Well my birfday is coming up at the end of this month you guys, and I'd like to talk to you about my gift. This year I have decided to be verreh un-selfish for my birfday. Instead of buying me presents, I have asked my mommeh to use the munnies to make a donation to the local animal shelter.
I am a verreh lucky, verreh spoiled girl. My mommeh rescued me from a bad place, and now I have all the toys and treats I could ever need. The pups and kittehs at the shelter though... not so much. They are all verreh sad, in cages, waiting and hoping that some bean will come and take them home before their time runs out. My mommeh knows all about it - she went to this particular shelter to get my older woofie bruvver, Denny The Incredible Pekingese. (Denny lives in North Carolina now with my grampa, and he is also verreh lucky and spoiled, wif good foods to eat and all the toys and love he wants, and it almost did not happen - the day my mommeh chanced to walk in and adopt him was the day he was scheduled to be put to sleep.)
My mommeh was telling me all about this place, called the Hempstead Animal Shelter, and how sad it is, and how the poor kittehs and pups have verreh little toys or treats or blankies. And so I took our conversation to heart, and I have made up my mind to give away my birfday munnies to our bruvvers and sisters there, and make what might be their last days a little more sweet and comfortable. And just maybe one of the toys bought wif our munnies will bring a sparkle to a kitteh's eye that wasn't there before, and might draw some bean's attention to adopt him. Originally I had considered giving my birfday munnies to North Shore Animal League, which is a no-kill shelter, but all the animals there are guaranteed to find a home and they already receive so many donations... I thought this place could really use the help more.
So on the sidebar is my ChipIn, and you can click it to make a donation through your PayPal account. Since my birfday is April 29th, the ChipIn will be open until May 1st. I did not know how much to put since I have never done a ChipIn before, so it is set for $500, but I am sure any donation would be heartily welcomed. I know times is tough for everybuddy right now, but every little bit will help make our furrends at the shelter a little more comfy and happy, so please, absolutely no donation is too small - pennies can make dollars. And just so everybuddy knows, we will not be visiting the shelter to give the munnies or taking any pictures - it is just too sad - so only donate if you trust us because we will not be able to give you any proofs. My mommeh and I will be making the donation to the shelter anonymously, because we do not want any recognition, we just want to help, so there will be no big hoo-ha when it is done, but oh boy will it feel good.
P.S. - I am creating a special award for anyone who donates!!!
