PETiTathon2015!: Day Two (St. Nicholas Day)
Welcome to Day 2 of PETiTathon2015!, the Planned Environment Therapy Trust's quick and concise fundraising campaign!
We've intentionally built this campaign around December 6th - St. Nicholas Day - because, in many countries, this is the day that St. Nicholas leaves presents outside doors and in boots and shoes. The idea that sometime today you might open your inbox, or navigate to the website, and find presents from the Trust waiting for you tickles us. See the bottom of this page for the gifts we bring today.
We are also asking for your help, of course.
The Planned Environment Therapy Trust needs to generate upwards of £80,000 annually to maintain and develop the work and services we provide. We do that in a variety of ways, including hiring our rooms and facilities for outside groups, hosting events, encouraging legacies, applying for grants; even selling scrap metal and old furniture. Some of the communities and institutions which have invested their archives here - such as Wennington Old Scholars, the Caldecott Association, and the Mulberry Bush School - give us direct support. And we seek donations. The latter are essential, and, apart from the love of opening up the collections for others to share, is why we bring PETiTathon2015! to you. Your £5, $20, 500 donations - now and throughout the year - make a vital contribution to the work.
But you can also help in other ways:
- You can spread the word about PETT as a venue for trainings, retreats, meetings, events - increase our use.
- You can give us your time. To some extent or other everyone is a volunteer here, even those who are paid, and you will be joining an enthusiastic team.
- Seek sponsorships and raise funds, or share your ideas for same.
- Make use of the unique resources we have here; and let others know how special they are.
