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.
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!
