Thank you to our sponsors:
Montreal Dog Blog and Guardian’s Best are inviting you to be a part of an exciting fundraiser for Montreal rescues!
We’re gonna make a calendar…
An awesome one.
It’s gonna be FREE to the public. YOU’RE gonna be in it.
And it’s gonna make cash for local rescues!
BE A SPONSOR!
You have the opportunity to:
Purchase one of 12 months (Want a specific month that means something to you? It’s first come first serve for this first year!).
Have one of our professional photographers come to your place of business and take a hi-res, aesthetically-rockin’ image to show you off!
Ideally we’d love a photo of your pet or you AND your pet! But, if you want to get creative, you could hold a contest with your clients and feature them and their pets on your calendar page! Sky’s the limit! We’ll give you lots of free copies to hand out, so you can give your customers a lasting, meaningful keepsake. 🙂
Your full-page month will be divided with the photo being 2/3 or 3/4 of the page. And the rest will be your logo/ad (provided by you). See calendar specs below.
COST: $800 (100 % tax deductible as a business expense).
Purchase a smaller banner ad (we’ll ensure it doesn’t compete with another business on that particular month). The artwork must be provided by you.
COST: $200 (100 % tax deductible as a business expense)
3000 professional copies of this calendar will be distributed throughout Montreal (a stack will be made available to give away in your place of business). They will be 100% free to anyone who wants one!
NEW! Wanna be a cover model? In the interest of raising as much money as we can for charity, we are now offering up the front and back calendar covers for $950/each.
But that’s not all:
THE AWARDS CEREMONY
At the end of the year (we’re aiming for November), all sponsors are invited to a fabulous Awards Ceremony featuring delicious appies, media and local celebs: (MC’d by local radio host and creator of Montreal Dog Blog, Nat Lauzon).
We’ll learn about and recognize a “Rescue Group of the Year” and present that rescue with a nice fat check derived from your ad buys! Excluding the marginal portion of funds that will go to the calendar publishing, space rental, etc: this will leave a ton of cash that we will be proud to hand over on your behalf.
For those who’ve purchased the larger monthly buy, you will have your photo taken with the rescue group you helped support – and get sent some professional files after the event. Yours to keep/frame/etc! (the rest of the event will consist of ‘candids’ that we will share on our website afterwards).
THE CALENDAR SPECS
Here are the proportions for the calendar spaces (click to enlarge). Graphic artwork is provided by you (professional photos, if applicable, are taken by us).
The artwork must be high-resolution, 300dpi and our specs below.
The first image represents the large ad buy for $800. Your custom photo will occupy most of the space, along with room for your graphic ad.
The second image below represents the $200 banner ad (lower right). The ad seen on the bottom left will be a free ad for a local rescue.
So, what do ya say? Want to be a part of an exciting philanthropic event in your own city? You can be a trailblazer in our inaugural calendar year – and help effect change in Montreal! Animal Rescues are tireless, unsung heroes and work especially hard in this city. With your help, we can create a legacy that supports and recognizes them year after year.
