We realize that it has been a while since we have posted to our blog. We apologize for taking so long to get back to it, especially since the busiest months are ahead of us. We have a lot to share with you. #1: We have sent letters and newsletters telling you all about our upcoming contest: Tibe Fan Club Best Pet Ever - Not Contest. Tibe (Tiberius) belongs to Jim and Suzanne Faustlin, the owners of The Maids of Tucson. One day Tibe found the bathroom open and the toilet paper just sitting on the roll alone and unsupervised. He began to wonder how many rolls it would take to get to the center of that toilet paper! Luckily, Jim was home and was able to catch Tibe in his quest to find the secrets at the center of the toilet paper roll, and he was able to snap some pictures for us.
Through Tibe's inspiration, we are inviting all of our current customers to send us pictures of their pets at their very best (or worst, as the case may be). As we receive the pictures, they will be posted on this blog site for people to vote. The contest rules are as follows:
- Voting begins October 1st, 2011 as early as 12:00 am
- Voting closes October 31st, 2011 at 11:59 pm
- Pictures can be submitted via email to email@example.com or to our facebook page @ http://www.facebook.com/themaidstucson
- Anyone can vote -- So invite your friends and family to come and vote for you
- Because not all of our customers have access to facebook, all voting will be done on this blog page
- The winner of this contest will receive 1 free cleaning and their pet will be featured on our facebook page as our profile picture for 1 week. We will also feature our runner-up in a single post.
We are very excited about this contest and look forward to seeing how mischievous and adorable our Tucson pets are.
#2: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer : We are working towards a goal of raising $2500 this year. Last year we were just short of our $2000 goal, and we want to do better this year. We will be hosting a car wash on October 8th at our office (4425 E. Broadway Blvd.) to collect donations. All donations collected go directly to Making Strides Against Breast Cancer & The American Cancer Society. This charity means so much to us because 60% of the funds raised stay in Tucson to help our community. We have all had someone in our lives who has been affected by some form of cancer. Because of this, we are driven to help.
If you would like to help us, please visit our team page at maidsoftucson
to make a donation or join our team. We are very gracious to each of you for helping us. We hope to see you on October 8th for our car wash. Thank you!
#3: As you may have noticed, we are making a point of getting involved in our community. This year, for the months of July and August, we collected a portion of each clean and set it aside for donation. We chose five local charities that mean a great deal to us: Ben's Bells Project, The Southern Arizona Humane Society, The Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Because of our wonderful customers, we were able to donate $2,469.73 between the five charities.
#4: Our final bit of current news - On facebook, we are holding a contest for a free cleaning. You must have a facebook account in order to participate in this contest. All you need to do is 'like' our page. In the events listed, there are rules for participating in this contest. You must live within our service area (zip codes are listed on the event page) to be considered for winning. Post positive comments and 'likes' to earn entries. Each new post is a new entry. The contest closes on November 23rd and the person with the most 'likes'/comments will win the free clean. The winner will be chosen on November 28th and notified shortly after.
Thank you all for all that you do. We are proud to be serving you and we look forward to the things to come. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office anytime at 520-795-7977 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you again from all of us at The Maids.
