Other Ways to Help Ahimsa House
1. Join us on Facebook and Twitter, and LinkedIn
This is a powerful way to help spread the word about Ahimsa House!
2. Set Up a "Birthday Wish" on Facebook
If you have a birthday coming up, you can make a "birthday wish" to request donations to Ahimsa House. One of our Board members recently raised over $200 this way! Just go to:
Facebook then automatically updates your status through your birthday to remind people to donate in honor of your birthday and gives a "progress bar" toward your goal and a link on your homepage to your birthday page, where people's donations are recorded and people can post birthday wishes.
When you go through the wizard, you can send a donation request to all your friends or select those whom you want to receive a donation request message.
3. Help Us Spread the Word "Offline" Too
We are a small nonprofit, run almost entirely by volunteers. One of our greatest challenges is making sure everyone in Georgia--both those who need our help, and those who might like to help us--know about Ahimsa House. Could you help us by distributing our brochures and flyers in your community, talking to your vet or doggie daycare about partnering with us, or even just telling a friend? Contact us to find out more.
