Last week, I mentioned some ways I’m hoping to get a few dollars here and there. *Kevin is working on all of those *newspaper/magazine/blog names you sent (and still can). I sent *flyers to those of you who requested them. Many of you are trying to help me get the word out about the *book. I heard back from Pawlee’s Treats (more later). And I got help with a book review and a YouTube video from some very special people I will mention before this week is out. But today . . .
DRUMROLL . . . .
Today’s post is all about a fundraiser that my dear friend Andrea over at Celestial Kitties cooked up. She sews (something I have no knowledge of). Andrea contacted me about a cat toy fundraiser for Winnie’s Wish. It seemed like SO much work for her, but she insisted and started right to work on it. Andrea sent me one of her packages of toys so that I could get a look at what people and their kitties would be getting. Andrea said I could give the toys to my own cats since all of the donated toys (unless otherwise directed) go to the cathouse kitties. I dumped that package out onto my family room carpet and felt the excitement. I knew these items were DEFINITELY sellers. I felt loads of happiness looking at those great toys. My cats were drawn immediately to what I was doing. I got my camera to take pictures of the toys for my (today’s) fundraiser post. What followed was a play session like we’ve never had before. My cats are all adults. No kittens in the mix. Analeigh and Jazzy are the youngest, at two and one, respectively. But ALL SIX of my cats got involved in THIS party!
People - I’ve gotta tell ya. I would be pushing this toy package to everyone anyway because it will help me keep the rescue work going. But after I saw how much fun my own cats had with these toys, I can honestly say that YOU are going to be thrilled if you order a package for YOUR kitties. I’m not even going to say any more about how entertained my crew was. I’m just going to show you.
This is Andrea’s project - her own idea, her own genius and talent at work. I am going to send you over to HER blog now where you can find out everything you need to know about how to get your own. Andrea is a constant voice for Winnie’s Wish in terms of looking for forever homes and funds. Now she has taken this very concrete step to help the homeless by launching her own FUNdraiser. I hope everybody EVERYWHERE who has one, two, three, four, five, six cats or more buys one of Andrea’s toy packages. I will keep a graphic in my sidebar for as long as Andrea is willing to keep making toys. You can click it to find out how to get yours. *Please head over to her place - she has worked SO hard on this.
Andrea ~ THANK YOU!
