Doggy Zoom Quiz

Doggy Zoom Quiz

The idea 

Zoom quiz nights have really taken off over the last few months as people get creative about how they spend time together whilst still staying apart.  

We’ve developed a Doggy Zoom Quiz with various categories of wacky questions which would be great fun for family and friends who want to put their canine knowledge to the test. You could play for pride or liaise with local businesses to see if they might donate a prize for the winner. 

If you are inviting the local community to get involved you could try following the below steps;

  1. Nominate your Quizmaster. 

  2. Select your date for the quiz and set up a Facebook Event.  

  3. Promote your event. (See tips below) 

  4. Send entrants the Zoom quiz link. For example:  

Thank you for entering our Doggy Zoom Quiz. We are looking forward to seeing you next Friday and hope it will be lots of fun. Please see below link to our JustGiving page where we will ask you to make a €5/€10 donation so that Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind can continue #ChangingLives.

On the day, the Quizmaster calls out the questions – the participants write down their answers, and then at the end the quizmaster calls out the answers and the participants tot up their scores.  

Afterwards, email players to thank them for participating, reinforcing the idea that their involvement will help the charity to continue our work changing lives.

When  

Whenever suits you! All you need is a quizmaster and some willing participants. If you haven’t yet used Zoom, we have a How to Guide available.

Income 

You can set up a JustGiving page which all participants can donate to. We would suggest each participant donates a minimum of €5 to get involved! 

Promoting 

Post details on your Facebook page which will be key to promoting your event. Having some planned content (video or photo updates) will help boost your fundraising efforts. 

  • Spread the word amongst your family and friends encouraging them to get involved.

  • If you know families who regularly have a family zoom quiz, why not promote it to them?  

  • Place posters in local shops and businesses. 

  • Get in touch with local dog groomers and vets and ask them to spread the word. 

  • Contact local community groups and online Facebook pages and ask them to promote the event.
