Ring in the New Year with $213 for Your Pet Charity of Choice AND $112 for Yourself!


Why not ring in the New Year by helping pets in need and having a little extra spending case for yourself?! Well you can! We have joined Two Little Cavaliers and Pamper Yourself in Pink and other bloggers and businesses in a great way to kick off 2012 - by joining the  Social Media for Social Good Holiday Event for Pets where you could win a $112 cash prize via PayPal for yourself and $213 cash prize sent directly to a charity of choice! Now that's pretty pawsome!

How can you participate? Very simply. All you have to do is fill out the rafflecopter below for your chance to win! The event runs until December 28th, so you have time to let your friends in on the fun too, while raising awareness for pet charities!

Furangel Chelsey
Furngel Sandy
I thought about what organization I would give to if I won. There are so many great Husky and animal rescues and organizations out there that are so deserving and I whole-heartedly support, but this time around I've decided I'd like to give it a little closer to home to the independently operated UCSPCA, and do a little "pay it forward" for the two beautiful souls I met as pups there and immediately fell in love with and adopted, and had the pleasure of having them in my life until they crossed the Rainbow Bridge years later. So if I win, I'm donating the shelter portion to the UCSPCA in honor of my beautiful furangels Chelsey and Sandy.
Please watch this video by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) supporter Sarah McLachlan. The beautiful dog at 1:23 bears such an uncanny resemblance to my furangel Sandy. I knew this was a sign that I selected the right organization to benefit. If you're not sure where you'd like your donation to go to if you win, please check to see if you have an SPCA shelter in your hometown, or check out the ASPCA. You can also check out the other blogs listed below to find some very worthwhile places in need of donations and support. No matter which pet charity gets the $213 donation (or even if you decide to also donate your portion of the winnings to pets in need too!) it's such a worthwhile event and what a wonderful way to launch the New Year with a little cheer for some pets in need.

So have some fun, visit some blogs, leave some comments, and tell us what animal charity or organization you would like to donate the money to should you win!

Happy Holidays and Good Luck!
