****FUNDRAISING NEWS****

 
Beaver County Humane Society are hosting a fund raising event for their shelter, supporting over 4000 animals each year.
It's an online pet photo contest... all I did was pay $20 to submit a photo (Bazzil above), and now I get everyone I know on this planet to vote for Bazzil. The minimum vote is $5.

The top 2 contestants, based on the most votes, gets a cash prize and the photo will be turned into a set of note cards. (cash prize for runner-ups too!) If  I win, I mean if Bazzil wins, I will be giving the cash prize back to the animal shelter.
So, please please please go and vote for Bazzil. I want to win this!!!!

Out of my 10 cats and 6 dogs (soon to be 7!) I couldn't choose a good enough photo, so I chose Bazzil who is actually my sisters adorable dog!

OAXACA STREETCHILDREN GRASSROOTS ART AUCTION
If my calculations are correct (and anyone who knows me well, knows math is not my strong point!) we raised an amazing....... $3810.00 ~ for the Oaxacan Streetchildren Grassroots....

Well done to everyone who contributed an amazing shrine, and thanks for all the bids :O) Mine raised $225, so I was pleased. I am also going to be a proud owner of 2 wonderful shrines...
Thanks Rebecca, for organizing this event. It's been a pleasure getting to know you.
