Hennessy Puzzles - Fundraising and Giving Back
Zimbabwe Artists Project
Not not only is the African Animals puzzle a great puzzle, but it gave us the opportunity to publicize the Zimbabwe Artists Project by inserting a brochure in every puzzle box. ZAP has disbanded but we hope to do more projects like this in the future.
We recently had the opportunity to donate the first batch of what we hope will be many puzzles in the coming years to Fisher Houses across the country. Fisher Houses provide military and veterans’ families with a place to stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. The homes are located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve.
Many house managers sent us gracious and heartwarming messages in return, including this one from the Salt Lake City Fisher House: “Without your support we could not provide for the smaller niceties that make hospitalization more bearable.”
We love thinking of Hennessy Puzzles being shared in common rooms, helping injured or ill veterans pass the time, and offering some small comfort to military families during difficult times. Thank you Belinda, Sharon, Char, Jane, Michele, Shelly, Stacy, and all the great people at Fisher House for the kind words.
If you'd like to find out more about Fisher Houses or how you can contribute your time or money to their worthy mission, visit their site at FISHERHOUSE.ORG
We are putting together a fundraising program for schools, clubs, and non-profits that resell Hennessy Puzzles on commission. Programs will include simple affiliate programs with a button on a web page and go up to design and production of custom puzzles. Imagine your middle school having its own puzzle!
