Partners. For Treats & Sweets Day, bakers from across the United States will invite their friends and family to support Pet Partners by making donations and attending Treats & Sweets Day parties and bake sales. The donations raised will help to honor and support therapy animals, and will help to enhance the lives of the over one million humans a year who are benefiting from Pet Partners therapy animal visits.
By setting up an individual fundraising page, or Online Bakery, you will be able to efficiently spread the word to friends and family about your Treats & Sweets Day event, manage your fundraising, and raise vital awareness about the role therapy animals play in enhancing the health and well being of humans.
Many people will choose to host their sale on April 30, 2017 in celebration of National Therapy Animal Day™, but you can pick any day during the month of April that works for you and your sweet toothed customers.
There are many ways to participate in Treats & Sweets Day without having to bake. You could partner with a local bakery or pet bakery and provide their treats to your supporters. Something as simple as having a Donut Day at your office where you bring in a few dozen donuts you have purchased from your favorite shop and accept donations will help Pet Partners!
Your personal fundraising page allows you to ask friends and family for donations in a virtual way. Additionally, you could form a Treats & Sweets Day team and recruit a friend who does love to bake. You could spend your time promoting the event and attracting donors while your baking pal focuses on the culinary creations!
Treats & Sweets Day is a chance to bake and sell human treats, animal treats or both! Some folks may spend time baking healthy pet treats to package and sell, some will put all their efforts towards creating delicious people pleasing snacks, and some will bake both. Make Treats & Sweets Day your own special celebration of therapy animals and the humans they help!
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Pet Partners relies on donations from individuals, companies and foundations in order to support our life-changing work. The funds you raise through Treats & Sweets Day will be put to work to improve people's lives through the help of our animal companions.
Pet Partners is the national non-profit leader in demonstrating and promoting positive human-animal therapy, activities and interactions. Pet Partners has over 15,500 registered therapy animal teams who make visits across the United States. Pet Partners trains and evaluates teams across the nation so they may safely and responsibly visit with a variety of people including veterans, seniors living with Alzheimer’s, patients in recovery, students facing literacy challenges, people with intellectual or physical disabilities, and those approaching end of life. The impact of these visits is felt over three million times a year.
Nearly forty years since the organization’s inception, the science that proves these benefits has become indisputable. Pet Partners’ curriculum and continuing education for licensed instructors, evaluators and handlers remains the gold standard in the field.
