Social Media for Social Good: Part 1

folks, remember when i talked about the holiday blogging event for pets that involved fundraising and helping animals (any animal, not just doggies) and even a cash prize for the winner?

well, that all starts today! (technically it started at 9AM eastern, but i wasn't able to pull that off, so better late than never.)

there will be a total of three posts with a different way to get involved in each. today is the facebook entry. (the posts to follow will involve twitter and google+ entries, if FB's not your thing.)

if you would like some more information/details/rules about this event & giveaway, please head over to Two Little Cavaliers, or Pamper Yourself in Pink, as those are the hosting blogs. if you would like to just get to entering already, please see below:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

as a reminder, all the bloggers who joined up can enter the giveaway, too. i am hoping to win so that i can give 100% of the prize to Ruff House Rescue, the great organization who saved my baby from certain death at animal control.

they've got lots of sweet and cute dogs who need loving forever homes, some of whom have been there way too long. foster parents would be a thrill for these dogs, too! you can see their adoptable pets here on their petfinder page and here on their facebook page. in fact, the FB page is often updated more frequently & quickly, so be certain to check it out.

i've previously discussed how much this organization means to me, in my Adopt-a-Less-Adoptable-Pet Week post (where i included some sad & skinny photos of desmond from before we made him our furry son) and in my Blog the Change Day post. you can also read more about desmond's history at the top of the blog in the About Desmond section.

thank you so much for reading and participating and all you do to increase awareness of animal issues! don't forget to check back for the other two posts in a few days.

also, for your entertainment, i'm including the list of all the blogs that are participating. feel free to visit them and say hi.
