“The definition of mediocre is ordinary, common, or average. That accurately describes how many of us draw. With that in mind, our Giving Tuesday event was appropriately named Mediocre Pet Portraits,” said Nora Vondrell, CEO and President of SICSA Pet Adoption and Wellness Center (SICSA). “No one thinks of their pets as ordinary, but for a minimum donation of $10 to SICSA on Giving Tuesday, we’ll provide a Mediocre Pet Portrait of their pet.”
The Mediocre Pet Portrait event will take place on Giving Tuesday, November 29, 2022. Giving Tuesday is a global movement unleashing the power of generosity that encourages people to give to or collaborate with charitable organizations. Members of the public can participate in Mediocre Pet Portraits through SICSA’s Facebook Fundraiser page where they will be able to provide their donation and then upload a photo of their pet in the comments section. Later that day, the completed mediocre pet portraits will be uploaded into a Giving Tuesday Mediocre Pet Portraits Photo Album on SICSA’s Facebook page.
“Local SICSA supporters and volunteers have signed up to help us draw all the portraits,” stated Vondrell. “Last year we had close to 30 people drawing more than 300 portraits in this fun event!” At the conclusion of the event, people may pick up their completed drawings from SICSA’s Adoption Lobby during business hours. SICSA is located at 8172 Washington Church Road, Dayton, OH 45458. The fundraiser can be found online at facebook.com/sicsapets.
