A Letter from My Assistant Ratdog RE: Looking for Yuckfest Volunteers
Every year, my master Ed (aka "Hymie") produces a comedy benefit at Rooster T. Feathers in Sunnyvale called "The Yuletide Yuckfest" It's a fun event that raises toys and $$ for Toys for Tots, which is a great charity run by the Marines. When Ed was looking for a charity to raise $$ for, he chose TFT because when you give them a toy, it goes to a child. With a lot of charities, as much as 90% of the $$ they receive can go to the administration and the day-to-day operation of the charity. The people it's supposed to be helping can end up getting very little. The reason for this posting is that Ed is looking for people to help him with the event. This may involve phonework, passing out flyers or helping out at the event itself, which is always in early December. As Ed's assistant I am supposed to bite anyone who has a "bah humbug" attitude and doesn't want to go with the program. It's a fun way to help kids out during the holidays, because I don't care who you are, we've all at one time or another been kids (or pups) during the holidays. I remember one Christmas when I was about six weeks, my brothers and sisters and I got up at 3 am to open our gifts. Boy, were we ever in the doghouse for that one. Please e-mail Ed, my master at: firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested. And please put in a good word for me, Ratdog. Do you know how hard it is to type with claws?
Ed's personal assistant,
If you want a great personal assistant that can type, make coffee and bark/growl at people when they don't do what you want them to do, visit: www.monster.com or www.craigslist.com and look under "Canine Assistants."
