Some CorgiAid History!

.
In 2008, CorgiAid was chosen the very best breed rescue fundraising program by Pedigree, one of the Westminster Dog Show sponsors.  The company wanted to give CorgiAid an award, but they also wanted to make a video of how CorgiAid works and how it raises money to help homeless dogs. They wanted to visit
“CorgiAid's office" which does not exist!

 All the CorgiAid staff are volunteers. Everybody works from home and are spread out all over the country. Then they wanted to make a video of how CorgiAid raises money. But CorgiAid funds are raised by hundreds and hundreds of people called CorgiAid Angels who are also all over the country. 

The CorgiAid staff thought about what the cameramen could film. They said it was a shame no picnics were being held in January. Susie in Tennessee said, "It would take a nut to put on a picnic in January. It would be a Polar Bear Picnic."


There were only 17 days from the time they announced the award to when the film crew arrived but even with film-making, CorgiAid comes through.  This video is Susie’s account of The CorgiAid Polar Bear Picnic.
 
 

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!
