Dog Days: Innovative Fundraiser for Haiti

My friends Kris and Kirsten Schultz-- the same geniuses who brought you the Ping-Pong-a-Thon fundraisers-- are both pet care professionals. Kris emailed me recently and said, "Kirsten and I thought we'd try to put that to use in an effort to help relief efforts in Haiti. So next week, Jan. 25-29, we're accepting appointments for special dog walks, with all proceeds going to the Red Cross."

So here's a way to treat your (unintentionally) neglected pooches to a much-needed walk while simultaneously helping out the folks in Haiti who have been hit so devastatingly hard. All you need to do is email Kris to set up an appointment. One of the sisters will show up to love on your pup. And you can make out a check to "The American Red Cross", with "International Disaster Relief Fund" in the memo line.

And, this just in from the double-your-money department: An anonymous donor has offered to match all donations raised through the dog walks. Here's how to reach Kris:
