Help make World Animal Day 2008 the Biggest and Best Yet!

Dear Friends

Now is the time to start
thinking about how you're going to celebrate World Animal Day this
year to benefit your organisation.

Even if you don't have a lot of spare time, there are plenty of
fundraising / educational ideas on the website that don't take much
organising and, by starting to think about it now you can spread the
workload. Also, if you enlist plenty of help the sky's the limit! It
might be that you already have an event planned that could become a
World Animal Day celebration.

If you haven't yet taken a look at the Roundup of some of the World
Animal Events that took place in 2007 please do so, you'll be
inspired! Please click on the following link which will take you to
the World Events Overview page and from here you can click on links
to Africa, Asia, Australia & NZ, Europe, South America, UK and USA.
At the bottom of each of these pages you will find a link to an
additional image gallery. From the overview page you can also click
on a link that will allow you to view all the events listed with
World Animal Day in 2007, and in previous years.

You will probably be aware that the aim of the World Animal Day
website is to encourage everybody interested in animals to use this
special day to express their love and concern for all creatures by
doing something special in celebration of our relationship with the
animal kingdom. I'm sure you will agree that building the World
Animal Day initiative is a wonderful way to heighten public awareness
of animal issues and unite the animal welfare movement. It's
something that everyone can join in with whether they are part of an
organisation, group, or as an individual.
is full of ideas to inspire visitors into getting involved and
includes everything needed to help organise a successful World Animal
Day event.

I would like to highlight the fact that World Animal Day is not
linked to any one individual, organisation or campaign, but belongs
to everyone. The official World Animal day website was created and is
sponsored by Naturewatch in the UK but the organisation does not
benefit from this in any way, shape or form.

The website features an online `Events Diary' to provide free
publicity to any group or individual who is doing something special
connected with animals on or around 4th October.. During the next few
weeks, the online diary will be going live for 2008 so, as soon as
you have an outline plan, please send a paragraph or two about your
event to be added to the diary. When it's `live' I'll let you know so
you can check your entry and, as plans progress during the lead up to
World Animal Day, your entry can be updated simply by sending me an
email. Organisations that get involved will also be added to the
website list of `Participants'.

After your event has taken place we'd like to give you some extra
publicity. All you need to do is send me a short report about it with
photographs and we will show the world what you have achieved in the
roundup of World Animal Day events.

I look forward to hearing from you very soon and sincerely hope you
decide to get involved this year.

Please help us spread the word about World Animal Day by including
information in a newsletter and/or by creating a website link. Full
instructions for a number of different styles of weblink are
available in the `Resources' section of the website where you will
also find the World Animal Day logo in various formats.

Kind regards
