Oscar the Puppy birthday fundraiser!
Friday, Nov 22, 2013
* Oscar the Puppy was born on Thanksgiving last year, which is a year ago today. He’s going to the “salon” later today for a much needed haircut…
* This little dog has given me so much love and affection since I got him in January that I cannot possibly imagine life without him. Watching reports of the Illinois tornados last Sunday got me to thinking what I would do if something happened to him. Not a pleasant thought.
But it did get me to thinking that I should do something positive for the world on Oscar’s birthday, and I wanted to give y’all a chance to do the same. So, we’re going to do a bit of fundraising today.
* I called an animal shelter near Washington, IL and they suggested that we donate to the Red Cross. Donating to specific causes on the Red Cross website isn’t easy, but then I found a site sponsored by the Morton Chamber of Commerce that is raising money for the American Red Cross of Central Illinois to support supplies, food, and community restoration for the victims in Washington, Pekin, and East Peoria. I set up a companion site for our own fundraiser. Click here to see it.
I posted the site on Facebook last night, so we got a little head start.
* I will match your contributions up to a total of $1,000. I’ll also give Oscar a big hug every time somebody donates. If we make it to $1,000, I’ll post an Oscar video, and for every $1K afterwards I’ll do the same.
