Santa Paws Drive - Good News - But Help Still Needed

I just love hiding under the Christmas Tree!

Hi Pals,


I'm jumping up and down with happiness today because I read The Daily Cute's Bloggy.  You has to go over there and see the mountain of toys going to the 6 different shelters all over the world.   It's awesome and makes me feel so good to know I helped out with a couple of $$ too.


But, More help is still needed because of the number of kitties and doggies still in shelters.     The have a great raffle going and you can buy a ticket for only $1.00 - yes, that's right - just $1.00 and you'll have a chance to win one of the great donated prizes.   Or, if you have a couple of $1.00 to spare, you can still donate to the general fund, any amount you can spare, thru tomorrow, which will be used to buy toys.   The Raffle goes on for a few more days yet.   


For the benefit of new pals or blogging pals that don't know what this is all about, every year the Twitter anipals throw a fund raiser called "Santa Paws Drive" to buy toys for some anipal shelters.  This year, they are donating to 6 anipal shelters scattered all across the globe.  We were so lucky because @GreeniesBrand matched our contributions up to $1,000.  How great is that!  Thank you so much @Greeniesbrand - you are awesome.   


You can read all about it by clicking on this link:  The Daily Cute.   It's a great cause and makes you feel so good inside knowing you helped provide a Merry Christmas for some of the anipals in shelters.

That is such a good thing to do. We support it every year. Dorian does a great job and it is so great that the shelters benefit. All those animals in the shelters will have some toys for Christmas. Can't get any better than that.
