For Purim, we are encouraged to dress up,
get silly, and help those in need.
That's why MAZON is asking you to donate to feed the hungry... then dress your pet in a costume and submit a photo to our third annual PURIM PET PARADE!
After 5 DAYS OF VOTING, the winners will be announced on Purim (March 7th). The best pets will receive a beautiful custom pet portrait by a local Canadian artist:
Brittany Lauren, Zach Cartman or Corryn Bamber.

HOW DO I JOIN THE PARADE?
Click the "SIGN UP" button below and make your donation.
In the confirmation screen, and confirmation email, you'll receive a Parade Invitation link.
At any point before submissions close (midnight on March 1st), you can use this link to upload a photo or video of your well-dressed pet.
CAN I SUBMIT AN OLD PHOTO? ARE THERE ANY OTHER RULES?
Old photos are accepted; you do not need to take an original photo!
Costumes do not have to be Purim themed.
You are only allowed one submission per pet... BUT if you have a bunny, frog and cat, they can each be entered once!
Any species of pet can be entered, but please be extra careful when dressing them up.
We do not want pets to be harmed!
HOW IS THE WINNER DECIDED?
When submissions close on March 1st, we will send 5,000 Mazon supporters a voting link (please feel free to "get out the vote" by sharing your link with family and friends).
Polls will be open from 12am on March 2nd to 12pm on March 7th.
At noon on Purim (March 7th), votes will be tallied and the top three pets will receive a custom pet portrait from a talented local artist!
PRIZES: First place winner gets their choice between the 3 artists; second choice gets their choice between the remaining 2 artists; 3rd place gets a portrait by the remaining artist. The photo you submit to the artist does not have to be the winning photo (of your pet in costume) - it can be any photo of your pet!
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHY SHOULD I DRESS UP MY PET FOR PURIM?
The Purim masquerade provides a dual opportunity to be celebrate joyfully, while also reflecting on a specific aspect of hunger: that things are not always as they appear. That, even in this country of plenty, millions go hungry every day.
This Purim, we acknowledge the invisible crisis of hunger by celebrating old traditions in new ways. Through our Purim campaign, your donations will provide food for vulnerable people of all ages, abilities, faiths and backgrounds from coast to coast - on behalf of our Jewish community!
