To all my blog friends who are animal lovers, rescue lovers, pug lovers ~ perhaps you can help. Kelly from Cincinnati, Ohio, has come up with a unique way to help herself ~ and Ohio Pug Rescue. Even if you just stop by and offer her a word of encouragement, I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated.
Here is what she writes:
"I wanted to let you know about a project I am working on to raise funds for OPR. I have set up a website called www.poundsforpugs.com.
This website will serve as my personal weight loss blog.
I have decided that the only thing that really motivates me is animals, especially those puggies! So, as a result of this epiphany I have decided to incorporate weight loss and pugs.
I have asked people to sponsor my weight loss with all of the proceeds going to OPR. People might donate 50 cents per pound or what ever increment they decide on.
I have told people on my blog that I will collect the money every six months. They will send me a check made out to OPR and I will send it to you (Terri at OPR). I also linked the OPR website to my blog.
It's personal but if I'm going to do it I'm going to do it big!
The more money I can raise for the pugs the more motivated I will be.
Ohio Pug Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit all volunteer organization operating a surrender, foster care and placement program for all needy pugs in Ohio - no matter their age, condition, or health as funds and space allow. Donations are tax deductible.
If you've gotten this far, thank you so very much and thank you for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
