New Year Resolutions - how you can help improve rabbit welfare.



Please make one of your New Year resolutions helping to improve rabbit welfare.

What is your New Year resolution? Losing weight? Giving up Smoking? Going to the gym more often? Please make one resolution that is easy to keep and help us to improve rabbit welfare, here are some of the ways you can help us:

Please join The Rabbit Welfare Association (or make sure you renew your membership)
Our membership is our main source of income, so if you love rabbits, please join or ensure you renew your membership when the time comes. Members receive a copy of our fantastic quarterly magazine and help us fund many projects such as our campaigning work, the helpline which is open 365 days a year and leaflet production and distribution.

To join follow this link:
http://www.rabbitwelfare.co.uk/join/index.php

If you already a member (thank you) please sign up to pay by standing order, or world pay recurring payment, so that we can save admin costs on renewal notices and you can be certain never to miss an issue of Rabbiting On.


Use 'every click' as your search engine
It’s powered by Yahoo and you can raise money for rabbit welfare simply by browsing the web! It won’t cost you a penny and it's really easy to use.
More details are here:

Use ' easy fundraising' for shopping.
You still shop directly with each retailer as you would normally, but simply by using the links from our site first, each purchase you make will generate a cashback donation to the cause you wish to support.

For example, spend £25 with WH Smith and 3.5% will be donated. You will have raised £0.88, at no extra cost to your purchase. Make any purchase from Amazon and 2.5% will be donated. Insure your car with Direct Line and raise £35.00, or purchase a mobile phone from O2 and earn £17.50, and so on.

You can shop with 2000+ Brand Name retailers and to raise funds you just use the links from our site first - it's that simple!

You can support us by joining via this link:

Please register and share this link and (perhaps in your e-mail signature) and encourage others to support us too. You can also 'like' the page via facebook and share it to your wall. This will help raise awareness of the charity and our message.

Use our 'cruel' image in your e-mail signature or as your avatar on facebook.
Help us spread the message that 'a hutch is not enough' If everyone used this image as their avatar, or in their e-mails even just for the rest of this month it would really help to raise awareness of the campaign and the website where people can find loads of information on how best to look after their rabbits.

Ask for a free car sticker!
Please get in touch and we will be happy to send you a free ' a hutch is not enough' car sticker, or you may be able persuade your local Vet, Pet Shop or School to put one in their window. It will all help to help us drum our message that 'a hutch is not enough'

Ask for some leaflets.
Most of us have probably encountered a friend, neighbour or work mate that has a single rabbit kept in a hutch in the garden. We know this isn't how rabbits should be kept and you might lose sleep thinking about the poor bun, but it can be awkward to approach the subject. Why not ask for a bundle of our leaflets to pass to them instead, and let them do the talking. You could always say you have read them and they may find them interesting to avoid making it confrontational.

Order flowers from Charity Flowers
And we will receive 15% of the total spent.

Send us your used stamps:

The RWAF team would like to wish you and your bunnies all a happy and healthy 2011, and thank you for supporting us.

Alan, Anne, Lizzie & Rae.
