Blogathon for Charity

It must be the week/month/etc for good deeds. This past weekend, limecello raised over $1000 to give to RED by starting out a post pledging just $10. Inspired by her generosity (limecello is broke, no job and law school loans), others began to donate their money in exchange for comments as well. It was exciting to see how one person made such a big difference.

ONE-TOUCH-OF-SCANDALWe have another cash for comment charity idea to present to you. In celebration of Liz Carlyle’s latest release, One Touch of Scandal, Avon is pledging up to $3000 to give to Liz’s chosen charity which is Cat Angels (http://www.catangelsnc.org/). She says, "It’s a small, sweet organization with fuzzy pictures and no large benefactors at all." For every comment that is made here or at other blog spots like Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, Avon will match that comment with a dollar donation.

I am, I admit, not a huge animal lover but as a user of Icanhazcheeseburger pictures every week, I should be doing something to support animal rescue efforts like those of Cat Angels. It doesn’t cost you guys anything, but a few seconds to tap out a comment in support. Thanks!

    I wish I knew why my smaller-than-normal cat tends to be so heavy when he sleeps. Well, heavy enough to make my lap go numb. There must be a scientific explanation for this. And why a typical cat has to sit on a tiny sheet paper in the middle of a vast floor?
    How about the one where a cat repeatedly cries ‘Let me out!’ at a door and after you let the cat out, it cries ‘Let me in!” a few seconds later. Why? Why? WHY?!

    Don’t know that this will work, since I already commented on one of Liz’s blogs, but the support and good thoughts are there. My rescue, a big loving “moo cat” who was abandoned after his first human died, is sprawled contentedly on a chair nearby. It still gives me chills to think we might not have found each other.
