Update: Sorry guys. I had my dates mixed up and thought that today was May 6 (it’s May 7).
So I’ve changed the contest end date to May 7. Because it just seems really rude to say “today’s the last day” at the end of the day.
Do you support animal adoption?:
Do you love gorgeous hand-knit shawls?
Then this charity fundraiser is definitely for you.
I’m giving away a hand-knit Color Affection shawl in a prize drawing for those who choose to join me in supporting Paws and Claws animal shelter, or their local animal shelter. For more information please see this blog post.
The contest ends May 6 at midnight, so there’s still time for you to enter.
How to enter the shawl drawing
1) Make a donation to your local animal shelter. Here’s a link to my local Paws and Claws animal shelter donation page.
2) Leave a comment. Come back to the original blog post and leave a comment telling me:
- You made a donation to an animal shelter. You don’t have to tell me how much.
- Tell me about the intended recipient of the shawl (Will it be for you? You mom? Your dentist?). Alternatively, tell me a cute pet story.
There will be one entry per person, no matter how much you choose to donate. The winner will be drawn randomly using a random number generator. I will contact the winner via email and will announce the winner here on this blog the week of May 6, 2014.
Thank you to everyone who has participated already. As so many of you have said in your comments, this is about supporting the animal shelters that bring such wonderful critters into our lives. No matter who wins the shawl, everyone who supports wins because they are helping animal companions in need.
