Have you heard of Authors After Dark Conference?
Each year they do a Charity Baskets Raffle and ALL proceeds go to the choosen Charity.

This years choosen Charity is:


(FROM AAD WEBSITE)

This year we are doing our charity raffle for an extremely deserving charity: Pets Alive. Pets Alive is a front runner in the ongoing fight against animal cruelty.



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!

The Alzheimer's Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s™ is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. Since 1989, this walk has mobilized millions to join the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, raising more than $347 million for the cause. Events are held annually in the fall in nearly 600 communities nationwide. With more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's, and nearly 11 million more serving as caregivers, the time to act is now!


Walking to END Alzheimers


Team Bubby

For the last 2 years my best friend, my mom and I have taken part in the Walk to END Alzheimer's. And last year I had some of you who were wonderful in donating for the cause. This year I would like to take it one step further. I am looking for a few of you who are willing to donate signed books, swag, maybe a book store GC, anything book related. What I would like to do is give back to those of you who donate for this cause. How it will work is everyone who donates to the charity, will be entered to win a prize. But that is later on towards the end of the year. Right now I am looking for your help in donated items. So please head on down and fill out the form. And thank you for taking the time to help out!
