How to help Pino for Pie Day 2010

1] Send an apron: either hand made or one you find in the antique/thrift shop, Include your name and website link, or email, and tag it onto the apron if it is handmade. Safety pinning a tag on is fine. And make sure you send your mailing address and email for Pino - he sends thank you notes.

2] Become a Pino Pie Ambassador: No matter where you live, you can help Pino. Collect 10 aprons from your friends or coworkers, schoolmates, and send them to Pino by June 21. I'll add a link here to your site. Send your mailing address because Pino sends Ambassadors a little gift later in the year.

3] Pennies for Pino's Porta Potty:. Pino needs a wheelchair access porta potty. Get your children involved collecting pennies for him. We fin d the kids just love the porta potty for some reason.

4] Volunteer at Pie Day: Pie servers to keep the table tidy. Depending on what help I get from friends and others, I might need general helpers, so let me know if you want to be on the "Pino Call" list.

5] Spread the word: Twitter, blog and Facebook about the event!

6] Donations: We aren't a 501c, but ewe gladly accept donations. Money is used to purchase pie ingredients, insurance, supplies and promotions. We also save some donations to help needy senior animals, or have private Pino Pie Parties for those needing cheer [like last year's Hospice Day].

7] Make a pie. Share it with an elderly neighbor or person. Then write Pino and tell him all about it.
