Brews for Barks, Pics for Pups

Here is something doubly near and dear to my heart as it deals with dogs and suds.

New Belgium Brewing is helping raise funds for a local dog orgnization. They are donating $1 for every photo of a dog shared on their Facebook page.

They are doing this in conjunction with their Might Arrow Pale Ale which has a picture of a dog on it (seen to the left), which turns out to be Arrow the border collie (my favorite breed other than mutts).  They want to raise $10,000 and are currently at 6,527.

Here is more information from their Community blog.

Only two weeks remain in the ol’-Mighty Arrow-Facebook-dog-picture-uploading-extravaganza/ contest-of-real-Fun-and-beauty-and-benefit.  In tandem (ahem… a bike joke) with Outside magazine, the New Belgium Brewing Company is trying to raise some money for deserving doggies who can’t very well hold their own Facebook contests.  We are asking you fine peoples of the world to crack a couple of beers (maybe a couple of Mighty Arrows (who knows), they are perfect for the spring time of year (just saying)) and break out that camera, start snapping those oh-so-cutesy photos of your favorite, four-legged friends, then upload them over at the Mighty Arrow tab on NBB’s (or Outside’s) Facebook page.  Go ahead, you have (literally) nothing to lose and those little fuzz-balls have so much to gain.  Every photo you upload has a corresponding $1 dollar donation attached to it, ready to benefit some great, local poochie groups (up to 10,000 bucks) and right now there is lots of room left for more donating.  So get after it, get to photo snapping and to uploading, and together we can do some good, all the while sipping on some great beer (you know… Mighty Arrow… mmmmmmm).


So snap a pic of your pup and post it.
