New Years Giving -"Take the Challenge. Change the World".

I'm helping my friend Bernie try to win a grant for her animal rescue. She has listed her animal rescue in the "Take the Challenge. Change the World" contest sponsored by Parade. It's a chance for your favorite charity to win $50,000 and A Place to Bark is MY Charity of choice.

So please, give if you can! And repost this everywhere. The Deadline is Jan 31, 2008

How the Contest Works: The four charity badges with the most unique donations through America's Giving Challenge will get $50,000 for their cause. America's Giving Challenge runs only until January 31st.

To Donate:If you are able donate , please donate click the badge I have on my side bar. There is a $10 minimum (tax deductible) donation. Of course, you CAN give more if you want!! In order to win the grant , the top 4 badges will have the most amount of donors, not the most amount of money donated. You do have to create an account on the site but it only takes a minute.

Also another big plus is all donations made to A Place to Bark's Six Degrees Badge, will be matched by the "Zoline Foundation" up to $25,000.00!!! All donations up to June 1st will be counted for the matching donation from the Zoline Foundation.

Also Tim Holtz will be giving away a gorgeous assemblage to one lucky donor too! check out his blog for details on how to win before you donate.

So please help Bernie by reposting the badge on your websites, blogs and groups. To get the code, click the SHARE button on the badge.

Thank you!

I can vouch for Bernie's rescue. I have a new grand-dog thanks to Bernie. Lexi joined our family back in December and Lexi is just the BEST!

I hope all your readers will jump in with us and donate that $10 to help get A Place to Bark up into that top 4. Bernie will make great use of all donated funds, and if she wins the grant she can build that year-round shelter building she so badly needs.

Go Bernie!!
