Doing Our Part: A Holiday Event for Pets

we just signed up to be a part of Social Media for Good: A Holiday Event for Pets.
this is a fund- and awareness-raising event for animal shelters that also benefits bloggers and offers a cash prize for a giveaway winner--all made possible by Two Little Cavaliers and Pamper Yourself in Pink.

basically, a bunch of bloggers virtually get together and chip in toward the prize money, $10 each. in exchange for that, the bloggers get some exposure through one another. there will also be some event-related posts going out on all the blogs involved, and it's those posts on which you'll be able to enter to win the prize. what's the prize? dolla dolla bills, y'all.

whatever the total amount raised turns out to be, that's the prize. but this isn't just about winning cash. it's about helping our ani-pals. 60% of the prize will go to the winner's non-profit organization of choice. 40% is theirs to keep.

participating bloggers are also eligible to enter, and i hereby pledge that if i win i will be donating 100% of the money to Ruff House Rescue, desmond's saviors.

this all may sound a bit confusing, so please, please visit the Two Little Cavaliers post to learn more about this and/or to join up (if you're a blogger) and/or to simply chip in (if you're a non-blogger). note: any money chipped-in by a non-blogger will go 100% to the non-profit chosen by the winner. none of those funds will go into the cash pool for the winner as an individual.

oh, one more thing, there's a little incentive going for the blogger who refers the most other bloggers to the event--as participants--so if you decide to join because i batted my eyelashes in your direction, please do mention Life With Desmond when you fill out the form.

thanks, all!
