Write a Post, Help a Dog -- Today is the Deadline

I never post on Saturday but I found this on The Eagle's Aerial Perspective blog this morning.

Pedigree is resurrecting its insanely successful Write a Post, Help a Dog program. In 2010, 391 bloggers wrote about the program and with each post, Pedigree donated 20 pounds of its Healthy Longevity dog food to shelter animals. In all, 7,820 pounds of food was donated to two shelters renowned for their care of senior dogs: Muttville Senior Dog Rescue in San Francisco and Castaway Critters in Harrisburg, Pa.

How you can help in 2011

Simply spread the word about Write a Post, Help a Dog 2011 and once again Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of food for each blogger's post. Here's all you need to include in your post:

The Write a Post, Help a Dog program is aimed at raising awareness and food for the more than four million dogs that wind up in shelters and breed rescues each year.
For each blog post mentioning the Pedigree Foundation from now until midnight ET on September 3, Pedigree will donate 20 pounds of its new dry Pedigree recipe food for dogs -- its best recipe ever -- to a shelter, because every dog deserves leading nutrition.

The Pedigree Foundation -- a 501 (C)(3) nonprofit organization is committed to helping dogs by providing grants to shelters and rescues and encouraging dog adoption. This year the Foundation has already raised more than $376,570 against its goal of $1.5 million to carry out its work to fund grants that not only help shelters operate, but to further shelter innovations.
The Pedigree Foundation depends on charitable contributions from individuals to carry out its mission to help dogs find loving homes. In addition to writing a blog post, here's how you can help:

No problem at all on the post---thanks for letting me know about it. And while I'm here, I think I'll skip down to the grill. :)

...I read your email a bit late, but posted of Pedigree's cause nonetheless, and the donations needed.

Thanks so much, Anne, for spreading the word ;)

Fantastic! I hope they manage to see all the blog posts - what a wonderful idea. :)


I love the cover of your new book. Beautiful. I went to Melissa's site and like what she does. I'm filing her name for some day!
Thanks for coming by to visit.
