Nuggets by January Ogden Pet Waste Removal is a new business located in Central Florida on the West Coast. Our name is pretty self-explanatory but there's more because part of our business is also to educate people. Were you aware that Pet Waste is listed on "Florida's list of Worst Bacterial Contaminants" as both number 3 & 4. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) began to take notice of this as explained on their website in 2001. Has anyone told you that Pet Waste is polluting our waters, poisoning our aquifers and killing our fish. If someone told you that sometime in the near future our world may no longer have any fresh drinking water available; would you believe it? Did you know that this is not just a problem that Florida must deal with alone.....this is worldwide.
Nuggets believe that knowledge is power and it's our best line of defense at securing a brighter future for our planet. Without fresh water our world will not survive. I am currently doing what I can to market my business as my brochures that are used for advertising are filled with important informational readings. However people are UN aware of these types of statistics and the idea that Pet Waste is destroying our planet is a new concept to them. Alot of advertising must be done so people will begin to understand that this is a serious issue. It's almost as if their perception must be changed because up until now Pet Waste has been thought of as just no big deal.
The reason I am posting this fundraiser today is because I need help. People are not taking me or my business serious because I'm being forced to work with a shoe string budget. My brochures are too cheap/unprofessional and so I do not fit the persona of someone of importance. So in effect people are not listening. I am reaching out today and asking for people who would kindly consider helping me on my mission; our mission.....to save our planet. I am frustrated because I have a message but I am unable to deliver it because I'm being held back by financial reasons & that is a terrible excuse for me not to move forward.
If I were to receive any donations from generous folks that may be reading this I would consider that a blessing. The donations of course would go towards all of my basic advertising which will be upgraded to better quality products. I will be able to order more professional looking business cards and brochures that capture and keep the attention of my audience. My website will have it's own domain name and be filled with lots of easy to understand information. Unfortunately it's very hard if not impossible to do anything online via tiny cell phone screen but in time that will change. I also have much bigger plans. I wish to do mailing lists. You have to remember that I live and work in Florida. Land of the elderly animal lovers who may not know how to use a computer; but they too need to be informed of the dangers as well. The sky is the limit on what I can do to raise awareness about this cause. It all takes money though. Money for business start ups and money to educate. I don't have it so easy to just go and get that on my own.
Both my husband and son are disabled so my schedule is not a typical one. I can't just come and go at a regular job at the whim of an employer. I have to work for myself for specific reasons just so my family can function normally. Yes, everyone has their own story and this is mine but that doesn't mean that I can't make this work.....because I can and I will! This business is for a great cause and I hope you believe it too. Part of the reason I believe my business has the potential to be great is because Nuggets will be self-sustaining.
Nuggets is a for profit company so of course some of the money derived from this company will be used to pay our bills and be productive citizens in this great Nation.....but it's also to educate others who are not aware of the situation that we are being faced with. So once this business is able to stand on its own two feet the money will also be able to go back into it to keep it going and keep the information current and to keep the wheels of progress turning. We have enough things that are polluting our water all across the globe; making fresh water almost nonexistent in some Continents. We don't need Pet Waste adding to this problem. Not only because it can be so deadly but also because it's something that can easily be fixed and maintained.
I wish I could offer some type of reward like bracelets or key chains but unfortunately at this time I cannot. I would however be happy to send an email of thanks to each and every person that makes a donation. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have with regards to the dangers of Pet Waste and what can be done to rectify the problem. I also would be happy to make Honorable Mentions of each person who donates on my website that I am currently using. If the time comes to where I can obtain a more professional website with my own domain name I would most defiantly transfer those Honorable Mentions names to a Thank You page that will be found on that new site. I started this business in March of this year but I cannot make it successful without any help. I hope you agree that my company holds value and that a voice left quiet is worse than a broken dream.
I hope that you can find it in your heart to help my dream come true. I left the donation box blank because I realize that each gift/donation will be different and I didn't want to put a minimal price in there because to me each donation is just as important as the next and they all add up to knowledge and power. I thank you for taking the time to read this today and I hope to hear from you soon. Feel free to email me with any questions that you may have.
Thank you again and have yourself a wonderful day!
