I read about Spot on Bully & Nelson’s blog and it touched my heart.  Spot is a young, blind greyhound.  His blindness was caused by a central brain condition and is irreversible.  You can read a more detailed post about Spot here.

As you can imagine, Spot owes a lot of money to the vet.  Spot’s foster mom came up with a greyt idea to help Spot out.  Spot is selling these cute magnets!  They are $10 of which $8 goes to the Greyhound Adoption League of Texas and $2 covers postage, supplies and PayPal fees.  I love things like this…Spot gets $8, I get a super cute magnet, and Spot’s foster mom stays out of trouble because she’s busy mailing the magnets out.

The first batch of 50 magnets sold out before I could get to them, so I’m on the waitlist for the second batch which is expect around the end of June (2011).  If you would like a magnet, email Holly at Bullyandnelson@gmail.com.  Let her know how many magnets you would like (limit 2) and she will send you a PayPal invoice when the second batch of magnets arrives.  PLUS, everyone who purchases a magnet is entered in a drawing for a SPOT mug.  I HOPE I WIN THE MUG!  Don’t worry, my using capital letters will not influence Momma Holly.  She has a full-proof method of making sure no favoritism is shown.  You can check out the “drawing” for the mug from the first set of magnets here.

Spot has his own Facebook page and you can also check out Bullyn’ Nelson’s profile on Facebook.

My reason for writing about Spot is not only for Spot, but also because I love the “community” to be found on the internet.  Through blogs, Facebook, forums and other social networking platforms, you get to meet people from all over the country and world, and you discover new ways and avenues to help and be kind to others.  When something touches my heart and I have the ability to act, that’s what I want to do, and I HOPE I WIN THE MUG!

    Bully and Nelson’s mama is one of the sweetest, most kind-hearted people you will ever meet and she comes up with brilliant ideas for fund raising! Have you seen the Greystockings she sells? I love ours!

    Oh, and the pictures are just good fortune! I’m lucky that Bunny works for treats! 😉 It’s really easy to get her to pose and she’s just naturally cute! The crazy part is that I have a lot more pictures of her on Flickr that never make it to the blog!

    Ouch! My mom just went ‘SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!’. She LUVS Spot and she LUVS that magnet, too. And I have to agree. They are both super duper cute. And what a Most Magnificent idea to raise green papers. I hope they raise a million of ’em!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  • what a great idea! I HOPE YOU WIN THAT MUG TOO though i doubt my caps will help either. good luck 🙂
