Every year, TAGS organizes a yard sale.
What separates it from other yard sales is the fact that at ours, all your money goes to charity. When you purchase something, keep in mind that it’s going to help sick dogs like Shyla
, and it may even help fund our next trip to pick up a couple of puppy mill dogs
. Everybody wins here–
you get to find great treasures for a reasonable price, and our charity can add some much-needed funds to meet our tight budget. We put a lot of effort into our yard sales, as we know that the only way to get people to spend money is to attract them there! Yard sales are only as popular as the sales they are making, and all we want to do is help the dogs! We put effort into the smallest of details, from ordering all of our items on sale by price and colour, to flying a flag pole high in the sky to flag down visitors and buyers! You can still impress on a budget. All you need is a wooden flag pole
to flag down some worthy visitors, and suddenly the dogs are benefitting. We also like to include food in our yard sales to make sure there is something for everyone. Like we have said, all of the money we raise goes to the dogs, so each sale really does mean the world to us (and the dogs) as a charity.
