Get Schooled in a Cause for Paws: GSU Students Take Action!

From May through December, the Green Market at Piedmont Park in Atlanta means lots of locally grown farm-fresh produce, baked goods and other special goodies.  Cosmo and I love to chat with the local farmers and merchants, listen to live music and enjoy some fresh treats along the dogwood-lined streets. 
Today we had the pleasure of meeting an ambitious group of students from Georgia State University, who have turned a school assignment into a worthy cause.
They call their project Panthers for Paws, and as part of a class requirement they are raising money for the charity of their choice.  The group of students who call themselves The Pawsitives selected PAWS Atlanta, a no-kill animal shelter dedicated to providing care and shelter to homeless dogs and cats until they find their forever homes. 

As one the requirements for their Managing People in
Organizations class, this group of Georgia State students
is raising money for the charity of their choice.
The Pawsitives were manning a booth in Piedmont Park today to help raise money for PAWS Atlanta and generate awareness for an event later this week that they hope will help them achieve their fundraising goal.
Since we love to see students learn by applying what they learn in the classroom to real-life situations, we want to spread the word in hopes more people will attend the Panthers for Paws event at Sutra Lounge in Atlanta. 
While I couldn't resist providing a quick lesson in driving donations using social media, you'll need to show up to this event in person. 

WHEN: Thursday, November 11 --  7 - 10 p.m.
WHERE: Sutra Lounge, 1136 Crescent Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA
DONATIONS: Cover charge of $5.00 will be donated to PAWS Atlanta. There will be beer specials as well as a raffle for wonderful door prizes donated by the community.


Cosmo says, "give these kids a 'High Paw' for their effort!" And if they don't already know it, they'll learn that tapping into the passionate pet community is an excellent way to learn how to rally people and organizations to meet a goal. 
If you can't make it to the event and you'd like to donate to PAWS Atlanta, there are plenty of ways to donate here. I bet if you mention The Pawsitives, the kids may even get some extra credit for their project!

And now, since it's Saturday, let's go to The Hop!
