Blogathon No More?????

Hey Everydoggy!

As some of you know the Kapp Pack was planning to participate in Blogathon 2008 and blog for MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue. Well, the organizers of the Blogathon have decided to take a year off from planning the blogathon this year. This was very upsetting to hear since we were all looking forward to it and coming up with plans to make the humans stay awake for 24 hours straight.

We even had a corporate donation. A couple of weeks ago we received a box from Fur the Animals. It contained all kinds of various dog and cat related items. Some very cool stuff Canyon wanted to claim for his own! Fur the Animals also agreed to donate gift certificates for their website. For a $35 pledge the sponsor will receive a $5 gift certificate and a $50 pledge will get a $10 gift certificate. 10% of every order from their website goes to a rescue of the purchasers choice.

Well, I've made the executive decision that even if there is no blogathon this year we will do our own blogathon on July 28th. We'll figure out a way to keep track of donations for the event and a link on our blog to make donations.

There is talk of an alternathon so we will see how that pans out.....We'll keep you all pupdated!!!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

Pee ess: Be on the lookout in the weeks to come for teasers of our giveaway items for the blogathon!

13 woo woos:

We like your plan to do some kind of alternative! We aren't good at staying up late (unless there's a storm, then we have to turn the computer off anyway...) but we WILL find some way to support you!

Holly said...

I'm so bummed that blogathon will not be going on. I sure hope the altrnathon takes place so all the doggies can benefit from the fundraiser!

Can't imagine mistress staying awake for 24 hours. She can't even manage 12. Me neither if I'm honest.
