First off--thank you for taking the time to stop by! I really appreciate it! So I have 2 great causes this year I am asking for your help on with donations--Pets Alive and the Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer Below is some information on each of these. If you could take a moment to read about both, and if you are interested in helping with either one, please fill out the form. I also ask if you would so kindly help spread the word by Twitter, a blog post, a Facebook post, anything you can do! Thank you again for taking the time to stop by!
This years choosen Charity is:
Pets Alive is an animal rescue in Middletown, NY that is commited to helping animals no matter where they are. Home to over 50 dogs and over 50 cats at any given time, as well as horses, livestock, birds, reptiles and any other animal thats been abandoned the staff of Pets Alive run a wonderful rescue that has gotten national acclaim. They have helped closed countless puppy mills and rescued dogs from Puerto Rico’s hated Dead Dog Beach. From their website:
Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary is one of the oldest no-kill organizations in the United States. The mission of the sanctuary is to rescue, rehabilitate, and place animals into loving homes. Last year, Pets Alive saved more than one thousand animals. Pets Alive is recognized within the local community, nationwide and around the world, as a leader in developing alliances to end the killing of adoptable animals and promoting the humane treatment of animals.
Both of these deserving charities run completely on donations, and we are hoping to raise $2000 this year to help with the day to day running of the Pets Alive compound!
So this is what I am working on doing. Authors and Publishers are donating gift baskets full of goodies from everything book related, to anything you can think of for the fans to donate to win. Last year they even had a cute little doggie gift basket! Well I thought why not try to put a few gift baskets together myself with the help of you! The big animal lover I am, I am always for helping out the worlds best 4 legged companions!
So what do you say? Do you have a book you would like to donate? A piece of handmade jewlery? Or a handmade Bookmark? How about a $10 GC to a book store, or coffee shop? Absolutly anything and everything will work! I would like to put together at least 2 gift baskets so anything you can donate, will be more than appreciated! (please no used items)
Please head on down and fill out the form, and please HELP SPREAD THE WORD!
