Specialty Checks?

Postby emily kates mom » Fri Apr 01, 2005 08:06 am

If this idea has already been submitted, please forgive me...

What about specialty checks? I know that alot of people like getting checks that "fit them" or help a cause dear to them... Checks seem to be a way to express yourself. For example, my checks now support Feed the Children. If there were a check that supported PE, I'd definitely use those!

I'm not sure how we could go about this, but it seems like it might be easier than we think... Maybe we can research it and find out. I'd be willing to help!

What do you think?

Allison,
As far as I know, Eleni and the powers that be are putting together a plan on a systematic way to take a look at all of these great ideas and get some of them rolling! If you don't mind, why don't you start taking a look at what it might take? Then, when we submit the idea to the commitee, they'll have a better idea of how feesable it is.

On a personal note: I didn't know I *NEEDED* checks like you describe until I read your post [:D] If they can make checks with dogs playing poker, why not the PF? LOL

Good idea..my checks are personal as well, they have my 4 labbie picture on them, I would certainly buy checks or labels representing the PF.
