Let’s Help Needy Doggies + $50 gift card

UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner Amanda, who won the $50 gift card by random.org draw. And I have amazing news! One Tail at a Time won the online voting!! Kriser’s is now counting up any mail-in votes, and will officially announce a winner on July 28th – paws crossed for them and THANK YOU for helping such a great cause by voting!


Hi guys!  I know it’s Friday night and I’m interrupting the regularly scheduled wedding goodness, but it’s for a good cause, I promise! I’m a big supporter of the Chicago rescue One Tail at a Time. They concentrate their efforts on dogs that are in danger of being euthanized, or those that are physically and/or mentally deteriorating in a shelter environment. They work to rehabilitate them, place them in foster homes (and pay for their care while they are being fostered), and match them with their perfect forever families. Basically, they do the work of angels.

And right now, there is a contest going on and they are in the running to win $25,000 of food and supplies from Kriser’s. Can you imagine how many needy doggies they could save by putting $25,000 to use? If you have two seconds, please help out by clicking here and clicking the “vote” button. The contest ends Monday and you can vote once every 24 hours. You don’t have to give any personal information, just click “vote” and make sure you see the number tick up.

I’m sweetening the deal for you because OTAT is now BEHIND (NOOOO!) by a few votes. One lucky voter will win a $50 gift card to Pottery Barn. Go vote (or if you already have voted, that works too!), come back here and comment, and I’ll select one of ya’ll to receive the gift card. Two clicks for a chance at $50 isn’t so bad, right? :)

And now some shameless campaigning from OTAT rescues:





Sometimes doing a little good is as easy as clicking a few buttons.  Thank you for being such amazing readers and if you have the time to click over to vote, the OTAT rescues send you big puppy kisses! :)

Have an awesome weekend!
