Paws for a Cause

That's right even the naughty girls love animals:)  I was happy to sign up for a great cause and work with two wonderful bloggers, Laurie and Danielle.  Both run an amazing blog and are always doing things in the blogging community.  Hats off to both you wonderful ladies.  Even though I don't have a furry friend anymore...I used to.  

My malamute lived with me for 17 years and I cried for months after she died.  She truly was a big part of my family.  So in her honor I am here helping out these lovely ladies to raise money to help others with a greater need.  Let's take a look at the charity and a few words from our hosts:

Hello Everyone! We have a total of 59 blogs that have gotten together to help raise money for a great cause. There are going to be some awesome prizes up for grabs for people that donate money to the cause. Here is a little about the company that we are raising the money for:
Paws With A Cause® enhances the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities nationally through custom-trained Assistance Dogs. 
PAWS® increases awareness of the rights and roles of Assistance Dog teams through education and advocacy.  Founded in 1979, Paws With A Cause is dedicated to helping its clients who are challenged by many disabilities, such as Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Seizure Disorders, and Hearing Disorders to name just some.  Each of our dogs are trained to meet the specific needs of our clients. Tasks may include opening and closing doors, picking up objects, pulling a wheelchair, turning lights on and off, and alerting a person to particular sounds like a telephone, doorbell, smoke detector and many others. Our dogs change lives by enhancing the independence of our clients. By just opening a door, a dog opens up the world for a person with a disability and your donations will go to making that happen.  PAWS thanks you so much for your donation and allowing us to open more doors.

How to donate:
2. Click on "Make a Donation"
3. Enter a amount you wish to donate. Everibbon will add a small fee to your donation for processing. My fee for donating $5.00 was .49 cents. So keep this in mind when deciding your donation amount. You will receive 1 entry into the giveaway for every $1 you donate. 
4. In the box that says "on the behalf of" please put your name. This is the name that will be listed on the everibbon website so put a name you do not mind being visible to everyone. Do not check the box to make a anonymous donation because I will not be able to track your donation to enter you into the giveaways.
5. Next it will ask you for your credit or debit card information.
6. Then it will ask for your email address to send you a receipt. This is so that you can submit it for tax purposes.
7. Ta Da! Your all done making your donation. Now you need to contact Danielle to enter the giveaway.
8. Please email Danielle at with the name you used to donate your money. For example the name I used to donate on behalf of was Romance Book Junkies. Do not send me your name off your credit or debit card because I will not be able to see this. Along with the name you used please tell me how much you donated and if you live in the US or are International.
9. Your all done. Thank you for donating!

Warning: Do not try to email Danielle the name and donation amount of another person that is not yourself. If Danielle recieves more than one email with the same persons name and donation amount she will have to ask for your copy of the receipt from everibbon to verify that you are the correct winner. Thank you.

We will have 3 winners for the main giveaway.
We have 2 $65 gift certificates to any online book store.
Also we have a huge box of books and swag from Romance Book Junkies for US residents only.

Good luck to all and thank you for helping make this fundraiser a success!

I have a rescue cat, 4 more cats outside (also rescues), 2 dogs that I bottle raised (after their mothers died when they were less than a week old), 3 other dogs, several rabbits- so yea, I have quite a menagerie of furry friends :-)

I have 5 inside cats at the moment (7 was my most) and 2 to 4 outside (but have had many come and go) feral/strays too. I've been helping out for over 20 years - caring, feeding, fixing and finding homes.

I've got the best furry babies ever - a corgi named Ein (from Cowboy Bebop) and a totally white cat named Switch (from the Matrix, the one in white)! :D

No, I don't currently have a furry four legged friend. I am still mourning the loss of my last dog :( I think maybe by the end of the year I might start visiting shelters and looking for a new friend.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

Will have my babies featured on Monday. Love my malemute and I'm so sorry you lost yours. I know how hard it is to lose a pet. :(

I have 3~ youngest is a mutt chiwawa I found on the streets, next is a dashund who folks got from a resceued shelter. The last is my dear Alexis. She is half germanshepard/watwoler (idk how to spell to breed names) she is now 16 years old. We have had her living inside to keep her comfortable. The vet said she only 3 months tops left; and that was almost a year ago. She still has a good quality of life. :)
