BlogPaws Inspired "Be the Change for Animals" T-Shirts

Yesterday I posted that, as a part of the “Be the Change” blog challenge, I would design a T-Shirt for my CafePress shop and dedicate the proceeds to animal rescue groups.

Well, here is the design.

All proceeds from sales of any product in the“Be the Change for Animals in Need” section of my shop during the month of April and May will go to Pets Without Parents. After May, proceeds from sales of the shirt will go to my local animal charity, Friends of Stark Pound or another worthy animal rescue group.

Pet Bloggers and Animals enthusiasts around the world are participating in the “Be the Change Challenge” by doing small and big things to help animals who are in shelters or are needing special care.

Some are raising donations; some are volunteering at local rescue organizations; and some are dedicating their time and skills to make the world aware of the needs of animal charities around the world.

I hope that you will consider purchasing one of the T-Shirts or doing something else to help pets in need. They give so much to us–can’t we do something for them?

Here is the code if you would like to put the widget for the “Be the Change for Animals” T-Shirt on your website:

Oh yeah, and we are having a Twitter BlogPawty on April 21 from 7 pm – 1 am (EST) to have fun and raise money for Pets Without Parents. Hope to see you there!

Thanks for being the CHANGE!

Congratulations to Santa Paws Drive!

I am a big fan of animal rescue groups and all the fine work that they do to help pets find homes.

So when Twitter friends @FrugalDougal, @BabyPatches and @YourDailyCute got together to create Santa Paws Drive to benefit 6 different animal shelters around the world, I was thrilled!

It was quite an effort, but they surpassed their goal of raising $3600 in cash and gifts to the shelters! At last count, they had raised $3787!!!

When I first started getting into social media, I had no idea how many great organizations there were doing excellent work on behalf of animals. As an animal artist and an animal lover, I feel truly blessed to have connected with many of these organizations and people working on their behalf.

Many of these people got behind the Santa Paws Drive effort, and they really made the whole event special.

Special thanks go out to the organizers and to those who donated to the cause.

There will be some critters smiling and thanking you this Christmas.
