I lied, this is totally just another birthday post! This time the birthday is mine. Me being the human, with the thumbs behind this here blog. I thought long and hard about whether I would share this with blog readers, but I finally decided, what the hell, why not.
Every year I ask my friends to forgo gifts and to donate to the local Humane Society- and for the past few years I have been using the internets, in the form of the Facebook Causes application to help facilitate donations. Last year my birthday wish collected $225 for the Humane Society of Chittenden County. This year I set the goal at $250.
I certainly don't expect blog readers to donate for my birthday (unless you are my Mom or the other 2 or 3 friends that read this blog, then I do actually expect you to donate!). I only wanted to share one of the ways I try to help out animals through out the year. It's my hope that this blog will allow me to reach out and share more of what I do, definitely share more of what's out in the universe of animal related things that interest me and even spur me to get more involved in causes I love.
There's just 11 more days until I turn (mumble mumble). I am excited for this next year and kicking it off with a big fat donation for animals will kinda rock (and roll!). Tell me in the comments if you have ever done a birthday wish like this? Has it been successful?
