Thankful For The Generosity of Others
Hiya! Savannah Here!
I am so thankful that my paw blog furriends are so generous with the swag they bring home from conventions or stuff they win in contests and then pass on to others through competitions or raffles…what a great and generous community are we!
Here is an example… I realized that Sparkle had a newsletter about a month ago, so of course, I subscribed. LUCKY ME…Sparkle’s staff had just come back from a visit to the Purina campus in St. Louis, with lots of Purina coupons.
You may recall, Sparkle did a drawing for all but one set of those coupons and Cathy Keisha won! Purrfect! “Cuz that nasty Sandy had just visited CK’s ‘hood and they needed food for lots of kittehs.
Well, anyways, Sparkle used one last set of those Purina coupons to give away just to subscribers for her newsletter…AND I WON!!!!
I was so excited…Sparkle was so generous with those coupons…they helped cats in New Jersey, and now they were gonna help people keep their cats in their homes in Contra Costa County in Northern California…here’s what I did with the coupons…
…the coupons….please notice they were addressed to ME!…
I told Mom and Dad to use the coupons to get as much as they could and then donate it all to my former rescue group, Contra Costa Humane Society(CCHS) for their AniMeals Pet Food Bank Program. And that is just what we did!
And Oh My Cat!…was this ever needed…this is the message on their website about the urgent need for CAT FOOD..
“ANIMEALS: Our cat food supply is nearly exhausted! Any donations of cat food (dry or wet) are greatly appreciated. Please feel free to drop donation off at our CCHS office throughout the week, or by leaving it in our AniMeals barrels outside our office afterhours. Thank you!
More and more pets are finding themselves homeless because their families are facing tough economic times. AniMeals Pet Food Bank is a partnership of Contra Costa Humane Society, the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, and Pet Food Express that helps financially challenged families and individuals keep their pets in the home.”
Mom delivered the food to the barrel outside my former shelter, Kitty Corner…owned and operated by CCHS…
…it doesn’t look like much…but it looks like a lot to cats who don’t know where their families will get the money for their next meal of kibble or canned food…and Mom also finished filling the barrel with donated food from my VET! Civic Feline Clinic! They give CCHS all the dry food people return to them and they can’t resell…pretty great, huh?!
And did ya see the pretty kitty looking out of the window there at Kitty Corner…????…that’s Eli…pawsome, huh?
…here’s some more watching what Mom was doing…
So Sparkle, you made my Thankful Thursday a very full one…thank you so much!
Paw pats, Savannah
