A New Years Fundraiser for Sophia - win a Snuggie! :-)

Okay, so maybe this isn't the most brilliant of fundraiser ideas, as you all know my natural hair color (at least when I was a kid!), but I have an idea that if all of my Facebook friends (and anyone else who stumbles on this) donated just $12 to Sophia's adoption grant for her New Year fundraiser - that's only like donating $1 a month for 2010 - that she could get $3000 in her grant!  That is not even the cost of giving up one trip to Starbucks a month for 2010 - maybe one item at the Dollar Tree a month for you bargain enthusiasts.  But if everyone donated just $12 (which, by the way is a tax deductible donation) that could mean the difference between a loving forever family or life in an institution!  Please consider donating to her grant! 

Oh, and with this cold weather here in Florida (freezing temperatures, I might add) it got me thinking that someone out there just might enjoy a brand new SNUGGIE!  For all of you who didn't get one for Christmas - now is your chance!  Or if you did get one, doesn't everyone need a spare?  I will randomly draw a name (your name goes in once per $12 donation) and announce the winner at the end of the month.  Then you tell me your color choice and I'll track one down on ebay if I have to.  You want Zebra striped? You got it!  Hot pink?  No problem!

Oh, and when you click on the ChipIn link that takes you to Paypal (to the right or below), the payment goes directly to Reece's Rainbow (the 501c3 non-profit) and 100% of the donations get put in Sophia's grant.  I have no way of knowing who donates, so you will either have to leave me a message here or on FB or by whatever other means of communication suits you. 

So, even if you don't win the much coveted Snuggie, just be proud that you helped save a life and get to claim that $12 as a tax-deductible donation! It's a win-win situation!

Thanks everyone and Happy 2010!
