My baby is going to have a birthday. Felicia's baby, and co-conspirator, from the Geeky Blogger is also having a December b-day! I've done different giveaways in the past, but this time I decided to do something different. With the economy the way it is around the world, puppies all over are having a hard time. In fact many are abandoned to fend for themselves. Several organizations are trying to help, but of course all need support of the public.
This time Felicia's pup and my pup will have you do something for animals (not just dogs or domestic animals) but any animal you feel connected. It can be a national organization like the National Wildlife Federation, something more specific, but still national like Veterinarians Without Borders who do help animals all over the world... or something local. In fact, they encourage the local since it would have an impact on where you live. For example, my local vet has a drive every year. They collect money, objects and food for the shelters. Usually there is a wish list of items they need. If you don't have money, but perhaps some stuff to give, you can do that. It's as easy as calling your local shelter to see what they need. All have a list.
So, no... as you can see, they're not just talking about giving money. You may not have that to give. No problem. They are also crediting any type of service you can provide. For example, walking a neighbor's dog who is elderly and cannot get out. Pet sitting during an emergency. Volunteering some time at a shelter. All options are open.
Service can and often is more important than money. Remember this is an entry as well!
To make this easy here are the rules:
- You must do something for animals. It can be giving money, volunteering, or supporting them in some major way this month (yes, you could have done something at the beginning of the month before the giveaway started... just as long as it is in Dec.).
- You must tell me what you did or where you donated (do not tell me the amount if it is money) in the comments. That way people can also find out what to do or where to donate.
- Fill out the Rafflecopter form which also has prompts to remind you to do this.
Any and all tweets, FB posts, Google +, etc are greatly appreciated. You should also have plenty of time to do something. The giveaway ends at the end of the month.
The prizes (donated by myself and Felica of the Geeky Blogger):
$20 from either Amazon in the form of a G/C or same amount from the Book Depository
$15 from either Amazon in the form of a G/C or same amount from the Book Depository
Now, I do hear that my dog's partner in crime for this giveaway, Felicia's dog, has said that December dogs rule and their owners drool! I maintain that isn't true... well, unless you count Book Boyfriend Day or Top off Tuesdays or... oh hush! ;)
Make our puppies proud! Make sure you tell the truth OR I'll be forced to find all Sarah McLachlan's ASPCA videos and make you watch them until you ball your eyes out!
Seriously, don't lie...
