A brick can have text only or text and a picture. You can go to *Polar Engraving yourself and look around. Browse through the Symbols & Clipart to see if you would like to add a picture or symbol. There are pictures of cats and pictures of dogs. There are many other pictures and symbols, too. (I used an angel on my sample brick. You can see it in the sidebar.)
If you would like to order a brick, here are the two steps:
1. Email me with your text (and picture if you’re choosing one). Bricks can have one, two, or three lines of text. If you are ordering a text-only brick, each line can have up to 18 characters/spaces. (You can squeeze in up to 20, but 18 or less is recommended for the best look.) Bricks with text and picture can have up to 15 characters/spaces per line.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you receive an acknowledgment back from me. [Our internet provider had to switch email providers – which is still not being recognized by many other email systems. I have a temporary gmail account so watch for an acknowledgment from me either @lazernetwireless or @gmail.]
2. Make your donation. I have a paypal donate button at the top of the sidebar. Or, you can email me and ask for my home address if you prefer to send a check. Donation for a text-only brick is $50. Donation for a text-and-picture brick is $55.
I will collect orders (starting today) October 1 through October 31. Then I will place my order with Polar Engraving. When the bricks arrive here, I will take pictures of them as I have with the previous fundraisers. I should receive the bricks before Christmas. If your brick is a Christmas gift for someone else, I will send you a picture via email of the brick. You can use it in an email holiday greeting, or print off and put in a card or box for the recipient. Of course, I will do the stories behind the bricks again for anyone who wants to send me that information. That will probably happen starting after the holidays.
And now . . . (drumroll) . . . . The Fifth Installment of the Winnie’s Wish Walkway Brick Fundraiser!! Whether you’re getting a brick for a pet still “in the fur”, for a cherished pet who has moved on, to have your blog represented, or as a gift for friend or family, remember this. The Walkway is special. You’ve witnessed through the stories just how treasured those animals are. But there is something else that I don’t want you to lose sight of. Once I pay Polar Engraving and Paypal takes their cut, every penny of donation money helps me keep this rescue going. Your brick order helps SO MUCH!
See you tomorrow.
