I've been doing this every year and it has evolved every year. Last year I decided you have to do something for animals and Felicia of the Geeky Blogger decided to join in (YES!). I think I'll do it this year as well. Last year I said you had to do it in the month of December. This time, I'm extending it to the whole of 2012. Since there was so much going on (especially with the big storm recently) that I think that those acts of kindness are worth talking about. Plus, if you are having a bad time of things during this season, I think it lifts you up to see people thinking of others. For examples check out last year's post HERE.
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 year.
- 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.
You could also donate to organizations like the ASPCA who are still helping out Sandy victims. The Humane Society or any local organization. It doesn't have to be about money. It could be time. You could have helped prevent BSL by writing to your congressman (see my left side for those links). Walking a neighbor's dog who cannot do so themselves. Donating needed items to a local shelter. Finding a dog and bringing it back to it's home. Blogging about your favorite charity or cause. There is a lot out there you can do.
*And as it was last year... it's on the honor system. Please do not lie. Sarah McLachlan will find you and make you cry if you lie. She can do it. I've seen those commercials. Yes, same threat, but I think it was a good one.
Oh and if you will help promote this, the animal gods will smile down on you... just sayin'... ;)
Here is the button:
So, in honor of my boy... I'm giving away $10 prize. Felicia, in honor of her girl is giving away a $10 prize as well. Yep, 2 winners! It will be either a Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift certificate or that same amount in book depository books. Yep, it's international. :) I'll end it on the 29th.
